Or rather, SQUEEEEEEEEEEE UUUUU!!!!
My husband and I aren’t very good at doing “Christmas” on Christmas. Since we tend to do most of our shopping online, it’s hard to hide packages from one another, even if we ship them elsewhere and try to bring them home in secret. So awhile back we decided to just give up on the whole thing and deal with our presents whenever we could during the month of December. That said, we are still pretty good at getting each other unexpected gifts. With that in mind, after a weekend shopping run, when I came home to find a Mario/Luigi Wii U box siting by the door, I was absolutely flabbergasted. Seriously. Like ghasted with a whole bunch of flabber mixed in.
After I picked up my jaw from the floor, I went on a “No…you shouldn’t have…but…I don’t even …WHAT??…where did you?…HOW?…” ramble. Ever since our discussion about new systems, I was sure that our money was being saved for either a PS4 for an Xbox One. Once my incoherence stopped, I stared, still stunned, at my husband. All he said was “Merry Christmas.” Y’all, I coulda cried.
But I didn’t, because there was some setting up to do!! After moving our nearly abandoned Wii to another TV, we placed the Wii U in its new home.
As of today, I’ve only had little bits of time here and there to play Super Mario Wii U (so fun!), but I should have more time this weekend to invest in gaming. I’m perfectly giddy at the thought of Cat Mario (eventually), and hell, maybe even Wind Waker (again) and Donkey Kong (again), but mostly at the thought of having a brief holiday hiatus with Mario. Just the way it should be. 🙂
