I am the best wife ever because I got my husband Wii for Christmas.
I got it on ebay Monday. Bid on one with wii play/remote, extra nunchuk and Mario Galaxy, Got it for $465. Not too bad considering retail plus tax would have been $400.. I paid $30 something in shipping and it arrived on Wednesday. The guy who I got it from, he had more auctions just like mine and I was the one who paid the least. Someone paid $530 before shipping!
I returned Brian’s PS2 w/ all it’s games to EB Games, because that had been our plan had we decided to get one. I got $66 for everything. I used my brother’s PS2 as a decoy. I returned Mario Galaxy to Walmart and repurchased it from EB Games with the money from the PS2 sale. We have $8 left over to spend there. My brother gave me cash for the extra nunchuk to give to Brian for Christmas.
I had nightmares of him finding out before Christmas. And all the running around had me ultra grumpy and tired. One of the reasons I didn’t even try to get one at the store, they always had people waiting in line. My one really good chance would have been when they had the huge release at every story, but it was snow and ice, and people had been waiting in line before 6am.. No way could I have handled it LOL..
Then Christmas came, it was the last present of the day. I had it over my parent’s house, as we were going there for Christmas day and I knew that he would want to open it to play right away and I would want to head over to my parent’s.
The look of surprise on his face was priceless and worth all that I went through to get it.
He played all afternoon. I fell asleep and he woke me up to catch a glimpse of my Mom playing the boxing game. It’s a lot of fun and I am really good at bowling and I love Mario Galaxy. I really want the Nights game. As I was a huge fan of Nights on Sega..
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
