OK, Nintendo, Where's My Cut?

I'm waiting for that paycheck, I'm telling you! As of this post, I'm counting about 8 different people that are seriously considering the purchase of a Wii Fit, thanks to my sales techniques and numerous demonstrations.

Last Friday, I spent all afternoon with Kara - playing away. Later that evening, it was Michele that I had hooked. On Monday, Nancy, Christy, and Amy came over to Hula Hoop, Slalom Ski, and Tightrope walk. (Nancy took over the high score on her first attempt at the Ski Jump - way to go!). Yesterday, after spending time praying at the church together (10 Days of Prayer), Steph H. and Lisa Q. came over and gave it a whirl. Both loved it.

Today, it was my mom over for a "playdate". I had no doubt she would get a total kick out of it, my only regret was that Michele couldn't be here to play with us. Mom demonstrated a natural knack at the Tightrope (like Mother, like Daughter), proved she can Hula Hoop with the best of us, could easily get addicted to the Table Tilt (like the rest of us), but is NOT ready to put on a snowboard and take off down the slopes. Her true forte', however, is the Yoga exercises. She took over 2 of the 3 top scores on her first effort in three different exercises (2nd place on the other one). This comes as no surprise to me as Mom is exceptionally skilled in Dressage - and all of the subtleties that that sport requires requiring body control to be in synch with the movements of your horse.

So, Mom - well done... and I think you ought to start dropping hints to Dad about what you might want for your birthday come March!

If I tried to do that move she's doing in the picture....there would be a blurry moment as I frantically reached back for my foot, followed by some grunting noises and finally the crash of a body on top of the wii fit board. The only yoga pose I excel at is the plank! ha! Way to go, you guys! I think every family I know has a wii. I'm starting to feel like the last holdout.

I'll tell you what, Heather, I think we've already used the Wii more this year than all of last year combined. Moving it into the living room and having this new game has made all the difference.

We don't have a Wii either and your post almost convinced me that it may be time to get one...
