A Wii for Mii

6 Apr

After leaving Abby’s house on Sunday, I stopped off to visit my other little buddies, Sam and Ilana.

They’re seven and four years old, respectively, and great fun to hang out with.

On this particular day, they were anxious for me to play with them on their Wii, so I obliged. Believe it or not, I’d never played on a Wii before, which was a problem because these two were pros — especially Sam, who booted up Wii Sports and challenged me to a match on Wii Tennis.

Well, before I knew it, Sam had beaten me three games to one. The kid really was good!

So we moved on, and the three of us played some Wii Bowling.

Fortunately, I got the hang of this game early on, and I ended up “rolling” three or four strikes and a few spares.

Suffice it to say, I beat my two younger friends quite easily — though Ilana kept things close in the final frames.

(And yes, remember — she’s four years old.)

Then we did as planned, and the first- and second-place finishers competed in a Tennis rematch. This time I was more comfortable, and I beat Ilana three games to two — after a few deuces.

After I beat Ilana, though, I saw the look on her face, and I realized something: I was having too much fun, and my competitiveness was getting the best of me.


You’re supposed to let the kids win!

Who doesn’t know that?

So we went outside, and Sam and I played a game of one-on-one basketball, followed by a game of Horse.

Yes, I let Sam win both games — though I did make it interesting and didn’t go down without a fight both times.

It was all in good fun, of course, no egos were bruised, and both kids definitely enjoyed my playing with them (though I’m not sure how much their parents enjoyed my riling the kids up).

And, like on South Park, I had to admit that I’d learned a valuable lesson: I really really really really really need to get myself a Wii.

I had a damned lot of fun playing those games, and now I’m sort of anxious to polish my Tennis skills — not to mention my skills on other games.

After all, I definitely have the TV for it.

So yeah, I need to get Mii a Wii real soon. (Oh yeah, and I need to let the kids win next time too.)
