Fateful Encounter

I was doing laundry last night and noticed that all my white socks have holes in the heels. I could barely find a pair that weren't threadbare enough to wear to work today.
So, I was driving home from work today and thought I'd stop at the local Target and buy some socks. Walking through my happy place I decided to take a swing by the electronics department. We received some Christmas money from my father this year and had been keeping an eye out for a Wii. Let me say, those puppies are hard to find. I have been making periodic checks at various stores, Target, Game Stop, Best Buy and Circuit City in the hopes of finding one.
What's up God? First you don't want me to have new boots, and now you don't want me to have a Wii? Don't you love me? Don't you want me to be happy????
So....back to my story. I'm walking past the displays in the electronic section and there it was.
One solitary Wii.
My Wii.
I almost hugged the guy who unlocked it for me so that I could buy it. Now I just have to figure out how to hook it up. Spiderman will be so happy when he comes home from work! I have a feeling that I'm not going to get a lot done the rest of this week.

"I decided to take a swing by the electronics department." Yeah, nothing good ever starts with that sentence. The last time we swung by electronics, we ended up with a 54" TV!

Congrats on the Birth of your Wii. That was on my list too, but I will just go visit my son and play with his. I love the bowling, tennis and boxing.
Well, did you buy the socks? Or are you going to cut out the Wii cardboard and make you a pair?

Yes, I got the socks.
But I was so excited I did almost forget!
