Playing With My Wife

Tom, Erin and Colin at KinderCare (by tlbignerd) Tonight I got to do one of those rare things which are far more enjoyable than I’d really expect.  I got to play with my wife.  I know what you’re thinking…  and no, we weren’t running around the house playing tag… That’s just dangerous.  And yes, I know what you were really thinking, and that’s even MORE dangerous.

Tonight, for the first time, Erin and I played on the Wii together.  I got a pinball game off the discount rack at Costco, and it’s become one of my favorite games, next to Geometry Wars.

Tonight Erin saw me playing and she joined in.  I kicked her butt up against the wall, as any good husband should when asserting his power and prowess.  We won’t discuss those games where Erin got two or three or even four times more points than I did.  All I remember are the games I won…  all two of them!

Anyway, it was really just fun.  We sat and laughed at each-other and watched expectantly, waiting for the other person to mess up, and secretly hoping they wouldn’t.

Good times, everyone should get a Wii.

So, in case you’re counting, my recommendations for required Wii playing are:

  1. Go Diego Go!: Safari Rescue (required for anyone with a kid under 5)
  2. Geometry Wars: Galaxies
  3. Pinball Hall of Fame

Peace,
+Tom
