I Was Sent to Remedial Wii

My nieces bought their Wii game with them on their visit to see me. That was genius because it kept them busy while I worked. Yesterday my oldest niece asked me to play a game with her and I said sure. So I go into the living room and we begin playing some sort of Mario driving game. I just knew I was going to lay the smack down on her.

Well, things didn't turn out the way I anticipated. That damn car was all over the road. I could not stop that thing from smashing into every wall and barrier there was. She changed courses for the next game to something called the Coconut Mall which was supposed to eliminate any falling off cliffs on my part. Uh, not so much. I kept falling over the elevator. She then loudly proclaimed, "How do you fall over an elevator?" Whatevs.

She then declares that I need some practice time and then sent me to remedial Wii by setting up the game in training mode so that I could get some practice before I played again.

I think I may never drive again. Hell, bring out Galaga or Space Invaders and it's on!

For whatever reason I can never do well at the driving games, either and I drive for a living. It's not at all like the real deal...thank goodness! Challenge them to some pinball or something and see who comes out a winner. ;)

I once wanted to take up flying till I went on the virtual flying tutorial and endangered the lives of actual people on the ground. Rewmedial Wii...who knew?

BoyShoes does the same thing to me... I think it's payback for all the times I kicked his butt when he was a little kid...

I totally suck at driving games. I'm always up on the wall or in the grass. It's crazy.
