The Digihusband and I decided that Santa is bringing a Wii to the household this year. Problem is, now, how to find one?
My husband set out this morning with a plan (and gritted teeth) and on his second stop - the first being Target - and after exhausting his options on line, he walked into a GameStop in a tiny, nondescript strip mall in the middle of Santa Ana.
"You guys probably don't have any Wii consoles, do you?"
"Actually, sir, we just got a shipment of 18 in - would you like to buy one?'
Meanwhile, at work I was talking to Boss Lady and she was telling me she wanted to get one for her kids, but was getting nervous because she had not started looking and was hearing horror stories of unavailability.
I got home and my husband told me his story. I jumped to my cell phone.
"Pam, I might have a Wii connection!"
This GameStop being only 5 minutes from my home, I sped over . . . and snagged Number 18, the last one, with no sign on the horizon as to when the next shipment was coming in. I dialed my boss.
"Dude, I just bought you the last one!"
"Dude, I so owe you!"
So for anyone out there contemplating a Wii for Christmas, I found you the Wii Tracker. Get 'em while they're hot.
