I probably lost at least a pound today running around all of Atlanta stalking every Wal-Mart, Target, and game store for a Wii. As you may have guessed by now, I was unsuccessful in my efforts to win one in all of the online contests and twitter parties I have attended over the past few weeks. So I had to join the hordes of people hunting them down. The Fat Pants of course considered this a futile chase. They were ever so confident that a Wii would never be found and I would (as with most of my weight loss efforts) give up.
Apparently word of my frantic search spread to The Feds and they got word to me to call a specific Wal-Mart to check their Wii delivery status. Of course they already knew that a truck had pulled up just as I was dialing the number. The pleasant clerk assured me over the phone that a Wii would be mine for the taking as soon as I step foot in the door!
I am now the proud owner of a Wii…a weapon of mass destruction against The Fat Pants! For the first time, I am really seeing some worry coming from them. You see…the Wii is FUN…it hardly seems like exercise at all…which will make me more inclined to do it. The Fat Pants are well aware of this! I finally have some heavy amo!
They thought two holiday dinners just a month a part was going to break me! They thought that keeping me running at full speed and not having time to cook for the last two weeks was going to bring me down! 2009 is mine, Fat Pants! GAME ON!
