Shhh! Don't Laugh!

Omigosh! It's been a LONG time since I've laughed till I cried. The worst part is having to do it quietly.

My husband brought home XBox's Dance Dance Revolution tonight for the kids. We thought it would be a great way to have PE and let the kids play on the TV. Mae is absolutely in love with the game and hilarious to watch. Unfortunately Nathaniel loves it too. There is nothing more sad to watch than a 9 year old boy with zero rhythm. Chris and I are sitting here laughing into each other's shoulders.

Y'all, I'm going to attempt to video tape this at some point. You all need to see it too. If you don't already know, the game involves a large plastic floor pad attached to the game system. On the pad are large arrows to step on. A song plays on the screen as coordinating arrows scroll up, prompting the player to "dance". That's hardly what this looks like.

Y'all come visit. Laugh with me!

Until I write again ...

If you REALLY want to laugh, get up there yourself. Better yet, get Chris up there to do it. :D Some friends of mine have it for themselves for exercise and we all spent an afternoon one day (husbands included) trying it out. You can imagine the rest...

LOL! Chris is actually pretty good at it, tho he only played twice. Something about not wanting to have heart attack. I'm afraid to try - I'm horribly uncoordinated and avoid all video games. I'm sure they'll get me to try at some point, but no video cameras allowed!!!

LOL I want to get one. I would have to get the GameCube one though and I believe they are no longer making them. I have been watching eBay :) I would have to try it out when everyone was out (like that ever happens rofl).

Which is exactly why I haven't tried it out. That, and I'm afraid I'd go crashing thru the garage ceiling.
