Years ago, I stood in front of Toys R Us… at midnight… in 25 degree weather, and waited in line for HOURS for those silly Zhu Zhu pets. After that whole fiasco, I told myself I would never stand in line again. So I was a little frustrated when my husband called me from work this morning and asked me to go to Target to get the new Wii U. My one day to sleep in. Kids at Nana and Papa’s house, hubby at work, time to rest and relax. Not so much.
So, I rolled out of bed, threw on a hoodie, put my hair up in a poney tail, and drove up the road to Target where I was number 13 in line! After about 20 minutes standing in the cold, I started swearing at my husband in my head. “Why couldn’t you pre order this stupid thing like other smart people?!”
A lady worker came out to tell everyone that they only received 11 systems. That’s when it became a competition.
“Are there really only 11? Are you just trying to see if some people will give up? I’m number 13! I could turn around and get in my car and go home, or I can wait and be victorious!”
So, I waited… and waited. At 8:00 the doors opened and the line quickly went to electronics. And guess what…. there were 2 couples, so I ended up being number 11! I got my game system and games! Woo Hooo! Suckers!
Santa is going to be a hit again this year! They will play the games for an estimated 30 minutes at the most, and then not play them again for a year or so. Yep, feels good!
