Triathlon Subterfuge

I could use this to justify buying this, but it might really be about this.

Yeah, I was a 13-year old male in the summer of 1977.

Oh, and I'd probably need something like this to go with.

This all seems indisputable--go for it...

But wait--I have the perfect essay for you, did you read it already?!?

That's only the opening paragraphs, though--it's in the collection called "The Disappointment Artist"--let me know if you want me to xerox...

Well at least not being a 13 year old male anymore means you possibly have the funds to buy the cool toys now :-)

My wife bought one for me for my 45th birthday. Now she can find me sitting down stairs playing with my wii.

On a side not it's kinda wierd when your 14 year old daughter asks to play with your wii. I hope she doesn't talk about my Wii at school. I expect social services to show up any day now.

Ha! I'm 32 and just bought an XBOX 360 so I can play online with my friends who are the same age. It's sooooo addictive!

I hear ya.

Two Saturdays ago, I took an afternoon nap and woke up to learn that an XBox just walked in the front door, loaded up Halo 3, and forced Michael to start playing.

Freaky.

I love Star Wars on any game system.

No justification is required. That's Man Law.

you are such a boy.

wee have a wii. I call it the wii-wii. So far all it has done is inflict wii-injuries upon my household. There are certain repetitive use injuries that are exclusive to the wii.

you have been warned.
