Yah. Old Fashioned.

Public school is finally out.

It's raining today. (Go figure.)

The boys were heading over to the neighbors to play.

Rainy days mean potential "screen time". And there was great rejoicing, because the neighbors have a Wii.

Me: "Guys! Go have fun with your friends! What if they didn't have a Wii? Build something with Legos, or set up a plastic animal world, or... "

Wyatt: "I'm not obsessed with the Wii."

Tate: "If they didn't have a Wii, we could... play the Ninendo!"

Gunnar: "Yah, I like the 'intendo just as well, because - you know - I like old fashioned things."

Ha! If they like old fashioned, they could play Frogger on Atari. Or, if they want to go really old school, they could play with dinosaur bones, rocks, and sticks. Since we're that old, you know.

Or how about a Mattel "Football" game? I remember playing "Pong".

Woo-hoo, fun times.

*eyes roll*

Actually, they're pretty good at playing with rocks and sticks.
