The simple mention of Mario Brothers conjurs up many emotions and memories for me. I am taken back to a dark time when Kelly and I pretty much locked ourselves in our unfinished basement and prayed (yes, we PRAYED) that we could pass one of the most difficult levels, Water World. It was so hard not to drown when you were being attacked from every angle!
Kelly and I were absolutely obsessed. And I have to admit that my dad was not far behind and he may have actually been the third victim to get sucked into this addictive game. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that he played Nintendo after we went to bed.
I guess this is where I should say that you must thank God for unanswered prayers because Kelly and I never made it past stupid Water World. So, we obviously never beat the game. Pretty pathetic, I know. Pathetic that we prayed to pass Water World and pathetic that we couldn't beat it EVEN with the help of God.
I learned that there is a new Wii game coming out. Mario Brothers for Wii. Are you kidding me? Could there be anything more awesome? I am so excited and cannot wait to get it.
When I purchase it, it'll be for Connor, of course. I wouldn't buy something like this for me.
