Nintendo DS brings out the odd in people

Scene:Dinner time, Sparky in the kitchen and Mrs Duck on the couch, plinking along on her new pink Nintendo DS lite, a Christmas gift from her husband. Christmas lights on, MSNBC in the background.

Sparky:I am going to get a cigarette, we should be eating in about...

Mrs Duck:Shhhh

S:Huh? Shhh??

MD:Yes, shhhh I am trying to speak out loud and you are distracting me.

S:Distracting, how am I distracting, I am just giving you an...

MD:God you are such a putz, go outside already, I need to do my Brain Age training and I can't talk out loud with you hovering.

S: (blink) Did you just call me a putz??

MD:yes, get out

Putz. I'm loving it. Bet you're real happy you bought that for her now.

Ooh Ooh! I got a pink DS Lite with Brain Age from DH, too! Was she playing the rock, paper, scissors game? What is her brain age? Mine is 51! Yikes!

Brain Age - $29.99
Insulting Comments - priceless


LOL - I know how she feels. We got a Wii so our conversations run to 'Freeze the balls!' 'You didn't freeze the balls, you putz!!'

Putz!! LOL!

You act like my husband, always asking freaking questions while I'm trying to play my DS, especially when I'm in Legend of Zelda mode and I need to listen to what the Gongorons are saying.

He always asks me goofy things when I'm playing with my DS.

I tend to have to agree with Mrs. Duck here.

Ya wanna know what will really mess her up? When my kids are playing that I randomly start yelling "rock....rock....paper...PAPAPER! PAPPPPPPERRRR! Scissors!" Yes, that puts them in a right bad mood!

Christine d'Abo said...

ROFL!! I've been on your end of that conversation with my husband. And it's usually when he's doing his Brain Age test LOL!

Have you played the second one. That rock, paper, scissors thing is brutal!

Nintendo ds is the best game system in my most humble opinion and you know we have them all here except the Wii...I don't get to play b/c they are my son's, however, I must say Mrs. Duck is a helluva lot more polite than I would have been. Consider yourself chastised!Do you have a game also?

Although I'm sure she didn't REALLY mean to call you a putz, I can understand the joy from her new toy. I'm the same since Mum sprung for the Dell notebook for Xmas for me. I'm ignoring her -- and the dog -- as I work on the new blog (as Annie's alter ego, Rhianna. Yeah, there's a new one). Those brain games look pretty cool in the commercials, tho...

I think it's wonderful your wife even speaks to you while playing her DS. My BF likes to pepper me with inane questions while I play word coach.

I ignore him
