Flashback

So how happy was I when I just got Guitar Hero Aerosmith this payday? Really. Most of you out there who know me, have already figured out that I haven't grown up too much. There's a clue. But there is a problem also. You see, we are fortunate to have a son who doesn't ask for the latest technologies as soon as they pop up. He is actually a waiter. Think about this. He is 12 and only recently started asking for a cell phone and an ipod. How have we made it this long you ask? I don't know the answer to that but I do know that we are very blessed. Our wallets are blessed. So when he asked for a playstation -last year:)- we got him one. He keeps it in his room. It is HIS. So now think of how happy I was to get MY game and then how disgruntled I was to have no way to play it. Being HIS game system and all. No no no, I just couldn't follow along with the rest of the world and buy all the game systems for the entire family. How was I to know that when we got him this present that I would be one to want to play with it? I should have referred to the picture here and planned ahead. So now I am in a bittersweet blissful state until I can BORROW the playstation and practice for my upcoming battles. I do have to say that he is a nice sharer so I don't want to make him out to be a meanie. Plus I have to be nice so he WILL share. So as I think of all the money we have saved in not getting another video game system, I will sit here and wait my turn. (sigh)

HOw 'bout this....Watch him like a hawk and maybe he'll do something slightly wrong and you can ground him by taking away his Playstation! (Sorry, BB, but Momma needs to play!)

hmmmm.. I like the way you think!

Yes, you're the Mom now, you can be evil. I learned from a master.

Have you gotten to play yet? Is it awesome? Did you play the Joan Jett song? Is it awesome? Can I come visit? I'll bring my own Playstation and guitar.

I recognized the picture the minute I saw it! Boy, was I surprised. Sorry, I have to be your MOM again...share and share alike.

How did I get into this? Learned from the Master? Not very nice! I'm here minding my own business and get called names.

You were called a Master! That's not a name, that's a compliment.

I'm thinking BB must have shared his game system with his Momma. I haven't seen her on any of her normal sites for many many many many hours. SO--is it great? Was it worth the wait?
