I forgot to mention that a couple of days ago, I became the proud new owner of a Nintendo Wii, stupid name and all. It’s more fun than a barrel of squid, but I’ve started to notice a disturbing trend: whenever I play for an hour or so, I’m sore the next day.
I don’t think this is because the Wii is an exceptional workout, although it would be great if it were. No, I think it’s because I’m in exceptionally bad shape. There’s just no way that waving a wand around is that physically strenuous. The good news I suppose is that when you’re in as bad of shape as I am, then even playing video games can be considered exercise. The bad news is that it’s ever gotten to this point. Sigh.
