Don’t Leave Home Without It

This past weekend we travelled to Sunbury, PA to visit some friends of ours. One of the highlights of the night was going to be everyone getting a chance to play the Wii – or so I thought.

Whenever we leave on these Friday trips, their is usually a sense of urgency to get things packed up and loaded as soon as possible, so we can get to wherever we’re going sooner rather than later. Why I don’t just pack things up on Thursday night instead is beyond me.
So I packed everything up, including the Wii, and we drove off. After we arrived, we spent some time chatting, and then went to set up the Wii. To my horror and embarassment, everything was there – the remotes, the sensor bar, the games, etc. – except for the power cord!

I felt so bad, since our friends’ kids were excited to play the Wii. If we hadn’t been so far away, I would have turned back around to get the cord.

In the end, we had a great time just visiting, watching some TV, and just generally hanging out. Plus, now we have an excuse to visit again sooner rather than later.

So, as the saying goes, “Don’t leave home with out it.”
