Today Kyle, Mom, Derek, and I were all in town shopping for various things. Well- my mom and I went into a Michaels, and Derek and Kyle went into Target because they didn't want to go into Michaels. Kyle asks "If there's a Wii can I buy it?!" and I, knowing Wii's sell out really fast, say and in a very sarcastic voice, "Sure Kyle, if there's a Wii you can buy it." and off the boys go, I didn't think anything more about it.
About 10 minutes later I get a phone call from Kyle...
Kyle-"Ok- they have a Wii! Can I really buy it?!"
Alli-"They have one?!?!"
Kyle-"YEAH! There's only one left can I get it?!"
Alli- "Kyle I wasn't being serious. Do we really have the money for that?"
Kyle-"Nooo... I won't get it."
Kyle- "ok bye"
I get off the phone and my mom gives me a little speech about how he is the one that earns the money and I just need to let him do it... so I call him back and tell him that he can get it, still not thinking he would buy it.
My mom and I are now standing next to the dollar bins in Michaels and I'm looking at ribbon (I love ribbon and I have a box that I have to still need to fill up so whenever I see ribbon on sale I try to get a few...)
Kyle walks in and has a Target bag in his hand.. I look like I've just seen a ghost and ask "What's in the bag?"
Kyle- "YAY! We got a Wii!"
Alli-"You're so lying, what's in the bag?!"
Kyle opens the bag- "A Wii!!"
I am seriously shocked. With high desperation and panic I say "Can I get some more ribbon?!"
I turn frantically to the ribbon and start picking various ribbons and every time I grab one I say "I want this one, and this one, and this one"
My mom is the background asks "Do you want a basket?!" As I'm carrying like 12 things of ribbon in my hands- I ended up getting 20. :)
There was a lady right next to us that is dying of laughter. It was pretty funny. She told us it totally made her day- and she hadn't laughed that hard in a long time. It was pretty funny.
Anyway- Long story short, Kyle bought a Wii. It's pretty fun to play :)
