Whoa: My mom wants a Wii

While talking with my parents this past weekend, my mom mentioned that my aunt and uncle (her sister and brother-in-law) bought themselves a Wii--and Wii Fit--over the holidays. She then mentioned, "We're thinking of getting one, too."

You could have knocked me over with a feather at that moment, I'm sure. I mean, my parents aren't exactly gaming virgins--my mom has had a DS for a few years and both have played Wii Sports and some of Wii Fit's mini-games--but I didn't expect them to jump on the Wii bandwagon anytime soon (if ever).

(That's not my mom and dad, BTW. I stole the photo from someone's Flickr page. Hopefully they won't mind.)

It'll be interesting to see if they go through with it. Considering how much my aunt and uncle seem to be enjoying their recent purchases, I think they will--and sooner rather than later.

Have any of you had similar experiences with your parents or relatives?

Update: I just received an e-mail from my mom. They bought a Wii! Apparently she's already kicking my dad's ass in golf--though he beats her in bowling. Pretty cool :)
