over the years, nintendo games such as dance, dance revolution, karaoke revolution, and american idol have provided the entertainment for birthday parties as well as many sleep-overs. and, more recently, guitar hero and rock band have provided katherine and her friends a reason to hang out safely at home with something fun to do.
well, the nintendo gratefulness tide turned on saturday afternoon. oh, i'm still grateful. but, katherine and chico were really feeling the "nintendo love" a couple of days ago.
it didn't, however, have ANYTHING to do with playing the games though...
this past saturday afternoon, i was not feeling all that great; so i decided to lie down and take a nap. i could hear katherine talking to chico on her phone.
from her end of the conversation, i discerned that the two didn't have enough money between them to go out to the movies, which they'd planned to do.
"i've got some old games you can take, too" i heard katherine say.
"you two are not selling your nintendo games to go see a movie???" i hollered from my room.
katherine walked into my bedroom. "chico is just going to the music, movie, and game exchange to sell some of his old games..." she responded.
"well, i don't want you to sell your games THAT I BOUGHT YOU to pay for a movie ticket:/" i told her.
but, that was exactly what the plan was (dani shakes head).
hence, chico came by with his games. katherine gave him three or four of her old games that she assured me she played no more, and he left to go bargain with the broker while kat finished getting ready.
about fifteen minutes later, i heard katherine's phone ring. "you can't???", "they won't???", "no, mom's asleep; i can't wake her up", and lastly "well then, what are we going to do???" i heard her say.
as i lay in my bed, i wondered why the two hadn't
just asked me or john for the money for their tickets...
but they hadn't... and, i hadn't offered;)
i heard chico return.
i called for katherine to come into my room.
"do you need money???" i asked her.
"no," she answered. "we got $30 for our games."
"oh," i replied, "it sounded like chico was able to sell them???"
"well, you have to be 18 years old to sell, and chico won't be 18 until december. so, he had to call a friend to come sell them for him..."
i nodded my head at her and smiled (as i chuckled to myself).
"we're leaving... love you!!!" she said as she kissed me on the cheek.
"love you, too... be careful!!!" i said.
it was all too funny watching the two "wheel and deal"!!!
love and blessings,
