52 Date Nights: Week three, Play a video game

Week 1. Week 2Date Night Ideas PDF download here. (Not sponsored.)

Thomas was really excited about this date night, as he’s always trying to talk me into playing video games. (Well, he used to. He gave up a while ago, because I always said no. Sorry, honey!) We played Mario Kart all the time in college on his Game Cube, both individually, together, and with friends. I used to spend hours trying to beat my time on the cruise ship course, which was my favorite. We still have several inside jokes about various things that happened. One of our friends always thought Baby Peach was out to get her and called her “that little b****, Peach.” (If we could go back and play the game in his apartment with our friends I’d play it ALL THE TIME. It’s just not the same in our basement.)

Now we have it on the Wii, which I don’t like as well, mainly because I learned to play on a different console, but also because the Wii isn’t really meant for controller-based games. Since I haven’t really played in years, it was rather comical. A good time was had by all.

(And, yes! Those are our custom Miis in the carts. Or, excuse me, karts.) (Why with the K? Can it not be Mario Cart?)

  1. This is a good idea. Too bad I’m stupid-competitive with Matt when we play. He’s so much better than I am, it drives me crazy. I … might kind of suck as a person.
