This week's column is about the embarrassment that occurred when the author tried to purchase a Nintendo Virtual Boy -- something which is pretty embarrassing in itself -- on a ski trip to the US at 14 years old.
Funny story. I mean, if laughing at my fellow man's misfortune is funny...which, in this case, it kinda is.
I'd have to go with funny...
Truly the best guilty pleasure :)
At least he got it.
There were some awesome games for the virtual boy at the time. Seriously, I think I bought the system for like $20 and it came with Mario Tennis and Wario Land. The idea was pretty neat except it was all read. If they made that thing color and put some graphical power in it, it would be amazing... even by todays standard (if they made it smaller too!). I think for what I paid for it... I got my money's worth.
I think he should have jumped on the bus with the teacher in hot pursuit! I think that's what I would have done at that age...
