My Wii Fit Thinks It's Hilarious

I don't know who programmed this thing, but dang.

I got on it the other night. It told me it had been 21 days since it had seen me. Then it said, "I don't know if I remember you... Steven." Hardy har har. Then it lectured me mildly.

Steven just got on it the next night. It did the same thing to him that it did to me and called him by my name. Then it asked him how he thinks I look! He had to click on options like, Slimmer, Heavier, The Same, and I don't remember the 4th option. He clicked on The Same. It told him change is so much more exciting. Then it asked him if he's been paying enough attention to me! That question was followed by a comment about how dogs are more motivated when their owners pay attention to them.

I think my Fit called me a dog.

I never thought we'd receive lectures or relationship advice from a video game!

Wow! I had no idea these things were so ... sophisticated?

I'm sorry, but this post was just hilarious! What a hoot! I don't have a Wii fit, do you like yours?

It's ok. My GPS basically calls me a moron when I miss a turn.

Allison, I hate to think what a GPS would say to me. I was born without a sense of direction!

Ann, we're really enjoying the Fit. The only exercise I've ever enjoyed is dance, but this is actually fun stuff. It's not a terribly intense workout, but I think it can be as you unlock more games and advanced levels.

I could just do without the snark and personal comments. It's way too chatty.
