For anyone out there that doesn't know, Dance Dance Revolution is a video game played with a pad with arrows on it. Arrows fly up the TV screen, and players have to step on the corresponding arrows on the pad at just the right moment in an attempt to perform various dances. There's lots of different versions out there, but the one I got is played with a Nintendo Wii. With the Wii's version, there's also hand motions that players perform by waving a couple of remotes around. It's hilarious to watch people play. They look like they're trying to stomp ants while having some sort of seizure that results in arms flying up above their heads. It's quite a work-out.
Several years ago at an arcade, I played a dancing game for the first time, and I was hooked. At the time, the games weren't really available for home use and a used arcade game system was well over $3000 (I liked it so much I looked!), so I only got to play a few times a year at the arcade. It's such a fun game, and when you play, you're exercising and you don't even realize it! I really wanted one if there was ever a version that was practical for us to get (well...not practical...video games are never very practical I guess).
Anyway, my husband knew how much I liked the game, so he and Colter schemed together and got me one! I'm so excited! Now I can play games and exercise at the same time! Yippee! Maybe I'll dance away 20 pounds and not even realize that I'm sweating.
I'm going to have trouble on Father's Day helping Colter find a gift for his Daddy as awesome as the one I got. Any ideas?
