Why did we ever buy it!!?

I remember life before the xbox. It was a quiet, peaceful time...well quietER - I do have 2 boys 3 years apart and peaceful might be stretching it a bit...maybe.

I hate the thing.....oooh that felt good! I've twittered about destroying it...tying it to the back of my car and taking a couple of spins around the block. Watching it in the rear view mirror as it bounces off the curb, bits flying everywhere......a girl can dream.

At the very least, I think a hammer (such as the lovely one shown here - it has a nice balance and weight to it) should be included in the accessories for the xbox. I mean it's gonna happen eventually - why make me go look for the one buried in the garage somewhere. I could prop it up right beside the damn thing as incentive. Maybe put a plaque underneath that says "in case of excessive fighting, grab and start pounding the ever loving crap out of box - pound until there is nothing left and then pound some more"

What I probably need to do is start an Internet support group for mothers who live with xboxmania - we could get it diagnosed as a real disorder and get some serious medication to help us through the days. You know, the kids come and tell you they want to play xbox - you say, "okay honey" and wolf down half a bottle of Valium.

This could be my life's work - a way of giving back to the human race...mothers and fathers everywhere could benefit. I'll keep you posted on the future website to be

Keep your hammers at the ready ladies!!!


  1. My husband has a PS3... we got some games that we have to play together. So no need for a hammer for us yet. ;)
