The Saga of the XBox...


My Dad bought the boys an XBox for Christmas. Ooh-la-la you should have heard the excitement! Till it wouldn't work. Ptttttttttt. Nothing more disappointing than Christmas morning disappointment, eh?

The Day after Christmas Chris took the XBox back to the store and came home with a frown and a promise that they would call when they had another one in stock. Hmmmmm. Could be a week. Mmmmmmm. Grumble. Grumble.

Around dinner time they called. Yes! Chris packed all three boys into the car and went to the game store since I was out walking with my walking buddy. (He wanted it so badly he went by himself WITH the three children...) They bring the second XBox home, hook it up and moan. It doesn't work either! Can you believe it!?



I call my friend Susan and she and her family come over to share their working XBox and any assistance. Yup, our second XBox doesn't work, but they lend us their XBox for the night (yippee) and hubby is back out to the store.


He comes back with a third XBox (they had another one in stock) and wonder of wonders it works. Oh, yeah, I forgot to tell you there was a roach in the box, but he took care of that...
