Nintendo Nostalgia

This ukulele rendition of the Super Mario Brothers theme song just made pine for some old school NES action. In junior high I bought a used Nintendo from my friend with the money I saved from my summer job at the swimming pool. It was a great investment. Many Super Mario Brothers battles ensued with my sister(s) that followed this basic formula:

Turn on the NES game console and select a two-player game. Sister(s) achieves first player status due to birth rite (this procedure was established years previous with Pac-Man on the Atari). Sister(s) starts turn, runs full speed into the first enemy on the board and dies. I assume control, proceed to play my turn for the next two hours whereby sister(s) has lost interest and found something else to do allowing me to play sister(s) when I finally die.

It was a glorious time.
