Yesterday Laralee and I sat down to play Mario Kart– still my favorite video game of all time. As we started up the game, an announcement popped on the screen: we’d now played 3,600 times and that qualified us for a new vehicle!

It was called the Spear. I jumped on it with Rosalina, but it kind of sucked.

I guess what struck me was that we’ve played Mario Kart 3,600 times. I shudder to think how many hours that is. And yet… it’s kind of cool.
