TOP 10 THINGS I'VE LEARNED ABOUT LIFE FROM PLAYING (AND PLAYING AND PLAYING AND PLAYING) MARIO KART

10. You can't over steer

9. Just when you're speeding right along, you hit a bump

8. Most of the other drivers on the road are trying to win

7. It's just as fun to play whether you're in last place or first, if you've got the right attitude

5. It's noisy

4. It's an adventure

3. No matter how frustrating, there's something that keeps you coming back for more

2. There are lots of courses but they all get you to the same place - the end

1. Even when you fall off the course completely, you're always given another chance

My husband has been wanting that game for some time and has been assuring me I would like it! Maybe we'll have to try it out, though the last racing game I played all I could do was crash and then crash again because I couldn't stop laughing.

Interesting how most of those apply to life.

6. It is possible to make yourself laugh so hard while playing that you wet your pants.

Perfect, Wanda, I obviously forgot #6, and that is TRUE!

I really like that last one (#1). Mario Kart sounds a lot like life!

Thank you, Rojo, for bringing this into your mother's life.

My question is: are you playing it during the day when the kids are at school? Truth, now, Miss Carrie...

Don't you love increasing your life hearts, too? :)

You're a better lady than I...

Bet you never thought you'd be seeing life through a Mario lens. :-)
