What Is This Child Doing?

Your child asks you to "play a game" with him and you go into the playroom to see what he wants to do. He's holding a remote control, and takes a couple of swings with it, making various wooshing noises. Then he hands you the remote and says, "your turn!" What is he doing?

I'm not certain, but I think he's pretending to play tennis on the Wii. Is that meta or what? He's pretending to play a game that in itself is a pretend game.

OK, counterpoint here: SwingDaddy says that he's seen Q do the same with a toy hammer, so the Wii connection is likely just fanciful imagination on my part. Q has really not seen the Wii a whole lot, particularly not the tennis game, but it was an entertaining thought.

Crack me up, what goes through his mind? But the happy expression on his face makes you want to join him.

Are we the last family on earth that doesn't have a Wii?

I had that figured for a Wii side-effect, too... huh.

Leeanthro - no, wii don't have one either.
