Doctors have labeled a new ailment for those of us (me, too) who have a Nintendo Wii & use it a bit too much.

The new disorder, called Wiiitis (defined as affecting the shoulder from repetitive motion), is not only the newest fad in medicine...but also the only time I've ever seen the letter "i" used three times in a row.

I predict this won't be the end of the new "itis" phase. With everything being a disease - from obesity to criminal behavior - there's a plethora of opportunities for rip-off artists, doctors, insurance companies to make money by naming even more.

I own a Wii. I enjoy my Wii. I don't have "Wiiitis" because I don't spend all day with my Wii. If you're starting to feel a twinge in your shoulder STOP. PLAYING.

Hm, interesting prediction on the "itis" fade.
When I see it happen, I'll think of you.

I'd normally respond with "Awww, that's sweet of you", but then I realized lots of people would have to suffer for me to be in your thoughts. ;-)

Ah, you have sympathyitis...

HapKiDo said...

sympathyitis - the conflicting emotion involved in wanting to garner compassion from another while simultaneously hoping to avoid human suffering.
Good call, roses!

Stop playing?


Just switch hands :-)

That's pretty easy for us lefties...we live in a right-handed world, anyway!
