If your furniture, appliances, and other inanimate objects at home had feelings and emotions, to which item would you owe the biggest apology?
Dear Wii U,
I’m really sorry for the way things have worked out between us, I don’t think either of us anticipated it ever ending like this.
When we first met, our honeymoon period was strong and significant. I wanted you during all my free time, and even when I wasn’t available, I was still thinking of you, thinking about when we would next be together, sometimes even counting down the hours until we saw each other again.
But then I’m not really sure what happened – I finished Super Mario bros. and then there was a sudden void. You weren’t really offering me anything that was of interest, neither was there anything appealing on the horizon.
Before long I fell back into my previous routine of working late and I simply ran out of time to devote solely to you. I still continued to by games in the anticipation that we would reconnect with each other once again, however it never came to be.
Days became weeks, and weeks became months. Suddenly the only time we would touch each other would be when I’d wipe all the dust off you, to make you look all pretty and shiny again.
But then something even worse happened – a string of games were released on PlayStation, and suddenly I found myself in the lounge room watching my rekindled relationship with my PS3 rapidly flourish and steal my heart. Don’t get me wrong, I felt incredibly guilty that this was taking place whilst you were just in the next room, but I couldn’t help myself.
I wake up and see you every day, and I know that you sit there, watching me sleep, but that doesn’t bother me anymore. I know you’re just lonely, and I know that I’m the one to blame for that. I do have every intention of us reconnecting again, but I’m just not sure when that day will be.
I hope that you can find it in your heart to forgive me.
