Carpal Tunnel or Wii Tunnel?

I went out for dinner with a few girlfriends last night, and while I waited to pay my bill, the gentleman before me repeatedly rubbed his shoulder.

He turned to me and laughed. "I was playing Wii with my grandkids, and I'm really feeling it today."

I know how he feels. I use two computers while at work, with heavy usage of the mouse. While at home, my lovely little PowerBook G4 is my constant companion, whether writing, researching, or checking in on all my friends and family. By the end of the day, my elbow is screaming for Dr. Ho.

Today my son dragged the Wii from the basement, and I tried my hand at bowling, baseball and boxing. I was okay with the bowling - got a strike on the first ball. I really sucked at baseball. My timing with the bat was abysmal. I rocked, however, at boxing. I beat the crap out of Ryan the default player (ha ha!).

I'm gonna feel it tomorrow.

Wii doesn't cause cause carpal tunnel syndrome at all.
