Should I feel guilty, or should I gloat?

For weeks before Christmas I would call the Keene's and strategize with Mike over how we were going to find a Wii for the Keene family Christmas gift. I was even willing to get up at 5:30 on a Sunday morning and sprint thru Target to obtain the Christmas present on, apparently, everyone's Christmas list. As it ends up, the Keene's did get a Wii, from some random person neither one of us knows. A friend of Mark's has the Nintendo account at work, so called in a favor or some such thing, and the Keene's are now the proud owners of a Wii.
We went over to their house for New Year's Eve to experience happ-wii-ness, and watch Super Bad. We had fun, the Wii was fun, Super Bad was FUNNY (if you like jr high/high school humor - which hello, we love). On the way home we had the Wii discussion; do we want one, if so when/what occasion would we get it for, etc.
The next day I woke up feeling as if I'd gone to the gym, my arm was so sore from boxing (and beating) Adam. And Adam was gloating over his conquests on some Rabbit game we played.
So, today the boys and I are at Target shopping for an upcoming bridal shower I'm hostessing, and I hear some woman on her cell phone telling a friend how Target has Wiis, and she just bought one. The boys asked to look at toys and since I was making them dig thru the 75% off racks for snowflakes for my shower, I thought it the least I could do to take them to look at toys. We're back in the toy section and I see a guy in a red shirt and ask, "So do you have any Wiis left?" He replied yes, they had one left, go the final big shipment in today and had one left he was about to put out.
I wasn't even looking, I didn't have to get up at 5:30, and I wasn't shopping for the Keene's! So I bought it, because you KNOW that when we finally decided to get one, there would be none to be found!
Dancing with the Stars here I come!!

So, did you make that woman cry because you stole her Wii while she was on the phone?

WOW! No joke!, you own a Wii!! How very fun! I particularly like the tennis game =). I think I could convince myself to get one as a "work-out" tool.
