Of video games, one that never drew my interst was the Mario games, where two short, Italian plumbers do stuff.
So, you can imagine my surprise when not one but two of my sons became utterly entranced by Mario.
One of the will only wear Mario shirts (he has four identical shirts, given to him by various people, his teachers must think we let him wear the same shirt over and over.) The other is entranced by everything Mario and talks about him all the time.
Is it the big blue eyes?
