Well, I was one of those people that didn't think the strap for the remote would break under normal use, but leave it to my wife.
Last night during a very intense game of tennis, the remote slipped out of her hands, broke free of the strap and made a journey into the kitchen. The battery cover popped off, the batteries flew out, but the remote seems to work ok, so hooray for that. And don't worry, I did end up beating her in Tennis.
Maybe it was sending a sign to your Wife to get back to her Stove ^^ lmao
A new strap is coming out in Feb 07 I think since Nintendo are reviewing their strapsBecause your strap is like conencted to 2 wires. And so are all pictures lol
