(No, it’s not putting a WHERE? sign next to the House for Rent sign, though I’m really really tempted.)
Thanks to Jen I’ve been working on a list of sorts of things I’d like to do in the next 10 years. A kind of 40 at 40 thing. It’s actually been harder than I thought, 40 is A lot of things to try and accomplish much less just list. One of those things I feel deserves a post on it’s own.
I admit I’m a game show fanatic and have always wanted to be on Price is Right or Wheel of Fortune since I was really little. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this before. I will also admit that I haven’t been as fanatical as I used to be, but that does not mean that desire is still not there. Some how the stars have aligned just right and the opportunity is literally knocking on my door. I absolutely just can’t let it pass by.
The Wheel Mobile is coming to a casino literally just down the road from us, looking for contestants. I told the hubs this is what I want for my birthday, to just go and try it out for the heck of it. The odds of actually getting on the show are slim to none but I really feel I “have” to do this more than just “want”. I know that seems crazy, but here lately I’ve just had this wild hair to do wild things.
Just to get to play and try out is all in the luck of the draw. They really have everything organized where you don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn and wait in a long line, you show up an hour before the first game, fill out the color coded application and they let you know what time to show up for the draw to play. They try to play as many games as possible in the allotted time frame to let as many people as possible have the opportunity to play. Can you tell I checked out all of the details already?
I”m extremely stoked just to try, that I’ve been obsessing over it since I made the decision to go for it and told the hubs this is what I want. There is still no guarantee you get to be on the show even after jumping through the hoops but it can’t hurt to try. I’m planning on Vlogging my journey even if it lasts all of 5 minutes or better yet, all the way to the end. That would just be beyond my wildest dreams.
From now until next weekend I’ll be brushing up on my mad Wheel skillz. 🙂
