The other day I asked some friends, "if you could be on any game show, what would it be?"
People asked, "ANY game show? Ever?" "Ever," I said. "It could be Press Your Luck, the $25,000 Pyramid..."
Hmmm... this is a good question. What would you choose? What would I choose? I really really wanted to be on Pyramid with Donny Osmond. I don't think it's on anymore but I think I'd have been awesome. (I totally looked online once to see how I could enter but it appeared it was no longer on the air. :( )
I once signed a friend and myself up for Wheel of Fortune, best friends week, when I heard they were coming to NYC. Wheel of Fortune would be good because they have so many opportunities to get cash and more cash. The problem is, it's very much a luck and chance game. But I think I'm good at word puzzles. Here's a question: Why oh why do people buy vowels when it's clear they know the word/phrase? They spin and spin and guess the right consonants and then buy vowels. WHY? It makes me insane. One day Pat is going to say "That's it. NO, you canNOT buy a vowel. You are an idiot. Just solve!" Anyway, this sounds like I'm really steamed up about it. I'm not, but still, it's dumb.
My brother and I used to think we'd kick arse on Double Dare. I still do, actually. Jon, are you up for it?
I love Jeopardy, as we all know. And I am AWESOME at it and would totally win... but only if I was playing during kids week. Boy oh boy, those kids would get SCHOOLED. I like Jeopardy because I take a small bit of pride in knowing random useless facts. But you know who knows a lot about everything? SEAN. He is a freakish human encyclopedia. He said he used to read textbooks as a child. Ha ha. Sad...
sidenote: if i was on Jeopardy, I'd tell about the time I came home late one night and gave my mom quite a scare. the end. Just kidding, but that actually reminds me of a really funny story about the time my mom tried to kill me. remind me to tell you about that.
I think I would really suck on Price is Right. I'm not very good at estimating the price of things. <-- I am probably a really good shopper then, eh. "$10 for this can of soup? STEAL!"
Aaanyway, what do you think?
