A Fortune-ate Haiku
Wheel of good Fortune,
I’m who you need on your show.
Help the Bucket List.
On Saturday, A forgotten fortune cookie was found in a cupboard of my home. “Great Fortune will come in unexpected places.” Though I’ve yet to experience (monetarily speaking) the “great fortune,” yesterday proved to be quite fortunate in other ways.
followed stalked the Wheelmobile for a few years in hopes of fulfilling the top item on my bucket list-‘Being on a game show.’ You may have recalled this post two years ago. Michael has been gracious to let me keep trying and until yesterday, I’d never been called to the stage in the initial set of auditions/lottery drawing.
(Picture from the 2010 audition–For yesterday’s audition, I was rushed and didn’t even think about bringing my camera.)
I’ve gone to so many sessions without my name being called, I had actually gone and gotten back in line for the next session. I was shocked when Mr. Marty (the Pat Wannabe) called my name! I’d love to be confident in the spiel I gave about myself, but we’ll just have to wait and see if it was enough. And regarding solving the puzzle, I was about to state the solution on MY turn and the girl next to me squealed out the answer. Shame. Shame. Shame. So now, I’ll hope and wait, and then stalk the Wheelmobile some more, if need be. After all, how else can I cross ‘game show’ off the ole bucket list if I don’t keep trying??
And just for fun, the category was ‘Rhyme Time’ and I believe this to be how much was complete of the puzzle. I ordered a ‘D’, but didn’t have time to say the answer because RUDE LADY TO MY RIGHT did so. Shame on her. I hope she doesn’t make the show. But I’m not bitter…
Would YOU like to solve the puzzle?
