a deal?

So it’s official, Deal or No Deal is coming to Central IL, for an open casting call on Tuesday, April 1st. They will be at the Hickory Point Mall from 1pm until 4pm. I will definitely be there that day.

“But you’ve already been on Wheel of Fortune!” you might say.

Yup. But – you’re allowed to go on 3 game shows in life. Why would they have that rule, unless it was totally possible? I know I won quite a bit on WOF, but with everything I won….we ended up with a dishwasher, and less debt. Which is AWESOME.

But why not give it a shot? Even the “losers” on Deal or No Deal end up with over $100,000 usually. 🙂 I’m cool with that.

Taking a moment to seriously check myself for wrong motives, I make a mental list of why I would love a booster shot to our bank account:
– pay off the car/house/college loans

– possibly move to a new house? One that Sophie would actually get a closet, and maybe even with sidewalks for the girls to play on!

– gasp – a mini-van?
– allow Sarah to be a stay-at-home mommy for as long as she desires!

– etc. – depending on the amount, being able to help out some family/friends with random things too. To be in a position to share something like this would be sweet.

Yeah, I think those are decent motivators. No crazy desire for a Corvette or a Harley. No need to “pimp my lifestyle” with unnecessary toys. Okay, so maybe I’d buy a new hockey jersey or a new mac laptop….but I can swallow those.

I’m a family man now. So mature. So old. ( or maybe I’m getting good at pretending)

so my recommendation to you? TRY OUT FOR THE SHOW!! Someone has to get picked….might as well be YOU! 🙂



Husband, Father, Pastor, Missionary, Writer, Poet, Friend, reader, coffee enthusiast, hockey Wing-Nut, musical participator, etc...
