My 'Millionaire' Audition

Yesterday Jay and I went to our "auditions" at the ABC building to try out for.........Who Wants To Be A Millionaire

After getting there early, we waited on their longg line which was great since my feet were killing me and this gave me a chance to stand still. Thinking I was clever, I wore my tiny heals instead of bigger ones to no avail! I managed to get blisters before the fun even started!

Finally, we were ushered into a large room and were given pencils, scantrons, and large envelopes which contained our "tests." Across from us was a girl who was an "actress" and a guy who went to some prestigious University and was an engineer. Big whoop

So once everyone was inside (and past the metal detectors), we all took out timed 10 minute, 30 question test. Now I don't remember all the questions but it sounded like this:

3. What color are Viagra pills? Are they A. Blue B. White C. Red or D. Yellow? The correct answer is blue and I got it right!! I'm so smart right? Another question was about Kelly Monacco who won the first season of Dancing With the Stars (the one I didn't watch). Which soap was she in? A. All my children B. General Hospital C. Days of our Lives or D. Blah blah blah. How the heck should I know??

As you may presume, Jason or I did not meet the par and failed :( Jay got most of the questions right though so I was shocked they didn't call him back.

After the test, they called all the numbers of the people who passed. Some of the ones who passed were these elderly people. How they knew the word Gwen Stefani spells in one of her songs- b.a.n.a.n.a.s- is wayyyyy beyondd meeee. But. Goodd luck to them anyway.

What matters is that I had fun and understand that if the engineer guy didn't pass, then I don't have much to worry about!! In fact, afterwards Jay and I went to a store (well I sorta limped) and I bought myself flip flops...I had to.

Putting all the failures and blisters aside, we might actually go back next week :)
