One Year Price Is Right Anniversary

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Note: I know the blog is a mess right now, and I’m so sorry! I’ve been told the picture issue is going to be fixed soon. I’m doing the best I can with the resources I have. I also know the emails don’t go out every night…

And this is my fault’s – not the website’s – but this post should’ve been on March 19. So, imagine this is 11 days ago, and let me take you back:

Now that it’s been a year since The Price is Right, I wanted to re-visit that day one more time. In case you missed it, here’s the video.

I know we’ve already talked at length about the day. We’ve also talked about the taxes. But it still boggles my mind that it actually happened.

Throughout the past year, every once in a while, I’d watch my show again on my DVR. Or sometimes my dad would call to tell me he watched it again. Sometimes we just wanted to see it again! ‘Cause it’s cool. It’s super cool.

It has just sort of become a fact about me, like, “Yeah, I won a car on The Price is Right.” I’ve certainly calmed down since the initial day when I was basically shaking and pretty much unable to form coherent thoughts… (That lasted more like a week than a day.)

But, even though I can function in the human world again, I will never forget how amazing that day was.

The other thing that’s so crazy is that I got to play the *exact* car game I’d always dreamed of playing. Not only did I get to play for a car, which is the big dream, but I always said if I could have my way that I’d play “The Money Game.” And that’s exactly what I got to play.

So much had to happen for that to work out! They obviously don’t play it during every show. I could’ve been at a taping where no one played it. I could’ve been called down earlier or later. In my first time through contestants’ row, the last girl to bid could’ve dollared the girl before her, making the whole order different on what ultimately got me up there for the car. In the time I did get up there, Rori (the girl after me) could’ve dollared me.

So much could’ve been different (as it could be with all things in life). But the stars aligned. I played my dream game. I won my dream prize. And I am just so unbelievably thankful for an absolutely perfect memory that I will never, ever, ever forget.

I'd love to hear from you! So whaddya say?
