(Missed any part? Here’s the whole series.)

Picking up from last time

I’d like to end on a positive note.

I know I’ve been over-analyzing some things (as I am wont to do), and I hope you don’t get the sense that this was a bad experience.

Of course it was an incredibly fun experience! Being on a game show? What’s not to love about that? I adore game shows!

I said I wanted to win a big prize or get zonked, and I got zonked. If I really didn’t want to get zonked, I should’ve been more careful with what I wished for!

One thing that helps keep the zonk feeling light and fun (that my dad pointed out, and I was shocked I missed) is that had the guy who won the motorcycle not gone for the Big Deal of the Day, the next person who would’ve had the option would’ve been the girl in my game who won the trip to Mexico.

Had I also won the trip, it would’ve been me!

So, if Michael had passed, and I’d seen that I could’ve played for the Big Deal if only I’d chosen the box, it would’ve been over. I’d be having nightmares to this day. But it gave me so much solace that Michael chose to play – and he won, which is spectacular. (Thank you, Michael!)

Also, it’s always magical spending time with my dad. He said he loved having the experience of going to Let’s Make a Deal with me. And I loved it as well. I mean, what a cool, fun, interesting way to spend a day with Daddy.

Now, let’s hope the next time he comes out to CA, we could get him on a show! (And let’s hope he has better luck. ;))

Thanks for reading along!

And next up, I’ll answer some LMAD prize FAQs.

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