Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd

A conversation with Matt

Thoughtfully penned on April 20th, 2007 and generally concerning Sidetrack'd, TV

Monday evening we were watching Wheel of Fortune because I’m a game show junkie it was on after the local news. There was one contestant who had not won a round, and Matt and I were discussing the fact that now you get $1,000 at the end of the game whether you solve a puzzle or not. The following conversation ensued:

Matt: “It was more fun when they gave party gifts like Metamucil and Pop Tarts.”

Me (laughing): “Did you say party gifts? They are part-ing gifts.”

Matt: “No, he used to say party gifts.”

Me (still laughing): “No he didn’t. They have always been parting gifts.”

Matt: “Well, I always wondered who had a party with Metamucil and Pop Tarts.”

Noise from the peanut gallery

  1. How funny! I actually miss the WOF days where you could take your prize money and spend it on the gifts they had to choose from. I always imagined what I would purchase with the money (I know that was YEARS ago when they did that).

  2. Ha! Ha! You can ask Andy- I have lyric-osis! Ha! HA! Sounds like something I’d say! ha!! laughing too hard!

  3. So funny! I am always messing up things like that!
