Recently I've been thinking about the role Game Shows play in my life. I know, I'm deep.
The summer my son was twelve was sort of rough. He was too old for day care. We lived in a neighborhood with mostly retired people so not many kids around to play with, and it was the one time in my whole career that I worked full time for someone else. That meant some pretty long dull days at home for my son.
I'm not sure how this started, but each day at about 11:45 he'd call me. What show is on every day from 11-12? The Price Is Right!
He'd tell me what the items were in the two showcases and we'd each make our bids. We'd chat a bit during the commercial and then he'd tell me the "actual retail price" and we'd see which of us did better.
Flash forward 13 years and now my husband and I live with my parents. Around 2:30 my dad starts giving me the countdown, "Half an hour to go" etc.
3:00 ---Family Feud. Two episodes! We watch and try to answer the questions. Debate whether something really is a "good answer" and I practice my fast money skills just in case I ever get my chance on the show.
Maybe we aren't a real touchy-feeling family, but I guess through game shows, we get a chance to connect.
Come On Down!
