New Thing #212: Flawsome
Last November, I taped an episode of 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire.' My cousin Jim served as my lifeline, and got me to the $50,000 question. Today I had the opportunity to pay the favor forward, and I was somebody's lifeline on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire." Friend Val was slated to tape last week but got bumped to today, by which time all but one of her lifelines got busy with other stuff and weren't able to help her. So I stepped up, and she called, and I got her the right answer, and she won at least a certain amount, which I won't reveal. I will reveal that what with all the panic over the wildfires that are eating my parents' neighborhood right now, I mistook Meredith for a family friend and told her I would have to call her back. She thought it was a joke. I'm unintentionally hilarious.
