$100,000 VS $1,000,000

You know those days when you just doin't feel like paying any attention to anything that is going on around you. You'd rather just stare off into space and dream of those sunny beaches and the sand between your toes?! Well today was one of those days. For me, anyways.

I was sitting at my computer (on NorthWest Farm & Ranch, of course) When Hubz started commenting on a TV show that we were watching. Now to give you full effect I do have to mention that these conversations happen often. Did I say conversations?! I meant him talking/me listening(ish). So we were watching the show, Deal Or No Deal, and it happened to be the show where the lady was on the Million Dollar Mission and she had 10 (yes I said TEN!) One million dollar cases. Well her first offer was $139,000 and Hubz started to laugh and said, "You know.. it's really funny when people will go on The Gladiators and get the crap beat out of them for $100,000 and a person is just standing on the stage.. naming cases and her FIRST offer is over $125,000. Because you know those shows that only give away $100,000, like The Gladiators and Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader, and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire...."

It was at that point in time when I noticed that something just didn't make since with that sentence.. Um.... no. Sorry. I don't think that one fits into that catagory.

Needless to say, Hubz feels dumb now. He's hanging his head in shame on the recliner.

See... I do listen.

(most the time.. okay maybe some of the time.)

I have to agree with your Hubz.
The people on Deal or No Deal get so
greedy when their safety nets crumble , I can't stop myself from screaming at the screen. Same formula everytime. They get what would be considered a windfall offer to anyone else, have no safety net left which would keep their offer from dropping and they go ahead and do themselves in anyway!
