Benjamin thinks that I am pretty good at it as well. He actually keeps signing me up on the WoF website, hoping that I would get on the show and win him lots of money. His confidence in me is really sweet.
My turn finally came. I received an email invitation while I was still in UT for an audition. I agreed to go and was excited. I bought a WoF game on my phone and practiced and tried to prepare for the audition. My audition was only a week after we returned from our trip.
The fateful day arrived and we went to a nice historic hotel in downtown Louisville, the Brown Hotel. It seemed surreal, I was just waiting for someone to say that I had been punked.
I had been wanting to color my hair for some time and decided that this was the perfect opportunity. I had my hair highlighted for the first time in my life. It took much, much longer that I had anticipated. The whole aluminum foil in the hair was interesting as well, as was the head warmer.
We went back twenty minutes later for the second round and had to continue to clap and smile and cheer. I really tried to be peppy, but I am too serious and focused when I am puzzle solving. They thanked us all for trying out and said that we should look for a letter in the mail. If we did not receive one, then that meant that we did not make the show. They thanked us again and told us that they hoped we would not stop watching their show even if we did not make it on.
I did not receive a letter. Sigh. It's probably better this way....
