First class mail

So its a normal Friday lunch hour and all is well. I leave the office to go let my puppy out and get home about 12:05. The weather has improved and it is a fabulous fall day. I check the mail before I go upstairs. I place the small key in the key hole and open the cover of the mailbox. Magazine City. 4 magazines of various sizes take up the whole box. I set my to-be-washed coffee cup down and grab the magazines.

I am hoping I maybe received something from Wheel of Fortune but don't see anything. On top of the magazines is a card addressed to London I am processing this I peek back down into the mailbox because maybe just maybe there will be another piece of mail. The. Piece. Of. Mail. So I peer back into the box and what is that? Wait. There is a piece of mail wedged in the back. Could it be? Sure enough. Bright as day. I grab it and what does it say on the front....Wheel of Fortune.

I grab the envelope with both hands and check for contents. It is a standard envelope containing two or three pages. I'm guessing a "You were great at the Auditions but....." letter and some other jive about keep watching and sign up for the club.

I open the envelope in anticipation........and what does the first line read??????

Congratulations! You have been selected as a contestant for

Sure enough. I made it. After all of this fun I'm going to be on Wheel of Fortune. Exciting stuff.

So the rest of the letter goes on like this....
