Last July, Long Time First Time and I went to New York to audition for Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. We both passed the qualifying test, only to receive “thanks but no thanks” postcards a few weeks later. However, tryouts have recently resumed, so we decided to try our luck again. After receiving confirmation e-mails, we’ll be at the ABC Building on June 22 for our second go-round. We’ll be accompanied by Long Time First Time’s mother, who isn’t a Doper but shall be known for purposes of this thread as Avocet, since she is a veteran birder who has been to every continent (including Antarctica) in search of species to add to her life list.
If any of us are selected to appear, we’ll be looking to line up Phone-a-Friend contacts, so send me an e-mail (address is in my profile) if you’re interested in offering your expertise. Meanwhile, who else among the Teeming Millions is planning to try out for the show?
