“You may soon win $10 million dollars in the American family sweepstakes!”
Ed MacMahon was speaking to me. Really. Like how a cult leader can get you to drink the Kool-Aid.
I always did… then immediately went into Neighborhood Watch mode, keeping my eye out for any vans, balloons, or suspiciously over sized checks that came around my cul-de-sac.
This went on for YEARS.
My parents would tell me to stop, since it was a waste of money buying stamps, but I would just nod in agreement, and then secretly sneak the envelope into the mailbox and raise the red flag. I dreamed about seeing the expression on their faces the day a giant $10 million check came for me, and I made the family rich!
Still waiting for you Ed… are you even still alive?
OK… Just checked Wikipedia. Yeah, so he died in 2009. Looks like we both lost.
