My Name Was On The Radio

This morning while in the car with my dad on our way to work we heard this question:

What is the most northern state in the country?

My dad said, and I agreed with, Alaska (I think it's one of those questions where you think they're trying to trick you... Maine... or Washington... (I looked at a map and it looks like Washington has a corner that goes higher than Maine) and then when you hear the answer you feel kind of dumb).

It was for a pair of Air Supply tickets. My parents had gone the last time Air Supply was here and have been talking about going again.

I got my phone out and told my dad he should call.

He was sure that someone else would have gotten the answer already but I pointed out that when I won Beatlemania tickets a couple of weeks ago (for knowing that "definitely" was one of the most misspelled words - I had heard them say it on the radio the day before they asked that question - don't worry, I have pictures and video to add to my blog later) we could hear them giving out tickets to more than one person.

I dialed. Got ready to hand him the phone. But he told me to do the talking.

She answered asking if I had an answer and I said, "Alaska." She got my information and told me I'd have tickets to Air Supply to pick up at the station.

Turns out, they only had one winner this time.

They gave my name as the winner (I'm so glad they didn't playback my phone call).

A joint effort by me and my dad.

a more recent picture of them.
doesn't the one in the pink kind of look like the lead singer of Rascal Flatts?

You win! Hooray!

I have an irrational fear of calling in to radio stations because, at 7 years old, I flubbed up the one time the line wasn't busy when I called the kids' radio station I liked. I never got over it.
