I'm bouncing off the walls again...

So like I get in my car this morning. Put the radio on KROQ to listen to Kevin and Bean, it's commercials, I change the radio to 94.3 which is becoming my favorite radio station and their morning DJ says something about proping your dad and win prizes for your dad. I look at my phone and decided to try and be caller 20,21, or 22. "You're caller number 20." Taz (the DJ) comes back on and tells me what I have to do. Basically I get 15 seconds to talk about my dad and the other 2 people talk about their dads for 15 seconds as well. After that people call in and tell Taz who they think should win. So now I'm nervous. I have to be on the radio. I've been on the radio before when I was much younger and asked some questions on a sports show. I start thinking about what I'm going to say and then all of the sudden it's my time to talk...

"Dad, I just wanted to say that respect you, and that you are the type of dad I want to be. You've always been there for me, your're great, and I love you. You are the best dad in the world."

I was so nervous. I didn't think I had a shot. It seemed to corny. But at the same time I really meant it, and compared to the other two, (which didn't really say much.) I thought I might have had a chance...

Three songs later... Taz comes on and says it was close, in fact the winner won by 1 vote (supposedly). They play the tape... I couldn't figure out who it was at first, then I realize it's my voice!

I won! Dinner at Outback Steakhouse, a Pool Cue, 4 tickets for the Speedway in Costa Mesa, and Tickets for the Chris Issak concert. Not to mention My dads in a drawing for a weekend stay at the Ritz Carlton.

I couldn't believe it. So I gotta stop by the radio station during my lunch to get my prize package.
