And the Winner is

Radio Disney runs a lot of call-in contests. The blond twin recently decided this was her ticket to fame and fortune. She has been listening to Radio Disney to hear when she should call in.

The deal is she tells me when to dial and I dial the phone. Let's face it, she could dial any number of unsavory toll-free numbers by accident. She excitedly grabs the phone from my hands and waits. And waits. And waits.

She walked over to me, handed me the phone and announced, "This thing is broken. I haven't talked to anyone yet."  I tried to explain that they receive thousands of phone calls and cannot answer them all. She didn't care. She wanted a different phone.

This is one of those lessons she'll learn the hard way. Yes, she might win a radio contest, but the odds are better if she just saves her money to buy whatever it is she is trying to win. Of course that won't stop her from trying. I'm chalking it up to youthful optimism.
