This week's Express Yourself topic asks "If you could be on a game show or reality show, what would you choose?"
For a game show the answer is easy: Jeopardy. I have a seemingly endless capacity for Trivia. I am also often told by people "If I ever get on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire you are so going to be my lifeline." Coworkers have phoned me at home to get the last answer for their crossword puzzle. I am a little weak on science and math, but as long as its not final Jeopardy, I can steer clear. And I will be sure to brush up on Potent Potables by reviewing Mod Mom Beyond Indiedom's Cocktail Saturday posts.
My second choice would be Cash Cab. There isn't as much money on the line, but on the other hand there is the mobile and street shout outs when one gets stuck.
Picking a reality show is more difficult. I have no sewing or design skills at all, but I would go on Project Runway just to be mentored by Tim Gunn. My family agrees that my cooking skills, though limited, are better than the standard expected on Worst Chefs in America. Dance Moms is one of my guilty pleasures, and Abby doesn't scare me half as much as the Girl's actual dance teacher does; but I would probably kill one of those moms and would definitely give Candy Apples Cathy a good shaking.We just started watching Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout? and although I think I have most of the basic skills, the first episode they did rock climbing, which is definitely not one of my areas of expertise.
Maybe I need my own reality show. Call it, oh I don't know, Meg on the Go. It will be the thrilling adventures of a middle aged working mom who, along with her husband, frantically races about juggling 2 kids, ballet, baseball, and Boy and Girl Scouting, while trying to find some time for books and blogging.
Now that's a show that I would watch.
