An excerpt …

HOST: (standing as GUEST enters) Hello, I’m _______________.

GUEST: Hi, My name is _______________.

HOST: So, _______________.You’d like to be a contestant on Single Jeopardy.

GUEST: Oh, yes. I’ve been waiting a long time.

HOST: Sorry about the wait. We’re running about 30 minutes late.

GUEST: No, I mean I’ve been waiting years to get on this program. Does this mean I’m going to be a contestant?

HOST: I’m afraid it’s not that easy. Have a seat. (They do.) We first have this interview, then if you pass, we trace your life history. We start by questioning the nurses at the hospital where you were born.

GUEST: I don’t know who they were. They all wore masks.

HOST: Never mind about that now. You say you are familiar with the program format?

GUEST: Oh, yeah. A faithful watcher … viewer … type person.

HOST: Even though you know the procedure, I am required to explain the mechanics of the program.

GUEST: I don’t remember seeing any mechanics.

HOST: (has done this routine many times) You will be the only contestant on stage. On the big board there will be 48 choices arranged in six columns and eight rows. You will make a choice by saying, for example, “One – six.” Meaning row one, column six. An answer will open and you have to give the correct question. You will have four minutes to correctly answer as many as you can. The other contestants on the show will do the same procedure. Most correct responses wins. Got it?

GUEST: Yes.

HOST: This interview is to get acquainted and pose a few trial questions. Any questions?

GUEST: Uhhhhh …

HOST: Very good. Let’s proceed. Let me give you a hint. We’re looking for personalities. Someone different and interesting … has done exotic things … lived life.

GUEST: Oh, that’s me to the tee. I’ve lived life. Lived every day since I was held hostage in that hospital with the nurse outlaws.

HOST: Tell me about your most interesting experience.

GUEST: (thinking) Interesting … most interesting … hmmmmm … something to get on the show … Well, I was in South America, in the Amazon River basin. I was taking a bath in the basin when an alligator … or maybe a crocodile, they look a lot alike … came after me. I threw a box of soap and the gator ate it and I was saved.

HOST: How so?

GUEST: The gator went out with the Tide. Then I caught a case of yellow fever. I’m not sure who threw it but it was a whole case. I got infected by osteoporosis ….

HOST: Osmosis?

GUEST: Whatever. I’m over it now but I still can’t stand to wear anything yellow.

HOST: Is that a true story?

GUEST: Yes. It is truly a story. Do they have to be true?
