What Would You Say? Day 30 of 31

Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for hosting the March Slice of Life Challenge. Please visit their site to read and comment on other stories.

The Johnsons are a little nerdy, all in a good way. Every night at 7:00, whoever is home gathers to watch Jeopardy and then Wheel of Fortune at 7:30. We're all pretty good at the Wheel, but Zach is the king of Jeopardy. He knows a lot of facts about a lot of things. 

The other day I posed the following question to my family as Alex Trebek introduced the contestants, "What would be your claim to fame?  What would you want to say about yourself when you got introduced?"

For the life of me, I couldn't think of anything out of the ordinary to say about myself. I haven't traveled to 53 countries. I wasn't a Raynette (back up singer for Ray Charles).  Those people come up with the best stories. 

I think about this every time the Jeopardy jingle begins to play. So far, nothing great has come to mind, but I did find this article from NPR that might give me some ideas. 

So what would your story be?


  1. I'm not Jeopardy material, but I loved the slice and the article.

  2. Jeopardy is one of the few shows I watch. My family is always telling me to try out, but I know that signaling button would be my downfall! I'm not sure what I would share, either, but the article was interesting. Thanks for sharing it.

  3. Interesting topic and article! I think we all could have the same story -- we're slice-of-lifers!

  4. Not many people can claim to be National Writing Teacher of the Year!
