That’s What I Want

 

The stage was set up to resemble a bank. The back of the stage looked like an open vault with loads of paper money and gold bars inside. The host, a used car salesman lookalike, cheap suit, slick black hair, came walking out from the vault over to a contestant, a wide-eyed, eager typical middle-class American guy, standing at a miniature version of a teller’s counter. The host in his best radio announcer voice said, “Welcome back to That’s What I Want, the game show where we find out what’s more important, money or anything else. Now, Kevin, the last round you won five thousand dollars playing Money Matters, and rather than donate those winnings to childhood cancer research, you decided to gamble it all and spin the prize wheel, which landed on Dollars behind Doors. That brings us to our final round. Kevin, are you ready to play Dollars behind Doors?”

“I sure am, Chuck,” the contestant said, grinning from ear to ear.
