To think I almost changed the channel

In elementary school, there was a boy named Steve Wisneski (I'm sure I've spelled it wrong). He had curly blond hair, and adorable smile and squinty blue eyes. All the girls loved him. He also had a wooly vest that our teacher made us all touch because the texture was interesting. I had the biggest crush on Steve. His family moved away when we were in the 4th grade, or thereabouts, and no one has heard from them since.

Over the years, I have thought of Steve in passing at least once a year or so. I wonder where he ended up, what he became, etc. He was just a really sweet kid and soooo cute. So, I was sitting here at the computer, trying to come up with a blog post when Jeopardy ended and Wheel of Fortune came on. I usually change the channel because, truth be told, I'm a little annoyed by the Wheel these days. However, the remote was across the room and I was typing a note to the Roy. So imagine my surprise when Pat started introducing contestants and STEVE WISNESKI--Yes, the very same one--was the first contestant. He's still cute for a 40+ guy and according to his left hand, unmarried. (although he has a "friend" in the audience with his brother, Dave, and his mom) He didn't win the final puzzle, but he did win $30,000 in cash and prizes. Hey Steve, call me (mimes phone with thumb and pinky).

Everyone has their 15 (or 22) minutes of fame! That is so cool!
