If I leave work at exactly at 5:50, by the time I get downstairs and to my car, it would be at 5:58pm. Just enough time to pull out my phone and dial in to Kiss 95.1 radio station’s Tix at 6 contest. Of course, more likely than not, I miss it by a few minutes.
Once in a while I get lucky and listen in right on time. It is the perfect entertainment while I sit among the sea of red tail lights (Rush hour never endssss!). It doesn’t matter what the prize is, I love the adrenaline of dialing in. The whole call takes 3 steps – dialing the number, busy signal and redial again. Except a few times, I managed to get through and a voice replied “Number XX, try again.” But during those few seconds, it is quite exciting to think my call could be the next winner.
Today I left work just in time to dial in. Like usual, I dialed in, expecting a busy signal. Instead, a lady host picked up! She announced I am caller #9! Thanks 95.1, Lil Sis and I’ll be heading to see Jake Miller in concert in February! Until then, I’ll continue to dial in and test my chances. 🙂
