Jane was a first time contestant on the $65,000 quiz show. Lady
luck had smiled in her favor, as Jane had a gained substantial
lead over her opponents. She even managed to win the game but,
unfortunately, time had run out before the show’s host could ask
her the big question.
Jane agreed to return the following day. Jane was nervous as her
husband drove them home. “I’ve just gotta win tomorrow. I wish I
