I'm a Type-A, competitive person. I thrive on a little friendly competition and, if there's an instance where it happens to be a chance to show up someone who's a bit on the cocky side, count me in.
I love to win, but I don't have to. I think we all know people who have to win and frankly, I could live without them.
The other thing about winning is that sometimes it's good to know up front when you shouldn't bother. I'm smart enough though to know when I'm bested and when I should just leave things alone. That's the case with this contest that HGTV is sponsoring in search of The All-American Handyman/Handywoman. But, a sincere thanks to those of you who have suggested it to me. I really appreciate your confidence! Honest, I do.
I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who are much more qualified than I am based not only on their DIY skills, but also their ability to host a TV show. Me? I'm still holding out for YOUR D*mn House -- after, of course, I hit Powerball.
Besides, look at that application! I don't think there are more than two or three people on the planet who have THAT much information about me and I'd prefer to keep it that way.
So, may the best Handyman/Handywoman win!
