A Contest I Won’t Be Entering

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!

What does half of that stuff have to do with being a good handyperson anyway? I - for one - think you would be excellent on TV but I wold rather have you all to myself!!

Ye gods. The best exhibitionist, more like it. Why don't they just ask "boxers, briefs, or commando"?

You are good. And would be good on tv. But with you on not wanting to do it.

The info requested has to do with casting and the potential to build intersting story lines around whomever is cast. The handyperson part is almost inconsequential.

While I wouldn't want to complete that form, I'd like to think I would be a great tv host. But then, I like to think a lot of things. However, as you know, I have zero tool-using skills. Oh well. It'll be interesting to see who this will go to.

Please throw another "e" into that first "interesting," if you don't mind. Thanks.
