Young Jeopardy! Fan

Posted in Anecdotes at 20:15 by Trey Austin

My wife loves to watch Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! (they come on in that order where we live). That’s our usual thing to do at 19:00.

Tonight was the “tie-breaker” for the first-time, three-way tie on Jeopardy!. We were watching intently the Final Jeopardy question (about some astronaut who went to space in 1961), and, as usual, the theme song played for Final Jeopardy. Pretty much everyone can hum the “do-do-do-do” tune. It has become, in our American culture, synonymous with people trying to answer a hard question or some other kind of decision.

Well, my wife, my seventeen-month-old daughter, and i were all here in the living room watching, and the show was going off after Final Jeopardy was over, and just as the music stopped, we noticed our daughter, young as she is, was humming the Jeopardy! song, “Do-do-do-do…”.

I’m sure it’s a sign of things to come.

    Tim (Prussic), no sooner did i read your comment than it was perfectly fulfilled in my daughter’s diaper.

    You may have a future as a prophet, or at least a Christian fortune-teller!
