To be one of the 100?

I forgot to check my phone this past morning. Just when I was reminded, I took it from my green messenger bag. To my surprise, seven SMS ready to be read; Not a typical scenario as I often receive, on the average, less than 5 text messages in a day, two of which are SMART's unsolicited promo texts (such an annoyance sometimes). As I skimmed over the new messages list, I saw this ostensible promo text from 231. I was about to delete it, good thing, I read the first part of the message 'cause it wasn't one of those SMART alerts. It said verbatim:

MOB:May chans ka 2b a 1 vs. 100 contestant!Ur invited 2 come 2 ABSCBN QC on SATURDAY 9/22/07,10am for screening.Bring valid ID & ballpen.Dnt erase ds msg.

Hahaha! My first reaction was to laugh. I couldn't believe the one registration SMS I sent a couple of weeks (or more?) ago, on the night I first watched 1 vs. 100 would really entitle me of a screening invitation.

When it sank into my mind, the next imperative question came in... should I go to the screening?

I was supposed to leave the metro this evening for my weekly reprieve to my hometown. I guess that would be postponed until tomorrow afternoon, right after the screening.

Yes... I am going tomorrow. Haha! This is so out of my league, and it's making me anxious!

Tomorrow will sure be a new experience. I only like participating in such quiz shows from a boob tube perspective. A probable participation inside that boob tube is a different one. Haha!

----------

The irony of it all: I do not watch 1 vs. 100, except on the night I sent my registration out of sheer curiosity and whim. (^_^) Good luck to this seemingly capricious pursuit. Who knows I might end up getting a bit richer after all. *Wishful thinking*
