Rosanne lives vicariously through her television game shows -- The Price Is Right, Let's Make a Deal, etc., etc. When she is otherwise occupied, which is very rare, she even tapes them for later viewing.
She cheerleads the contestants from her reclining lift chair, applauding the winners and shedding tears for the losers.
This morning I heard her excitedly exclaim, "I picked the right one!...I picked the right one!" "What did you pick," I asked from the other room?
"The number," she proclaimed, adding "and I won a car!"
"Oh, good," I said, trying to mock her enthusiasm..."When can we pick it up?"
"Don't be silly," came her suddenly sober reply.
