spin that wheel

This is a main hub inside of the (humongous) Dubai Mall. And what exactly was I doing in a shopping mall?

In order to avoid the question, allow me to explain today’s post in “Wheel of Fortune” format:


(Pat Sajak) Eli, spin that wheel!


(Eli) I’d like to buy a vowel. “A”

(Pat Sajak) Yes, there are 2 As


(Eli) hmm, I’d like to solve the puzzle, please. Is it: INTERGALACTIC SHOPPING SPREE?

*extended dramatic silence

(Pat Sajak) YES! Eli, you’re moving on to the bonus round!
