Go Paula

Last night on American Idol (yes, of course we watched again) there was a wonderful interchange between a contestant and the judges.

Thomas, the contestant, had just shared two pieces of his story; one, he had slept behind a row of dumpsters the night before because he had nowhere to stay, and two, this was his third time auditioning for the show (he never got past the “screeners” on his prior attempts).

Randy then says, “So you know what this means, right?” Thomas said, “Yeah! Third time’s a charm!” Randy said, “Or it’s your third NO and you’re out!” Then, a great thing happened. Paula turned to Randy and said, “Randy, if we quit after our third NO, we wouldn’t be sitting here.” Oh, yeah… this time Thomas is going to Hollywood (dog!)
