I was in the kitchen putting the dirty dinner dishes in the dishwasher when my wife yelled out "STRUCTURAL ENGINEER".   We couldn't believe it.

Nothing is ever said about STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS.

Thanks for being there Stan.

It was 6:38 PM, Dallas Time, and my wife and I were in the middle of dinner.  In the background, Wheel of Fortune was on the TV.  I wasn't paying much attention to the show, because food was a higher priority.  Suddenly, my wife said "I don't believe it" and I reluctantly looked up from my plate.
The category was "Occupation" and the puzzle in-progress read:

As I rose from my chair with my arms raised high in celebration, the middle contestant solved the puzzle without any further letters.
He won $3,500.  It should have been much more!
