My stock line in client meetings is "Architects make it pretty, I keep it from falling down."

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:
 
S _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _   E _ _ _ _ E E _
 
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!
 
Regards,
