No one really loses on “Jeopardy” or “Wheel of Fortune.” Do they?
Thanks to media-hungry sponsors even contestants who fail miserably by consistently guessing wrong leave stage with a toaster oven, some Dr. Scholl’s foot inserts, or the granddaddy consolation prize of all – an Olive Garden gift certificate.

Even those relationships that crash, burn and leave us tattered and torn, come invaluable lessons. He describes those insightful moments post relationship when you realize that you can’t be with someone who drinks, snores or supported George Bush and deserve happiness after all as “Relationship Parting Gifts.”

Still, reading this had me quickly retracing some eye-opening events of past relationships, searching for the teachable moments.
Nice thought. But I still prefer the “Jeopardy” system.
