WHAT'S YOUR WINNER'S CURSE?~*~
The ‘Winner’s Curse’ is an economics term that means you’ve gotten what you wanted – but at too high a price. What would you pay too much for?
Happy Saint Paddy's Day! I'm so happy to be doing my first Blog Tour with such an EPIC series.
Isn't this such a compelling question? How would you answer?
For me, I think I would pay too much for the health and well-being of my family. Does that sound like a stock answer? But I honestly cannot imagine living without my mom and other family members. Arin's story in The Winner's Trilogy is so heartbreaking because of all he's lost. Even Kestrel, losing her mother at such a young age and having a father so distant. And I can never even conceive of going through something like that. So I wouldn't be able to put a price on it but I know for a fact that all I would want and what I would pay too high a price for is my family. For their safety, security and happiness.
Like Dean Winchester or Jim Kirk of the Star Trek Reboot, there isn't really much I wouldn't do for my family. They've always been there for me from when I was born one pound or needed open heart surgery to now as I embark on my future.
On a lighter note, I'd also say that I'd probably pay too much money to go book shopping with Chris Pine, hang out on the set of Supernatural or see The Winner's Trilogy be made into blockbuster movies. I mean, can you imagine having Arin on the big screen? Swoon.
That's why this question is such a good one! There are so many answers. When I was younger, I probably would have answered meeting the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer or starring in an episode of Charmed. Obviously things change.
Would your answer change? I'm wondering if the Kestrel we'll meet at the end of the series would make the decisions as the Kestrel at the beginning? What would Arin choose?
