Life is all about Choices!
Life is like a road. There are long and short roads; smooth and rocky roads; crooked and straight paths. In our life many roads would come our way as we journey through life. There are roads that lead to a life of single blessedness, marriage, and religious vocation. There are also roads that lead to fame and fortune on one hand, or isolation and poverty on the other. There are roads to happiness as there are roads to sadness, roads towards victory and jubilation, and roads leading to defeat and disappointment.

I think it was called Take Your Pick and it involved the oily host, Hughie Green, alternatively buttering up and intimidating poor members of the audience, who were invited to "take the money" -- a certain amount of cash he offered them, with readies in his hand -- or "open the box". Inside the box might be far more money, a wonderful prize The suspense was -- would the guest make the right choice? Whatever they decided, they then had to open the box, with Hughie goading them, "You took this much money" or "You turned down this much".
