Those of you that know me well know I have had a long winning streak. I’ve won raffles, things on the radio, even prizes on a game show. It’s hilarious!
In the spirit of this awesome carnival giveaway that’s going on right now (go and enter to your heart’s content…you’re likely to win something!) I think I will show just how important it is to enter. And, while you’re at it, don’t forget to enter my giveaway!
They say, “You have to enter to win.”
“They” are right.
I’ve been the correct caller on the radio at least 10 times over the course of my life. I’ve won: Tickets to a “lazer show,” tickets to a boxing match, tickets to a movie premiere, two really cool stereos, and a T-shirt. The other prizes escape my memory.
In raffles, I’ve won cakes, mugs, and the assorted gift certificate.
When I was 8, I won a coloring contest. I was never particularly good at coloring, but I think only a few children in my age bracket entered. I won a $50 gift certificate to Toys ‘R Us. Try being 8 and winning that much money in toys. It’s very cool. The only thing I remember from that shopping spree is getting a Skip-It. Remember those? Lolz.
And finally, the most ridiculous/hilarious things I’ve ever won: A queen size four-poster bed, a LaZboy chair and ottoman, and a TON of dishes.
Yes, gentle readers, I was a contestant on the Price is Right.
