{July 12, 2012}   The Jud & Bill Prize Package – She is Finally Revealed!

Remember Amy Ragg, our winner of the Jud & Bill Episode 11 Contest?

Well, the hardworking people here at ODNT mailed off her glorious prize package this week … and we just received notification that she has received it!

hardworking /härd·wər’·kiNG/ cheese-eating, oversleeping, always looking for a shortcut to get the job done

people /pē’·pəl/ ODNT herself and her two kids, undoubtedly violating the child labor laws of this country 

glorious /glô’··əs/ something you would give your co-worker as a gag gift

And, in the interest of building suspense and keeping the surprise for Amy, we didn’t want to reveal the contents of this valuable prize package … until now.

suspense /sə·spens’/ a cheap and lazy grab at another blog post

valuable /ˈval·yo͞o’·ə·bəl/ worth at least the cost of the envelope and stamp that got it there

So, here’s what Amy got in the mail today. Hold on to your hats.

First, there was the letter. And, with the bottomless expense account afforded to me here at ODNT, I used only the finest stationery.

bottomless /ˈbä’·təm·les/ whatever could be scraped together from the recesses of her purse

stationery /stā’·SHə·ne·rē/ loose leaf shoved in her girl’s bedroom drawer next to a ceramic kitty

Then, as the letter promised and because we are all about it here at ODNT, I included some of the finest cheeses I could get my hands on here in the Southeastern Region of these United States. For the record, they are considered a delicacy in this household.

finest /fīn’·est/ edible, suitable for mailing, within the budgetary limits

delicacy /del’·i··sē/ something requested for inclusion in a Christmas stocking, best enjoyed with Wheat Thins

And finally, my favorite part of the prize package. My girl (dubbed ODNT Jr. by my pal, Mel at According to Mags) took the time to recreate our famous Jud & Bill portrait in watercolor, customizing it with a special message for our winner.

Check out how it compares to the original winning photo (coincidentally submitted by Amy’s father, Wyman Ragg) for our Jud & Bill Photo Contest. Perhaps I’m biased, but I think the kid is simply amazing.

She even signed it on the flip side.

flip side /flip sīd/ Sure, I could’ve just said “back” but I like the sound of flip side. Reminds me of 45 records and my youth.

youth /yo͞oTH/ something just revealed to have taken place long ago by letting the term ’45 record’ slip

Editor’s Note – From the messages I’ve received since announcing this secret prize package, I know I have disappointed many of you by NOT sending a hamster through the mail to Amy. Quite frankly, I’m very flattered that you considered me competent enough to devise a method for mailing live cargo. Maybe next time.

I’d have to use dry ice, right?

One can only wonder at the wonderment Amy would have found in the package after a hamster travelled cross-country with 3 cans of squirt cheese…

Amy says:

It was seriously the greatest prize package I could ever have received! I had it on display last night for my entire middle school team to gaze at longingly, but I took particular pride in sharing it with a couple of my fellow English teacher colleagues. They were understandable awestruck but its magnificence, and by that of the creators of said package.
ODNT, you are a rock star, and Junior is a natural! Nurture that brilliant, budding young Botticelli, my friend. That girl is good! (Said in my best Eddie Murphy Coming to America voice.)

My thanks and love to you both,
Amy

That is very impressive artwork, ODNT Jr.!

Well done, Amy. Great gift and post, ODNT. :)

And I was thinking packing peanuts might work (and be cheaper than dry ice) for the future hamster prize.



Great artwork! The winner truly got a bounty of prize prizes.

Why didn’t I ENTER!? Oh, the delicacies I’m missing. That’s no joke. I could put the hurtin’ on squeeze cheez.
