I won $50 … and here’s what I’m doing with it!

Um … I won.

I won that little writing contest hosted over at www.midlifecollage.com.

(I couldn’t have a won a contest at wittywoman.com or funnymom.com. Nope. I had to win at itsalldownhillfromhere.com. …. Just kidding, midlifecollage. I love you guys!)

I entered a story that was first published right here at ODNT called The Day Things Got Hairy at Disney World.  Remember? And I want to thank my friend, Mel, at According to Mags for pushing me to write it all down, Disney World for offering up its malfunctioning ride as the backdrop for the story and, most importantly, my boy for embarrassing the snot out of me in the first place.

Less than a week ago, I wrote a post about the contest and some of the many things I could buy with the $50 prize. I didn’t want to appear too eager at the time so I just left it at that.

But now … with the good news tucked safely next to the oversized comb in my back pocket … I’ve decided on my purchase.

Click here to see how I feel I can best spend the fifty bucks.

And you all know good and well that the blog will be affected by this special purchase. I have plans, people. Big plans.

Stay tuned for more … and thanks for your support!

  1. This is the best choice ever. It’s a versatile costume/outfit. For Halloween, you can match up with someone who is a bottle of mustard, a bottle relish, a large hot dog, a hamburger, an egg and bacon, or you can stand alone. You can also throw it on for holidays that people wear a lot of red like 4th of July or National Ketchup Day. So many uses, so little time.

    Congrats on your win. So glad we can push each other to write mortifying posts. It obviously pays off. Now…which one is next? I already have one since Mags seems to present so many opportunities. 🙂

    AAAAAND thank you for the mention. You are too kind.

  2. I . . .ummm . . . I approve, yeah, that’s the ticket. I approve. 🙂

  3. You’re getting something for the cow, aren’t ya….

  4. I think of you as more of a taco than ketchup. Congrats on the win!

  5. Hooray! You deserve it – the prize AND the ketchup !!!

  6. Well, congratulations! I can’t wait to see what you plan on doing with that lovely costume. Hmmm…

    (Thanks for linking up with us over at #findingthefunny last week!)
