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.
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!
