Let me explain:
This last Friday was my company's work party and my first year celebrating with SC&M.
Our Christmas luncheon, held at The Little America, was delicious, and even though the entertainment was definitely a bit long for me (and NOT Christmas related, by the way (who planned that?!)), it was still fun to not have to be at work for a while.
So, apparently, at SC&M they do a prize drawing every year at the Christmas luncheon. And there were some really good prizes! A lot of cash was given away, Jazz tickets, laptops, and the ultimate prizes, 2 flat screen TV's.
Well, being me who never wins anything (okay, okay, so, yes, when Crack and I went to San Francisco she won 3rd row tickets to Wicked, but again, SHE won, not me. And then when Wicked came here last year, yes I won 3rd row tickets, but I went down and tried EVERYDAY, so the odds were that eventually I would win those, but other than those two examples, I really never win anything. Ask anyone in my family, we're just unlucky that way.), I was completely surprised when they pulled my name out for $100.
$100 great! I'll take it!
I sent Mike a message saying, "I won a $100, but that means I'm out of the running for the flat screen TV's."
He said: "Give it back." (Yeah, right.)
So . . . then there was more "entertainment" (and more yawning from me).
Then they did they drawings for the big prizes: laptops, TVs, big $.
And they put all the names that had already won back in for the big prizes.
So, guess what happened?!
I won a flat-screen TV.Can you believe it?!
I know. Me either. I had to the give the $100 back, but who cares?! A flat screen vs. $100?
It must be the baby.
How else do you explain something like that? The "Rookie' at the firm wins. Although, Mike wonders if they were secretly bribing me to make sure I stay after the baby is born.
P.S. Do you like the Santa on the side of the screen → ? I think he's hilarious! A hillbilly Santa with red eyes and only 2 teeth?! Definitely made me laugh.
