My Major Award

Other than a few walks with Rhett and the dog, the first time I left the house was last Thursday night. That's 13 days inside my apartment...my very small apartment. So the place I chose to go first? Kmart. Even though I usually eschew Kmart, it was close and easy. Besides, they had these v-neck tees on sale for $5. I left the babe with Chuck and off I went.

As I headed for the Women's department an announcement was being made on the loud speakers. It was telling everyone to make their way to the Women's department so that they could enter the drawing for a fabulous (!) prize. Seeing as I was already headed in that direction, I slyly looked for where this drawing was going to take place. Finding the platform was easy, but I still wasn't sure what the drawing was for. However, something inside me told me I was going to win.

Turns out that it was basically QVC-in-person. A girl was trying to sell me (and about 15 others) a set of gold necklaces and bracelets that retail for over $129 (!) for ONLY $29.99 (!). They were hideous. Sorry lady, but they were. At the end of her spiel, we were told that due to the great price, only four sets were available at this unbelievable price. The way to sell them fairly? The first four people who raise their hands...and GO. But no one raised their hands. No worries, we could think about it and come find her later. Then on to the drawing.

When I got home, I joked with Chuck that the only times I have really felt promptings from the Holy Ghost were just before I was about to
win something. While this is sadly partially true, this time was no different. I just knew I was going to win. And win I did! Behold my major award! I'm sure I'll never wear it again.

i was secretly hoping for a leg lamp in a fishnet stocking, you know a "major reward"...however, i have to say the shiney bling comes in a close second.

it still freaks me out how you win so many of these freaky things.

my favorite moment however, was that NO ONE raised their hands. I am still giggling.
