I once went to a Chamber of Commerce event with my husband.
It was Jimmy Buffett themed.
Like most events like that,
They had a table of offerings from local business, donated to raffle.
It had all sorts of stuff.
Good stuff, like gift certificates, wine, even some jewelry.
Also crap stuff, like pool floaties, a radio flyer (we do not have children) and lots of tacky “Margaritaville” related things.
The later the night got,
Everyone started to wonder about the raffle.
I mean, they had to raffle off every item and there was a ton of stuff.
So, they ran their program too long and decided to just give all that ridiculous ■■■■ to one “lucky” winner.
The pulled a number and to my surprise, someone from my table won!
Then, to my horror, I realized it was my own husband.
We had to pack up all that crap, drag it to the car in the radio flyer, make several trips and not a single person helped us.
We got lots of “congratulations!” though.
Anyway, the only things we used were the cards, wine and eventually I tried to use the radio flyer to help move boxes back when we got a new place.
It made exactly two trips to the moving truck before two wheels popped off.
Thank god there wasn’t a toddler in it.
So, that’s one of the greater wins in my life,
