AN EMBARESSING XMAS STORY THAT HAPPENED TO ONE OF MY FRIENDS...


Okay ....
Theres no friend ...
***sigh***
It was me! LOL

Well, for two weeks I have been trying to win a radio comp 
worth a $1000. 

I shoulda won it by now being 
I have tried ringing like 50 000000000 times 
 the competition is to listen and identify in order
the 12 famous peoples voices. 

It is called...
THE 12 Days DAVE's OF CHRISTMAS...
 Being that all the voices are Famous Davids....

Dave's happens to be my expertise
I have lived with one for 20+ years
sadly he wasnt on the list and  yep
... nope... 
no luck
that's right 
if there had been any luck..... I would have let the world know!!!

Anyway I have played each morning devotedly, 
sitting  next to the radio poised
( no bladder control comments here folks! ) 
finger over the redial button !!!

Even though I have  given everyone else half the answers 
I was still thrilled for a box of chocolates and a $50 gift voucher .... 

Mr Connor Casanova ( 10 no less!) took the chockies for his "girlfriend"
and then  ...ten minutes after I won the Priceline voucher my hair dryer blew up!! 
A bang, smoke N all so .... 
voucher = new hair dryer right?

Then I had the brain wave ...
I could use Daniels hairdryer and not buy myself one 
& save money on xmas presents!!! 

I'd use  my voucher to buy my favourite "pretend" sister in law 
and her two daughters a really lovely gift.

Sounds like a great idea eh? 
A beauty gift Box for a fun girls night in with her gorgeous girls! 
Manicure set,  hair treatments, aromatherapy facial packs, 
body lotions, scented candles, even the cutest wee little glitter toe 
spaces for a pedicure and foot balm. 

I wandered aimlessly around thinking I'll chuck $20 worth in just to spice it right up
and I might even get a invite to hang with the "sisterhood" 
as a mother with three boys and no local sisters I ***sob*** have none!
That would be awesome 

I could pretend to be a girl...
drink champagne and paint toe nails! 

So I shopped even a little harder 
after all $ 50 dollars worth was FREE 
wondrously  FREE!!

Got to the check out and looked at the trolley and thought .....
hmmmm may have over done it a smidge.
I can barely see the checkout chicks face over the pile of pretty pink sparkly girlishness...

"Bleep bleep bleep"... she whizzes it all through... 

I may have overdone it, slightly. 
I do a last minute paniced mental calculation 
as to what is in the bank  before my cards declined!!! 

OMG that surely would be  
the greatest embarrassment to ring up 
a mountain of stuff and then... have your card declined due to lack of funds!

Especially as half the staff have helped me find stuff and ponder over products!
They've all watched me traipse  backwards and forward admiring my dedication 
to my lovely thoughtful "grand plan"

.= $120.00 
*** mass panic...mild hysteria *** 

oh breathe I'll  just bring a couple things back at a later date..
It'll be find ....actually $70 for three people is quite reasonable !
 
 I joke to her about how My Dave doesn't need to know 
the WHOLE story...secret women's business 
RIGHT? LOL

AND BESIDES...
 I have a gift $50 voucher 
she waits for me to produce the voucher 
I hand it over....

 alleluia.  alleluia.....
golden beams of FREE light radiate off my voucher 
as I hand it over to her  
and then...
she says...

"ummm Miss I don't know how to tell you this 
but this voucher you won of the radio is 
for
PRICE ATTACK ...we're PRCELINE.

Oh ffff....PRICELESS I think! 
There is something more embarrassing 
than having your card declined ...

She goes on to say...
"If you like I could you like me to take a few things off 
make the total a bit ....smaller...maybe?"
 
so that's what I did ...
when really I just wanted the ground to open up 
and swallow me!!!
 LMAO!

HAVE A VERY
MERRY N SAFE CHRISTMAS ALL!!

:)
