Theres no friend ...
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...
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
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
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"
*** 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
I have a gift $50 voucher
she waits for me to produce the voucher
I hand it over....
golden beams of FREE light radiate off my voucher
as I hand it over to her
"ummm Miss I don't know how to tell you this
but this voucher you won of the radio is
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!!!
HAVE A VERY
MERRY N SAFE CHRISTMAS ALL!!
