When it comes to luck…..I have only won one thing in my life. When I was in elementary school I put my name in a contest to win a 100 pound chocolate egg from a local chocolate store. It was a big Easter promotion for the chocolate shop in order to entice young kids into their store after seeing the 100 pound chocolate egg sitting in their store window. I went to the store every day and entered my name into the contest (all the while purchasing other chocolate treats for myself of course). I was distraught when I found out that I was going to be out of town with my family on the day of the draw. One of the contest stipulations was that you HAD to be present during the draw…..at the time I thought it was a silly rule…..but now, after putting on my marketing hat, I totally understand why the store had that stipulation
I am sure you can expect where I am headed with this…..I DID win the contest but I wasn’t there to claim the prize. I was devastated to hear the news upon returning from my family vacation. BUT, now that I am older and wiser I am so happy that I in fact didn’t win the 100 pound chocolate egg….imagine the sugar rush I would have had…..all the pimples I probably would have gotten….and I probably would have gained about 100 pounds from eating all that chocolate.
From this experience I learned two things…..first off, persistence pays off and secondly NO child needs a 100 pound chocolate egg!!!!
