In the history of all things Sunday School Rebel, there's never been a real, honest-to-God contest on the premises. That's because I started blogging way back when, before there was such a thing as blog contests, and I still tend to think of them as rather new-fangled inventions. However, I decided to jump in and join Swistle's Pay It Forward Extravaganza, because why not? It's not like I'm doing anything incredibly time-consuming or anything in the next couple weeks...oh wait. I am. I decided to participate as a way to have something to say besides oh woe is me with my many, many boxes to pack.
Check out Swistle's blog for the complete list of blogs participating. I think it's fun, because you can enter as many contests as you like, which why wouldn't you? Don't you like to consider winning cool stuff, whatever that cool stuff may be? It's a bit like the lottery, without having to go to the grungy gas station for your ticket. The only hitch is that IF you win, you are encouraged to pay it forward - you have to host your OWN Pay It Forward contest. If you don't have a blog, then we can host it here on my blog, so don't let that keep you from entering!
Another reason I agreed to do have my own Pay It Foward contest is to have a valid excuse (next week) to visit the lovely, shiny Target that is only minutes from our new apartment, when I actually MOVE to the new apartment. You know, a visit to Target can brighten ANY day, especially days in which you are in a new town with no friends and the only people you know are the ones that you are, lawfully or by blood, related to. Of course, my own particular prize package will be customized to the winner's taste as much as possible, with some local Mississippi flavor as well. Then I will have a splendid excuse to find my local post office and post the package to the winner. So see, if you enter my personal contest here, you are helping me adjust. You are doing a GOOD DEED. Think of all the karma, just piling up, by allowing me an excuse to go to a happy place, learn my way around the new town, and also giving me something to do besides unpack boxes.
So! All you have to do to be enter is leave a comment by Friday July 4th at 11:59 p.m., and if you don't know what to say, tell me, how many times have you moved in your life? Moving in the same town doesn't count, really, unless that's the only time(s) you've moved, and then of course it counts. I have moved six times, and by next week, I'll hit lucky number seven.
And for your parting shot, please giggle over the boxes Beaux picked up from his workplace (a hospital). I snort a little every single time I see them.
