I’m a winner and you’re not | Fetch My Flying Monkeys
Everyone needs a fleet of flying monkeys to rip the stuffing out of the annoying people in their lives
— Laura

If you live anywhere near me, I am sure you have probably already heard about this through the local news media, but for my readers in other states and countries, I guess I should share the news. I won a contest.


Let me say that it really is true that when you win one of these, you really do get friends showing up that you didn’t know you had. Everyone wants to share in a bit of your good fortune. I don’t begrudge them. I am sure, if the circumstances were reversed, I would do the same.


My winnings are not enough for me to retire on or change my life all that much. I am not quite what you would call rich as a result of this. Let’s just say I’ll not have to worry about where my next meal is coming from for a long time, and leave it at that. It has been a learning experience though about how people treat others who come into a bit of good luck. I picked up my prize at lunchtime. The people at work who knew I had won were waiting for me when I returned. All of them wanted to be my best friend.


I probably ought to put my winnings in a safety deposit box or something but I wanted to get a picture for my blog friends to see before I squirreled them away for safe-keeping. Just in case some criminal element reads this blog and has any thought of tracking me down, I am armed and I am a marksman. Just saying. Besides, by the time you see this, these will be safely in a vault somewhere.


 



Winnings


That’s right. Five $5.00 Burger King cards that I won through a local radio station contest. And I photoshopped out the card number. Bam! In your face!

    Girl, you are soo crazy! No one wants to take your “BURGER KING” cards. Besides, I know that we can enjoy the food when I get back to work.

  2. Laura says:

    Dream on Tracy, dream on. I saw you eyeing them when I came back this afternoon. I almost called security.

  3. Fencepost says:

    I’ll use $20.00 worth of fuel driving down there, if you’ll take me out to lunch. tee hee
    Not!
    Congratulations on the win! Now lock ‘em up before you get mugged.

  4. Don’t spend it all in one place!

  5. Laura says:

    Fencepost- I think they’re secure now. And I think we’ll eat at some place better than BK if you ever made it down here.
    Buckskin- I have to. Unfortunately the Lexus dealer wouldn’t accept them : (

  6. Jennifer says:

    Word on the street is you’ll take a friend to lunch one day. PICK ME! PICK ME!!

  7. Just for fun, take them to Wendy’s and see what happens!
    Congrats on your good fortune! ;)

  8. Don’t you know that that freaky child molester-looking king thing is going to show up in your bed, asking you to do things to his “crown”.
    I would throw them out before it happens or go in and order several of the lowest price items on the menu just to annoy them. Yeah, that is what I would do. That would teach them to adopt that feaky pederast-looking slimy no good scary-assed mascot.
    Ewww… I get the willies just thinking about it, and not the good kind of willies. I will get that all next week. LOL! I turned your comment section into a Pr0n story. WOOHOO! Go ME!

  9. Sorry, I forgot to say congrats.
    But now I have a wonder. What the F*ck did you do for $25? I only charge $10. Except for family member’s cute boyfriends, and then I will do it for free.

    That’s a whole lot of flame broiled goodness, Laura.
    Whoppers are awesome hangover food.
