Last night, I did a few things. First, I went to a holiday party at the MMAT Academy, which is where I take fitness class and hubs takes Tae Kwon Do. Then, I went to the movies for the first time in a long time. But I’ll get to the movie in my next post.
First, I want to talk about the party. The party was holiday party, coupled with a potluck, coupled with demonstrations by the students and instructors of the martial arts taught there. The demos lasted a bit too long, but the food was yummy. The party also had a fundraising raffle for the school. I wanted to donate some money, so I thought the raffle was a good way to do it. I had no intention of winning anything. I had $5 in my pocket, so I bought six tickets.
Three of those six tickets won. And what they won was the most random grouping of items ever.
Ticket one: Smencils
|Yes, they’re smelly pencils. I got watermelon and cinnamon.|
Ticket two: Semi-permanent eyelash extensions worth about $300
This was presented on a business card of the person who donated the gift. I never thought I needed anything like this, but I do now!
Ticket three: A fudge cake shaped like a coffee cup
|Yeah, I know. That’s about the cutest thing ever.|
|It tastes as good as it looks.|
On a side note, a little girl (about 6yrs old?) at the school came up to me and asked me for a dollar to buy a raffle ticket. I told her I had $5 and I already spent that $5 on raffle tickets.
She said: “You ONLY have $5?”
I said: “How much money do YOU have?”
She said: “Zero”
I said: “Well, it looks like I had $5 more than you.”
Oh, after I won the smelly pencils, she came up to me again and said, “I wish *I* had smelly pencils.”
Subtle. Real subtle.
