You know those stupid contests on Facebook, the ones you enter but never win? I won, I won, I won! And the story of how I won is pretty funny.
The contest was sponsored by Furniture Liquidators. All you had to do was enter who you thought the winner of the NCAA tournament would be. That was tough for me because I don’t know much about basketball. And I live in Kentucky so the Cardinals and UK were the first teams
that came to mind. But I didn’t want to ruin my chances.
So I did what I always do when I need an answer to a question. I Googled! I Googled, “Who will win the NCAA 2014?” A random
article popped up from some random guy. I skipped to the end of the article (because it was boring) and the dude said his prediction was that the University of Connecticut (UCONN) would win. That was good enough for me and that’s what I entered.
Well thank you random guy for writing the random article because I got an email today from Furniture Liquidators telling me I won a new recliner! I think next year I should try making one of those bracket
And as a side note, I never win anything. So next time you see one of those stupid Facebook contests, enter! You can’t win if you don’t play.
The kids were on spring break last week. For one of our adventures I took them to the Louisville Zoo. It was a beautiful day and we had a fantastic time. Later on when I was looking at the pictures it occurred
to me that it’s really silly to take pictures of zoo animals. Unless the animals are doing something funny or unusual they are just boring, common pictures of zoo animals.
I have piles upon piles of pictures I’ve taken over the years and as I attempt to put them in albums it just feels wrong to waste the space with a picture of an elephant or a tiger. Because after all, the elephant from the Louisville Zoo doesn’t look much different from the elephant
at the Milwaukee Zoo or the Ohio Zoo or the West Virginia Zoo for that matter.
A rule of thumb should be that there is a person in every zoo animal picture. That makes it okay, album worthy and something to really look back on. This allows you to see your children growing up over the
years but you probably won’t notice the Laughing Hyena or Otter’s growing up over the years.
But keep the zoo animals in the pictures because maybe someday there will be no zoo’s.
