"It's a major award!"
If you know me very well, you will know that I love to quote movie lines. My husband and I could practically have an entire conversation just trading our favorite lines. We often crack each other up with a movie line inserted into a stressful situation.
Every time anyone in our family wins anything, we all yell, "It's a major award." You may recognize that line from "A Christmas Story."
About a week ago, I noticed that a local store was having a Mother's Day photo contest. I stopped by to get the rules and when I asked a few questions, the employee said, 'Well, I'm not sure because we haven't gotten any entries."
I looked at her shrewdly and stated the obvious, "So, I have an excellent chance of winning then."
I walked away smirking and returned a day later with my entry.
And I won!
Of course, I was the ONLY entry as far as I know. Baahahahahahahahaha Hey...before you laugh at me, I'll have you know that I now have a $20 gift card for Applebees in my possession, as my 'major award.'
As I left to pick up my prize, Taylor asked me if I was going to come home with a leg lamp. I've trained him well...
And here is my (cough) winning entry--although it was in brown sepia, rather than black and white:
