And I Didn't Think I was a Winner

I just want everyone in my 5th grade class at
Heyburn Elementary to know that I am a winner.
I know I didn't win the multiplication race
in Mr. Humphrey's class.
And I promise, I've moved on.
But today at approx. 7:40am,
I felt what it was like to be a champion.

I won , not 1, not 2, not 3

but FOUR tickets to the movies!!

My daughter handed me the phone and said they were looking for someone to do the Battle of Sexes contest on the radio. Okay, I'm game. The phone line will be busy anyway. Well, it rang. I was "ON AIR". It was my big moment in the sun and I did my family proud. I won it with: "What do you call a male ladybug?" Okay, that is SUCH a trick question, I don't even think it was fair to the poor MAN who was competing against me, but oh well. I'm going to the movies with 3 of my closest loved ones.

Wish 3 of you were here.

I'm just SO relieved they didn't ask me

"What radio station do you listen to?"

You would have heard 'deer in headlights'.


  1. How fun for you....go girl!!!

  2. Yay! I'll be there in about 7 hours. What should we see?

  3. Congratulations! I'll be there in 14-16 hours.... someday.

    I have won a few things on the radio. It must be in the genes!
    But I've also been the caller right before the designated number too many times to count. May you never have those genes. :)

  4. FUN STUFF! Love your new and improved mug too. :D I used to play radio call in games when I was in junior high! With a rotary phone!! :0 In the OLDEN DAYS don't ya know. ;)
    So what are you going to go see??

  5. The tickets are for "taken". It looks scary and intense. Why couldn't I pick my own movie! Maybe I will regift them. :D

  6. what fun!! congradulations on winning!!

  7. Congratulations!Much better than winning a multiplication race.

  8. wow...and there are so many great movies to see right now how will you pick...have fun

  9. well didn't read your comment don't think I would take my kids to see that, I really think you should be able to choose!

  10. You are the coolest mom ever! I don't think I'd have the guts to talk on the radio, I would get all Peter Brady and then I couldn't go out in public to watch the movie. I would take the mug as a consolation prize though, that's awesome!

    Have fun, you winner you!

  11. I have no idea what you call a male ladybug. What is the answer?
