Unlucky or lucky? You decide

Winning stuff on the radio has never been so anticlimactic
or such a let down before this week.

Not gonna lie, I win tons of stuff on the radio. It's all random, but who would pass up:
Dinner for 2 at Sweet Tomatoes
Monster Truck Rally tickets
4 tickets to a Grizzly hockey game
Concert tickets to some band I don't even like

You all know how competitive I am...
I just get a rush from hearing the dj announce that caller 10 will win "this and that"...
and then calling in just to win, regardless of the prize.
Sadly, out of all that crap I've won, I've never gone to pick any of it up.
It's usually not worth the drive to downtown Salt Lake.
Plus, I just like to win.
BUT THIS WEEK........ I struck gold! With............

HARRY POTTER tickets!!!!!!!!

These tickets weren't just any tickets- they were tickets to an exclusive showing!! The winner watched the 1st movie (of the 7th book) at 6 pm and then watched the brand new one right after, with a theatre to themselves and their friends.
I was freaking out on the phone (like you're supposed to),
and then the dj asked where I was from.
(Still freaking out): "PROVO!"
The dj kind of laughed and asked me if i realized that the movie theatre that I had just won tickets to was in good ol' Farmington, UT.


If I can't even drive to Salt Lake to pick up prizes, what makes anyone think I'm going to drive all the way out to Farmington to use my prize?!
(Sorry to all the Harry Potter die-hards that read this)

This made me conclude that I'm a lucky winner when it is something I don't really care about (ex: Monster truck rally tickets).  But when it's $50 at a junior high assembly or a free trip to Hawaii, I am the unluckiest winners of ALL TIME!!!

SOOOO... to all you unlucky ones out there! (I'm referring to the unlucky ones who don't even win crap on the radio)  Feel free to give me a call when you HAVE to win that new CD.  If I win and I don't want it, it's all yours ;)
Have a happy July 16th!
