Who Doesn't Love a Freebie

One thing I really like about blogging is all the giveaways people have. You know to celebrate 100 posts, or one year, or 1oo followers, or 100 days without bothering the elderly. You get the idea. I've even won a few myself. When I have a giveaway I always let my daughter pick names from a bowl. I don't trust that random number generator, you know it's operated by China.

So anyhow she started getting into having her own giveaways. She gave away a cupcake box, lip gloss, a sheet of stickers... Her friends got into the whole giveaway thing too and started a whole giveaway trend type thing at school. Fun , fun, and more fun.

I picked her up from school recently and she told me not to worry about supper, she had it covered. It was in her back pack. She won a giveaway from her friend Hannah. I asked some questions, she stalled me. Could the kid's lunch be in there? A frozen dinner, bag of Doritos?

She whipped it out when we got home. Her giveaway prize. A bag of uncooked spaghetti. She could not have been more thrilled. This is exactly as it arrived; open and partially used up then stored in a ziploc bag. WOW

If you were expecting a giveaway with this post sorry but there's a recession going on and I'm out of pasta.

I can donate pasta for your giveaway.

Jean Knee said...

okay but I only want Skinner brand.

Carrot Jello said...

Can I just write Skinner on the package?

Jean Knee said...

I guess since I'm giving it away that'd be okay

Jean Knee said...

It's always so much better to recieve an opened packet. It means that the giver has tried it out to make sure that it's okay for you to eat. More importantly, the fact that they are still around to donate it is a good sign.

Jean Knee said...

I suppose, but, I threw it away just in case

Jean Knee said...

You're in my chat room Brian, Let's chat.

Brian o vretanos said...

I did loads of stuff today. I think. But it's now past my bedtime, so I can't hang around to chat. Otherwise I might not get anything done tomorrow.

I wonder if somebody's mom is looking for the pasta for dinner tonight.

Oops.

Melissa said...

That is too funny! I wonder what my kids would take for a give-away?

Bee said...

I have my webcam hooked up and don't see nothin' in this here chat room.

Anyway, I would march right into the principal's office and ask her/him what kind of cheap giveaways are they running in that prison/school!

Jean Knee said...

she's at a new school now, NCS the old school was a prison fortress. Here they let me come in amd only yelled at me once for exiting my vehicle when I got out to help my elderly mother into the car.

so see, really not the same
