WINNING THE CONTEST
Once when I was in high school, I entered a contest to win free “glamour shots.” To my parents’ dismay, I won and went to collect my prize.
At the last minute on a whim, I took my two younger sisters with me to the local Fred Meyer. We let the photographers do our hair and makeup (even though my youngest sister was only 9) and then we looked over this pamphlet of ways you could appear in your pictures—reflections, blurred edges, smoky overlays.
We chose a giant brandy glass. Three girls, between the ages of 9-17, highly made-up, in the brandy glass.
We gave it to my dad for Father’s Day. Pretty sure that was one of his happiest moments.
A DIFFERENT CONTEST
To celebrate the release of W&T, I do NOT have anything to do with brandy glasses. I’m sorry! Instead, I’ve got a free paperback copy contest going on Goodreads. If you’re a free paperback type person, here’s the link to enter. I do love a freebie.
What’s your favorite thing you ever won in a contest?
