This competition update very nearly begun like every other competition update since I started my competition-a-day quest.
A paragraph about the superhuman, year long effort, an overview of competitions entered, some wondering about how I can say ‘I just had a baby’ in 25 words or less in a way that appeals to the makers of swimsuits or baked beans, or crockpot companies.
Maybe even the purchase of a product promising entry into a holiday draw only to find said draw was already over.
Brother Liam and Now Sister in Law From Sweden Josephine got engaged and universe saw fit to celebrate.
Yes, the universe!
And the good folk at The Bridge Hotel, where
WE WON THE MEAT RAFFLE.
I didn’t have a ticket, I was too late for tickets, but I was there and it was everything I’d hoped it might be.
Hearts and fists pumped with victory!
There was a whole platter filled with kangaroo sausage and hunks of steak! There were rissoles! There was a perplexed Swedish person saying, ‘I don’t really understand the significance, can’t you just buy meat at a supermarket?’.
Buy meat at a supermarket!?!!
I’ll never buy meat again*! I’ll exist solely on a diet of raffle tickets! And air!!
*I’ll probably buy meat again.
