My mom called me a couple days ago and told me about a promotion for Man’s Best Friend on WBAP 820.
“All you have to do is write a 25-word essay on why your dog needs training,” she said. “If you’re selected, you can win $1,500 worth of training for Gus.”
She had a tone in her voice like this was an order or plea … not just a loving suggestion.
As she was trying to sell me on the promotion – “You can do it!” – Augustus was treating my crotch like scratch-and-sniff sticker. Needless to say, I decided to do it.
Here is what I submitted (remember, it only asked for 25 words – which is tough):
Staying at friend’s condo in East Vail.
Used credit card points for 1-day pass
Used credit card points to rent skis and boots as well
Not planning ahead will kill you at lunchtime on top of the mountain. The budget took a big hit around noon on Wednesday.
– Really had to rely on Director of Giving to monitor sites on Wednesday. I was still receiving e-mail notifications on my Blackberry, but there was NOTHING
– Utilized wireless internet to check out everything out once we got back to the condo.
