So... got teenagers?
I do. :-) And it is a
pain JOY everyday.
Really. I do!
Me: Wanna help me select a winner at random?
Me: I'm giving a book away on my blog. Do you want to help me select a winner at random?
Me: I interviewed Sara J. Henry and she's giving away a copy of her awesome book LEARNING TO SWIM. I get to pick the winner. Do you want to help me select a winner at random?
Teenager: %-P *crosses eyes and sticks out tongue*
Me: Nevermind. I can do it by myself.
Teenager: No! I want to help. What do we need to do?
Me: Select a winner at random.
Me: Oh. My. Gosh. I thought a teenager could come up with a fun creative way, so I could post a fun interesting story on the blog. NOPE! Clearly not going to happen.
Teenager: Assign them all a number.
Me: Okay. Done.
Teenager: Pick a number, any number.
Me: The point was for YOU to pick a winner, not me.
Teenager: I will. Trust me. Just pick a number. Don't tell me what it is, just think it.
Teenager: Now, add seven to it.
Teeanger: Times it by two.
Teenager: Minus eleven
Teenager: :-) That's the winner.
So...after all the teenage
drama FUN - we have a winner!
Please email me your shipping address (my email is on the right sidebar), and I will forward your address to Sara, and she will send you a copy of LEARNING TO SWIM.
If you didn't win - don't worry - you can order your copy on AMAZON!
And a big thanks to everyone for stopping by and commenting!
we will resume some
sort of regular OUT OF THIS WORLD writing posts.
Lol that was a fun way to pick a winner.ReplyDelete
That was fun! Congrats to the winner!ReplyDelete
I think your teenager devised the PERFECT way to pick a winner! YAY for me!! =) Looking forward to reading it. Thanks Margo & Sara!ReplyDelete
Good thing you didn't go over the number of the highest entry! If you were a wisecracker like me you would have thought of the square root of two, since your teenager said 'any number', which would have made the selection even harder.ReplyDelete
Oh Margo I think that is a brilliant way to pick a winner. I know at first it seemed like a crazy idea, but your teenager has it right on...Fabulous!ReplyDelete
Congrats to Shelby!ReplyDelete
Looking forward to getting my copy later this month!
Thanks for running the contest, Margo.
