Imagine receiving a batch of Ruth’s, Lauren’s, Ruth & Lauren’s (my mother! my sister! my mother! my sister!) amazingly decadent triple chocolate brownies in the mail. Would that be the best thing you ever received by post? Or what if you won Lauren’s ducky contest and got an enormous ceramic coffee cup filled with chocolate and books? Would that top the list of best things delivered?
For challenge number six, tell me the best thing you ever received in the mail (and I’m talking snail mail, people): be it an acceptance letter, a giant stuffed elephant sent from a particularly Republican boyfriend, a renewed passport days before your trip to China, whatever, just send me the details. You know the drill–send the answer to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive one lottery ticket for the May 3rd drawing.
Alternate challenge: If nothing has ever come for you in the mail besides bills and junk, don’t despair. There’s another way to win a ticket. Simply recommend my book to someone. Email me the name of the person you recommended it to, and you will receive another ticket. And if you want to take both challenge options, that’s cool, too. I’ll give you two tickets.
