I am quite good at winning competitions. I enter whatever appeals and is easy – email and twitter competitions are great, and there are several in the local newspaper or some magazines that I enter as well. I certainly don’t win everything (or even close to it!) that I enter, but I suppose I enter enough of them that the prizes – usually small ones – come gratifyingly often.
The Dad often laughs and shakes his head when I tell him excitedly, “I won something on twitter today!”
I am passing the lucky gene on, too.
This morning Fainjin came looking for something to do. I was sewing for the school fair, and had my netbook next to me with my twitter feed on screen. Right at that moment, I saw this tweet:
We have 5 kids bags to give away. Tweet us a drawing of an elephant before 2pm today to be in to win! twitpic.com/b2o5w7

“How would you like to enter a competition?” I asked Fainjin. “You might win something! Or not, because it’s a competition and not everyone can win.”
“OK!” he said, and went off to draw an elephant. He drew a robot elephant which had just won a race.
And he was a winner! He was very proud of himself, and is looking forward to getting a parcel in the mail in the next few days.
The Dad laughed and shook his head.
