If Kisses Were Wises
I worked on an essay contest for about an hour today sponsored by Hershey Kisses. You had to write an essay of 150 words or less and the essay will be judged on 40% Originality/Creativity, 40% Relevance to theme and 20% how well idea is articulated. I wrote it and edited and edited and finally I was happy with the results. When I went to submit my essay I realized that not all essays would be judged. You see they would be RANDOMLY selecting only three per week, for a prize of a $2,300 Visa Gift Card. So after all that work, my essay may not even see the light of day.
Today was a great day at work because it was birthday cake day. Once a month they buy a sheet cake to celebrate the birthdays for the month. Each month a delicious new flavor. Today's cake was a marble cake with a chocolate icing that tasted like chocolate Cool Whip.
We finished up our first disk of Dallas. Darryl said he didn't realize that Dallas had been on so many seasons. At this rate he said, it would take us almost a year to watch all the shows.
