So it’s been a good week. October came and I promptly made about a dozen loaves of pumpkin bread because it is written in the Book of Pin that once fall officially hits, you have to cease with the zucchini bread and transition immediately to pumpkin bread or you will surely have your badge of yuppy womanhood revoked.
Something else happened that I reaaaaaaaaaaly want to tell you about. It’s, like, kinda huge, y’all, but in the interest of the chickens that should not necessarily be counted prior to their hatchery, I am fighting off all urges to jinx myself by telling the Internet my good fortunes before they are finalized. If I have learned anything from having a kid, it is that the instant they do something cute or acquire a new skill, they will never ever do it again once you tell someone about it. But just know that once I’ve got the go-ahead and things are for sure happening, I will tell you all about The Very Big Thing to the extent that you are going to be like OH EM GEE WILL YOU JUST SHUT UP LADY?! and slam the virtual door on me. (It’s kind of quiet. It sounds like a butterfly farting.)
But I want to celebrate something today, so I am taking the occasion of the 201st like on The Waiting’s Facebook page to do a giveaway. That also happened this week, and I am still a little stunned that people actually like the says that I say here. (Sorry, I’ve been reading a lot of Dr. Seuss lately.)
So how should we celebrate? How about with the very first ever super deluxe The Waiting coffee mug?!
The only thing better than having C there with you in the flesh as you enjoy* your morning cuppa is having her grin at you from the silent confines of a coffee mug, where she is only pictured from the head up. Read: NO DIAPERS.
*And by “enjoy,” I mean having her there jumping off the sofa and nagging you to put on Elmo a kajillion times as she lobs dirty tennis balls onto your omelet that you had the audacity to believe you would enjoy.
To sweeten the deal, I’ll also be throwing in a pound of coffee for you to enjoy in your new cup. If you’re a tea drinker, I guess I could manage to accommodate you and your particularities as well.
Right now, I have got one gift set all packed with care and ready to ship to the lucky winner, but if I can get 25 new likes on The Waiting’s Facebook page from now until the giveaway ends on October 18th at midnight, I will give away a second gift set. Look at me, getting all generous. ARE YOU NOTICING THIS, UNIVERSE?
