My Surprise

I am not pregnant.
That's for all you
who may have read
a comment to my post yesterday
and began to wonder.
Just had to dispel any thoughts in that area.
Don't tell me you didn't think about it.
Thanks a lot, friend.
So that is not my surprise.

This is my surprise.
I won!
Just a little contest
sponsored by our chamber of commerce.
It involved no talent.
Just running around town collecting stamps,
I meant to say stickers
(that was for my daughter's benefit).

I got second.
7 little certificate things.
Over $150 worth.
Two of which I will likely never use.
But still.
I won!
A happy little surprise.

Do I spend them on me?
Or others for Christmas?

Congrats! My mom and I were sure one of us was going to win. We never do that and we got all of them! Glad it was you (if it couldn't be me :)
