I finally got all the names into a box, yesterday, and had Eileen reach in, stir the contents and pull out a slip of paper with the name of the winner of the Chicken Soup for the Soul, book.
As she pulled out the slip of paper she looked at me and said, "This doesn't have a name on it."
"Of course, it does. I wrote names on all the slips," said I, reaching for the slip of paper.
"No, this just says Ancient One, but it doesn't have a name."
"Well, Ancient One is a name. It's the name Ann uses on her blog. Some people use different handles, instead of their real names," I explained.
Eileen is not into computers.
"How come you don't use a handle?" she asked.
"I don't know. I just never thought of using one. I wouldn't know what to use. Let's just forget about it."
"Well, you could call yourself, Hungarian Paprikash," Eileen continued.
"I could, but I won't," I said, grabbing the slip of paper from her hand, and ending the discussion. She may be my best bud, but she can be annoying at times. :-)
So, this was a long way of getting to the point: Congratulations Ancient One , you are the winner of the Chicken Soup book. I hope you enjoy it. Please email me your postal address, and it will be on the way to you.
I do wish I had more copies of this book, so everyone could receive one. You are all such wonderful blogging friends. Thank you for that.
Have a wonderful week!
