Today I won a $500 gift certificate to Macy's! That's right: 5-0-0! Can you believe it! I never win anything from drawings. I used to always enter those drawings at the mall where you can win a new car, or wave-runner, or whatever is on display at the time. I, of course, always entered my mom, because I was too young. As far as I know, she never won anything, despite my valiant efforts.
So, I went into Macy's a few weeks ago to replace a plate The Frog managed to break, and I almost left feeling disappointed that they didn't have them in stock. However, I wanted to make a cheesecake for that weekend so I ended up buying a spring-form pan while I was there. There was some kind of promotion going on where if you donated $5 you get a $10 gift card (useable immediately) and the chance to enter a drawing. I thought, why not?
I will point out that I painstakingly thought about how I should fold my card before sliding it into the slot, and I give full credit to my immaculate craftsmanship.
Sadly, I have no recollection of what I, in the end, decided to do to it. But clearly, it worked. Now that I know that I am capable of freebees, I feel a renewed hope in probability- the one area of math I could never really grasp.
So does this mean my chances of winning again are slimmer now?
At any rate, I won. I'm a winner. Look at me!
So now only one question remains-
what should I get?
