one time, i entered a coloring contest, and i didn't win. unfun.
one time, i entered a raffle for a charity and i won an XXL-sized t-shirt for a sports team i didn't know anything about. it was too big and too stupid and i gave it away. unfantastic.
one time, i entered a giveaway on some person's blog whose name i won't mention because i'm not a rude rudy. the giveaway was for a pair of sunglasses and i needed sunglasses at the time so i thought "well, i don't usually win these things, but i need sunglasses so i might as well try."
so i tried.
and i won.
i was so happy.
and every day thereafter i checked my mailbox maybe twice or thrice a day, and every day i was colossally dissapointed. it never came. unfair.
i still check some days, but i'm not very dissapointed because i'm not expecting anything anymore.
the point is not that.
the point is: it is a sad thing to not win a prize. it is a sadder thing to win a prize but never have it.
well. i am here today to present you with the opportunity to win a prize. it is a good and nice prize, and if you win it, you shall also have it.
PLUS, in the event that you don't win it, you can still have something else for free! how does that grab you?
i hope it grabs you very well.
