I'm a WINNER!
We went to Sean's command Christmas Party. It was fabulous. Down to the free babysitting! We all got raffle tickets and the prizes ranged from a big screen TV to Best Buy gift certificates. After a yummy buffet dinner (our table got picked first to line up), we waited for the big event of the raffle drawing. The prizes were being handed out but we had a great table with good company. Then things got exciting. The DJ asked for 8 volunteers to come up onto the dance floor. Me, being a sucker for the lime light, scooted up there. It was easy since our table was right next to the floor. They set out 8 chairs and had us sit down. Then we played "Scavenger Hunt." This was when the DJ would tell us an item to get (a hat, napkin, nickel, business card, etc.) and as we searched for each item, one chair was removed and the last person back without a chair was out. I had a lot of help from Sean and those who sat at our table. He would get the item and toss it my way so I could be back at my chair before everyone else. Sean's CO even cheered me on. There are rumors that I beat down a girl in heels, but I claim she got caught up in my elbows. Anyway, I totally won! The prize was unknown and gift wrapped so I got to unwrap it in front of everyone and there in my hands was a Playstation 3!!! Whooo-Hooo! I don't think I touched the ground the rest of the night, I was so giddy. After a few dances, Sean and I left early to check that bad boy out. Besides, we didn't need to wait for the rest of the prizes. Before we left, my actual raffle ticket was chosen for a $50 gift card. I declined (they wouldn 't have let me take it anyway). I was bombarded with several congratulators and many wanted me to pick their winning lottery numbers. For someone who craves attention, this was the perfect evening!
