Mom: They're all good. I don't know who to pick.
Me: Anyone you want.
Mom: But THEY'RE ALL GOOD. (She tells me the merits of who-its and whats-its).
Me: (not really listening)... Yeah, exactly. So who's the winner?
Mom: You would pick XXX, wouldn't you? Or what about XXX, you'd pick them!
Me: It doesn't matter who I'd pick. YOU have to pick.
Mom: I like them all. I'm not a writer. How would I choose?
Me: I asked you to pick because you're not a writer. That way everyone would have a fair chance. You're a mom. Mom's like everything.
Me: Well, you have some time. Think about it and get back to me.
FIVE PHONE CALLS LATER:
Me: (looking at caller ID before hitting 'talk') OMG! Just pick a winner already!
Mom: What if they hate me?!
Me: Who cares? They don't know you! What are they going to do, track down 'Heather's mom' and beat you up?
Mom: I don't like to hurt anyone's feelings.
Me: (*eye roll*) It's a contest. You have to pick a winner.
Mom: This is too much responsibility. I don't want to do this for you again.
Me: Believe me, I won't ask. I've learned my lesson.
The winner is... Dawn! Yay, Dawn! It only took me three hours to find out that you're the winner. :) Congratulations!
Here's a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who entered! I had a fun time reading your cheater reports! They all made me laugh.
(Dawn, I sent you an email.)
