And The Winner Is...

My mom drives me crazy. I called her to find out who she chose to win the contest.

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.

Mom: ...

Me: Well, you have some time. Think about it and get back to me.


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.)


  1. lol! Sounds like my mom. When I was fifteen and my BFF stabbed me in the back and I cried...she took her side too. "Well, maybe she just didn't know that about you." Yeah...ok mom. :)

  2. YAY! Thank you, Heather's mom! And don't worry, if anyone threatens to beat you up, I have a black belt in a karate & will protect you. ;-)
