And the Winner is......

....I'll never know!!!! Because MB blew his nose loudly at the EXACT MOMENT the radio station was announcing the name of the person to call in and win. And there was only ONE chance to hear the name. I was at the ready - ear near the radio and then bfffffftssstttttffffffppppppppp MB blew his nose LOUDLY (one of those old man nose blows)....

I'll admit that I'm a sucker for the occasional radio contest. This particular one, sponsored by a local radio station, asked listeners to register online and then listen for their name to be called 4 times a day. I was scheduling my errands around those 4 times a day so that I would be near a radio at that time (since I'm crazy insane like that) - since listeners only had 30 minutes to call a special line after their name was called.

All winners (who called in) won a gift certificate and were also put in a drawing for $4,000 diamond earrings from a local jeweler. Now I'll never know what it may have been like to wear these babies...


Is the loud obnoxious Man Nose Blow really that more effective than a dainty Lady one???

Leave it to a man to ruin things for the lady!

Diamond earrings would be quite the win! I'll keep my fingers crossed that a troll doesn't pass your way sometime today and fart over the name annoucement.

It was so you!!

Christina said...

So I guess that means MB needs to make sure there are some sparkly twins wrapped up with a bow just for you this holiday season.

uuuuggghhh! i HATE HATE those blows.. they disgusts me.. and hubby will do it just to piss me off when im eating... DISGUSTING!!!!

Maureen said...

That's annoying... but also kinda funny.

At least he didn't do the nasty throat clearing thing my boyfriend does ALL THE TIME. It still makes his sister gag.

Keep listening. There's always a chance.

Alicia said...

McVal said...

Call the radio station and find out if it was you! Darn men and their noses!!!

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Yuck. Sorry you missed the name. Santa is still coming maybe he'll bring you some.

I'm not pointing any fingers or anything...but *SOMEONE* clearly owes you some bling.

My hubby blows his nose and sneezes so loud that if we are in public it literally scares people! Crazy!

Amanda said...

If I lost a pair of diamond earrings because of a nose blow that man would NEVER live it down :)

Lucy said...

Wow, so your contest obsession is not limited to the Internet (LOL) you are too funny!!!

My husband does that every single night (blows his nose loudly..) It's his nightly ritual: shower, putter around in the bathroom, fluff his pillows (no joke) and then blow his nose as loudly as humanly possible. I roll my eyes every time.

Laura said...

Don't worry it wasn't you that time, but it will be soon, I can feel it. Or maybe that's the effects of the nose blowing...just kidding! Maybe he owes you those for ruining your chances, hmmm?? :)

Aleta said...

UGH, MEN!!!! Greg isn't a big nose blower, but... he SNEEZES REALLY LOUD!! I mean - it's loud to the point of being obnoxious! He says, "What?! It's good to let it out - like having a lung orgasm." Only a man would think like that!

alessandra said...

Who cares about diamonds? ;-)

blueviolet said...

I swear men blow their nose using force from the bottom of their chest. It's a trumpeting volcano!

Anti-Supermom said...

Darn him!

I'm pretty sure someone would have called if they heard you had won - and they know how you are crazy for these contest.

And I mean *crazy* ;)

Kate said...

Ha ha love it. Bet he is moaning about having a man cold too.

Joy said...

Maybe you should've called...just in case????

Aaaahhh that's going to bug me now too!

Cristina said...

You know what? He has to get you earrings. Period. Even if they are certified pre-owned, swarovski crystal, eternagold post earrings i.e. the fakest things going because that's all we can really afford.

I'll get them for you!

I used to call into radio contests all the time!!! I got in trouble at work for it once when I was much younger (I'm more subtle about it now).
One time I won a trip for four to the zoo and was one of ten people who were in a bigger contest for the chance to win a 4-carat diamond (or maybe it was 2...). So they pulled us all onstage at the zoo and we're all told to select a paperbag. Inside the bag is sand and a big rock-and one of the big rocks was the diamond. Walked away with nothin but a bag of rocks....

Hello!! My husband does that with the remote. I'll be ready to hear something and he changes the channel. Even channel surfing, I have to let them finish a sentence.

Oh how frustrating. Maybe he bought them for you and didn't want to ruin Christmas by the radio station "upping" his gift.
