The Big Winner

For about the last year-and-a-half it has been my goal to win a free lunch. I made this decision after I received 1,000 business cards in the mail and quickly realized I don't need 1,000 business cards . . . frankly, I don't need 10 business cards. Since, getting them, I have tried to distribute them in random situations, all of which have come across incredibly forced and very akward ("Anyway, Mr. Newman, we should have your car fixed by tomorrow. We'll call you when we know the exact time". . . "Ok, great. Here's my card, my number is right on there". . . "Umm, we already have your number on file, remember we called you earlier" . . . "Oh, right. Well I'll just leave this here anyway incase your computers go down" . . . "Uh, ok, I guess" - smooth)

So, seeing as how nobody wants or needs my business card I have started using them solely to enter those "Win Free Lunch" contests at restaurants where you drop your card into a fish bowl. Well, I had yet to win any of these contests until yesterday. That's right, you are reading the blog of the June Free Lunch Winner at Houlihan's! Go ahead, go into the Houlihan's in Mercer Mall and you will see my business card on display. Not only did I win a free lunch but millions of people (estimate) will see my card. Sure, these people will no doubt think, "What loser enters these things?" The answer - This loser, or should I say WINNER!

Anywho, I am off to order my caviar covered lobster, which I am sure they serve.
