Last week I enetered a contest over at Steve in a Speedo?! Gross! for a Road ID. I rarely enter giveaways but thought that leaving a comment for 1 entry was feesible. What's that lotto saying? You gotta play to win? (sidenote: I'm sure it's "You have to play to win," but being from Texas I think "gotta" is more authentic)
You could do a few more things to get extra entries, but the comment thing was easy and one entry was enough for me. This morning I noticed he announced the winners. As I scrolled through the blog I saw that he gave a few readers extra entries for leaving a good comment. What a shock to see that I was one of the four he gave an extra entry to!
Yes, Steve is funny and I do enjoy his blog, but when he mentions his wife I always read a bit more carefully. She is super sporty too. He recently had a post dedicated to his wife Pharmie's love of the Enell sports bra, which is what prompted me to go out there and find a new one of my own. That post is hilarious and will give you a great glimpse of Steve's sense of humor and excellent writing, so check it out! (omg, my other favorite is when Steve got glitter stuck in his peesh. I died. I'm laughing again just thinking about it)
Anyway, I didn't win. But the shout out was a prize in itself. I thought about ordering my own Road ID, but felt like I could better spend that $20 on something more...like clothes, or going to watch Valentine's Day.
