Mom: Guess what I won?
Shauna: Won? Wow! The lottery?
Mom (laughs): No. I won a new Sizzix [die-cuts for the die-hard scrapbooker]. In a cool font [she says because I know she already has a handful of cool Sizzix already].
Shauna: Where’d you win it?
Now, lest I misunderstand, eBay doesn’t sponsor contests, right? So I said as much to my mother, clarifying that she did indeed PAY for this cool “prize.”
Mom: Well, yeh. It’s $42 with shipping and handling, but I got it and no one else did!
This is the second time my mother has won something on eBay, and I’m going to have to listen closely the next time she talks about QVC, because I’m pretty sure she’s won stuff there too.
