Have you read The Lottery by Shirley Jackson?
Back in high school my peers and I were divided into groups so that we could do class presentations covering the frightening tale. One group decided to hold their own version of the story's lottery, only the "winner" was to be pelted with water balloons instead of stones. Our teacher put a stop to it after the first balloon was tossed. Luckily, the classmate was a poor shot and only my pant leg got wet. Yes, I drew the black dot. Thankfully, my luck has improved since then.
Now I want to hold a lottery of my own. One with a happy ending. One where the winner gets a personalized copy of Create Jewelry: Stones:
AND a spool of Soft Flex Metallics Copper Color wire. How lucky is that?!
Want to win? All you have to do is leave your name in a comment on my blog sometime (or many times) between now and noon (mountain time) October 31st. I'll collect all the names and draw a winner and someone will get a Halloween treat!
Do you feel lucky?
