Isn’t It Ironic… #MFRWAuthor 2018 Week 12

This week’s writing prompt is, My Contest Experiences…

The first time I won a contest that I remember was in my early teens, and this is really going to date me. I had stayed home from school “sick” and was watching a local talk show. During the show they always had a segment where you could call in, give them a number, they would spin a wheel, and you might win a prize. I actually won! I guessed the number 7 and the wheel landed on that number. I think I won about $70.

So instead of staying home, my mom took me to the TV station to get my prize money. We then went to the mall and I bought my first portable CD player (which was also my first CD player) and my first 5 CDs, one of which is still one of my favorite albums ever – Jagged Little Pill by Alanis Morisette. Yup, the year was 1995. Doesn’t that take you back?

What about you? Do you have an interesting prize winning or contest story? Let me know in the comments.
