Wife has been waiting weeks for this day. She said she wanted to be the 100th follower on my blog, so the last couple of days I’ve been carefully watching and waiting for that magical moment when there were 99 followers, and I could call her and say “Wife, get on the computer right now or you’ll miss it” in an overly annoyed demand.
And today was that day! Hooray!!!
I’ve been thinking long and hard about what I wanted to do to celebrate this milestone. Tradition is that a blogger does some kind of giveaway. But I wanted mine to be special. I wanted mine to be unique.
And there is only one way.
You know what it is… I know you do.
Yes. Yes this is actually happening.
For my 100 Follwer giveaway, I’m giving away The Little Thumper
. I would never in a trillion years have ever guessed that I would one day write a blog that got 100 followers and that to celebrate that achievement I would put a vibrator in the mail and send it to somebody.
Yet, here I am, in a picture, holding a vibrator, and here I am in text saying the words “if you comment on this post, you very well might win this blue vibrator called the Little Thumper.”
I’m gonna miss you, Little Thumper. You were a good friend. And I mean that in the I’ve-never-opened-you sense.
To sweeten the deal, I’ll also throw in this:*
A $25.00 Cheescake Factory Gift Card
(If you win and don’t live near a Cheescake factory, equivalent arrangements will be made.)
Will I do a point system?

Or you may decide to receive The Little Thumper and sell The Little Thumper on eBay. If you end up rejecting The Little Thumper, it will go to the next random number chosen until a home for The Little Thumper is found. I wonder how many more times I can say The Little Thumper? The Little Thumper The Littel Thumper yeah this is boring and I keep making typos so the answer was two and I’m done. Bye now.)
