I forgot about the What The Heck? A Janie Girl Contest!
Yup, that one.
Where there were weird thingies on this green fence of a significantly popular drive-through.
And said weird thingies were exactly one. car. length. apart.
And whomsoever puts said thingies on the green fence are (1) pretty accurate and (2) keep a pretty good arsenal.
First place prize goes to : TexWisGirl at the Run-A-Round Ranch
Second place: Connie at Hartwood Roses
Third place: Betty at Bossy Betty
Fourth place: KaLynn (MiMi) of both KaLynn Blog and Mimi's Musings (yup, the girl's a multitasking, two-blog woman!)
Fifth place: Nancy at A Rural Journal
So! Y’all let me know your favorite store, because you’re getting gift certificates from there.
Oh, yeah...and the correct answer?
At the drive-in line at our local STARBUCKS. Oh, yeah. Exactly one car length apart.
Now think about this. Some kid (or kids) sitting in the back seat of his parents’ car, amassing over time some serious pieces of paper, wadded up just so, small enough to fit into a straw, which he/she happened to have handy in that back seat, to be able to decorate a fence with spitwads, whenever said parent had a cravin’ for Starbucks.
How many repetitive days?
What was the parent doing? Not paying attention to what their kid was doing?
Never looking in the back seat at the source of the ammunition?
All sorts of scenarios come to mind, but I’m not going to go there.
By the way...after the original post, Starbucks cleaned the fence.
Oh, yeah - and Rob-Bear? You of Bears Noting? You get a giftcard, too, for reminding me that I’d not yet posted the winners to the contest! Thanks so much!
