20 Pounds of Mints

Wint-O-Green LifesaversA while ago, I participated in a little contest sponsored by the fine folks at Mint, and for some strange, cosmic reason, I was selected to be the recipient of 20 pounds of mints. I was trying to move, yet people still wanted to send me boxes. I’m not complaining, though; the mints came in the form of Wint-O-Green Life Savers.

heh heh… Sugar lasts forever with proper storage. I wonder how long it will take for you to get rid of them all with trick or treaters and a candy bowl at your desk.

Does this mean another ConCom contest is in order? You can start the trend of “re-prizing”.

Doob: I’m already behind on my contests; I need to come up with something for the latest book I reviewed.
