I'm a Winner! :)

This weekend I was listening to Showtune Saturday Night on Kosy 106.5.  As I listened and enjoyed my tunes I heard them announce a contest.  Here is the premise: listeners were asked to email Kosy with a poem explaining why we should win.  The contest?  The Bard Bus.  The prize? Two tickets to Shakespearean Festival shows, Gaslight and Julius Caesar.  I wrote the following poem: 

I ought to be sent on the bus
If I don't get a break I may cuss
I teach students all day
Now I must get away.
So please let me on without fuss.

I sent the poem in sometime after 11 PM.  I stayed awake until midnight listening for them to call my name.  No such luck.  I was sad. 

So, today, I received the following email (I am offering only the exciting parts):
"Dear Krystle,

YOU WON!!!  I am so sorry this email did not reach you Saturday night - - we had a server melt down and I was worried when I did not get a response so I checked my sent file and there it was, saved, but having not been sent."

Some details of the contest:

Get on Board the Bard Bus!

Showtunes Saturday Night and the KOSY Morning Show will be taking a group of lucky theatre fans to the Tony Award Winning Utah Shakespearean Festival on Saturday, October 25th!

Cost to do all this on your own:
At least $250.00 (more depending on gas prices!)

Anon, thou rapscallion knave! Tarry not, but get thee to the Bard Bus for a most excellent and entertaining time!

Cheers!
