You're a winner!

Your dreams have just been answered!

How on earth do I know what your dreams are? Well, I'm a mommy blogger myself, and it's not that hard to guess.

Hello. My name is Painted Maypole, and I am a representative of the mommy blogger's international lotto. I am pleased to inform you that you have just won an all expense paid European spa vacation for yourself and your partner - estimated retail value $20,000. On site child care will also be provided - and rest assured that your kiddos will be well taken care. All you need to do to claim this valuable vacation is to place a small deposit into a Swiss bank account. This will hold your prize until you are able to claim it. Once you enjoy your vacation your deposit will be returned.

Do not hesitate to respond immediately with your bank account information so that we may transfer the low, low deposit of $30,000. This offer is only good for 48 hours, and you certainly don't want to miss your opportunity for a child free vacation.

From one mom to another... you deserve it!

This lotto is sponsored by Monday's Mission. This week's Mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write a post in the style of a "congratulations you've just won!" e-mail or letter. If you write a post in this style please place your link in the widget below:


Join us next week when your Mission will be to write a post in the style of CD liner notes.

Also, I am declaring December a nostalgic month. Let me know what your favorite past mission was (one you want to try again, or one you missed and wish you had done) and I'll resurrect a month's worth of past missions. You can browse through all my past missions here.

Oh, I like the crooked twist you put on your congratulatory letter!

Why Painted Maypole, you wouldn't try to scam an old friend, would you?

Wups -- I wrote a 'thank you' letter. Some days I just don't read too well.

Kat said...

Hehehe. You're funny. :)

another good thing said...

so much nicer than the African and Chinese spam I get everyday. BTW, I heard an interesting NPR interview on the guys that track down those scammers, downloaded from i-tunes for free.

I'd accept, but my last transfer to a Swiss bank account didn't go so well...

E said...

Mondays at your place are even on my calendar.
And I too accept. I can just feel those hot rocks and the maple Scrub right about now....

Beck said...

Yeah, you know, even with the scammy Swiss bank account part, it STILL sounds like a good deal. It's just been that kind of a week.

Jennifer said...

I'm in. My bank account information will be on its way shortly. (And, uh, good luck getting anything out of it. If you manage to squeeze something out, let me know how it was done! *grin*)

ewe are here said...

My favorite Monday Mission was the children's story one, but that's because it's the only one I ever participated in. I just not together enough. I do think it would be fun to do "Letter to Santa" post though.

jen said...

Kyla said...

You almost had me. If only I had $30,000, I might have gone for it.

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

You almost had me too. Almost.

Love the December idea PM.

Where do I claim my prize? ;)

Do I also get to meet the prince of some tiny, foreign country?

Heather said...
