Just two seconds ago, I had a really great idea. Really great. And I’m going to tell you all what that really great idea is right now before I become distracted by something shiny. (Ooooh! Tinsel!)
Okay, ready? Here’s my really great idea: I want to put together the best, braggiest, funniest, most ridiculous holiday letter ever. You know, the letters people send each December to their friends and family that let everyone what they’ve done all year? Their accomplishments, vacations, honors, awards, etc. The letters that are always entertaining to read, but can sometimes be unintentionally funny.
So here’s what I need from you: one sentence to add in the letter. Just one measly sentence—how easy is that? Start typing now! Tell your friends! Work that social media network of yours, baby!
And for continuity purposes here are a few restrictions for your one sentence:
The family’s name is THE SCHMUCKLERS
Kids: Haley (16), Cody (10) and Olivia (5)
Pets: Tinkerbell the Rottweiler and Squiggy, the half-dead fish
Here’s one to get started:
This year Cindy found out what bath salts are and that gave all of us a great opportunity to meet our local law enforcement!
Please email your brilliant sentence to me at email@example.com by next Tuesday the 18th and I’ll put them all in one kick-ass letter and post it just in time for Christmas. Fun!
And just to sweeten the deal, I’ll pick one sentence at random and the writer will receive a BIG FANCY PRIZE* that I haven’t yet purchased. (*Big fancy prize will maybe be something I’m regifting.) (Or maybe it’ll be a flat screen TV!**) (**It’s not a flat screen TV.)
So what are you waiting for? Send me your holiday letter sentence!
