I am a winner!
Actually, my daughter is the winner. She won a Mr. Pickle. At the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, she played skee ball with such accuracy that the dolphin leapt across the board into first place.
My daughter could be an Olympic skee baller.
She selected a Mr. Pickle as her prize and gifted him to me without prompting. OK, maybe a little. I could not resist his greenness, his glasses, his mustache, and his little shoes. And the fact that he was shaped like a…giggle…pickle. I gleefully accepted, squealing Thank You!
Mr. Pickle was promptly secured with a seatbelt in the back seat, as he quickly became the newest member of the family.
With a daughter like mine, I too, am a winner.
