As I was standing in the hall, listening to names being called off, I thought/prayed, "Please let someone fun win the dinner." Then the name was called.
One of my friends from Shawnee was up for Mass this evening and bought a raffle ticket right before the evening's festivities. He won the dinner. This is going to be classic. Of course, when he reads this, he'll have to decide whether or not he wants to redeem the prize. An evening with me might be more than 8 people can bear.
