There used to be a contest on the back of the Sunday Comics every week for kids - you would color the pic and send it in...they advertised the prizes, i.e. 50 barbie dolls, 30 tops, 25 toy cars, etc.

And I always was amazed and in awe that if I won I would win that many prizes and why did they send one person so many of the same thing! Unfortunately I never did win but it was many years before I figured that the numbers were the TOTAL of the various prizes they awarded! DUH!

I used to think I was the future queen of the world, but I was put in a "normal" family to grow up so I wouldn't get a big head. Everyone was aware of this, but had been instructed to go along with the farce to teach me humility.

Erica (from kids : i'm different)
