Rich And Famous (Sort Of)
Remember this post from last year?
Well, it happened again! Only this time it was a surprise.
I got my December/January SPECIAL HOLIDAY ISSUE of Family Fun magazine on Tuesday and started to read through it. When I got to page 88 I saw this:
I thought, Funny, that sounds like the idea I submitted a LONG time ago. And it was even funnier when I saw that it mentioned our family by name. It WAS my idea! Someone did call me about publishing it about a year ago but she didn't have a definite date. Honestly? I think it was a lot more fun finding out about it this way.
Two days later I got 2 extra copies of the magazine in the mail. I'm guessing it's so I can autograph them and pass them out to my adoring fans.
It makes me feel a little famous.
To top it all off, they pay you $100 if they use your idea...
I think that makes me rich and famous.
(Hey, when it comes to fame and fortune, I take what I can get.)
