An Almost Champion
Tonight was our Ward Nerd Fest! I wore my Betsy-Tacy shirt, high pants, a lanyard that I made myself, my favorite pair of glasses that I found in a gutter after they had been run over by a car, a bulky sweater, crazy pigtails and my giant men's moccasins. And I didn't win the costume contest. There were some very creative people out there!
But I was pretty successful in the Twinkie eating contest! I jumped in just for fun and was able to cram in 3 1/2 Twinkies in 1 minute! I made it to the finals but they were much harder because everyone was cheering and making me laugh. Jared got 2 Twinkies down in 30 seconds but I only got 1 1/2 down, so he was the champion. But I'm ok with second.
Moral of the story - you never know what talents are hidden inside you.
