I have never been one to count on luck or be bothered by free promotional draws and contests, preferring instead not to get sidetracked. Well, a while ago I was trying on a pair of boots, and that very act made me eligible for a draw for a free pair. After I put my order in for a pair of boots, I filled out a ballot not thinking much about it. About a month later I get a phone call notifying me that I am the lucky winner. Well, I'll be. So now I have a lovely pair of boots, with another pair - in a different color and model of course - on the way.

There is something to be said for taking advantage of opportunities, so the next time I am faced with a draw - say, a trip to Paris - my name will be good to go on that ballot.
