Free stuff. I see your ears perking up, like a black labrador who has suddenly realized that he has the house all to himself and there is a container full of the world’s best cupcakes sitting in the middle of the counter, well within his reach.
Do you wanna win a gift certificate to Amazon? All for just being your clever self?
Here’s the deal. I need to come up with a slogan to go beneath the Mommy Needs a Cocktail Girl for the new travel mugs coming soon to Baby Brewing. Problem? It probably isn’t a good idea to put the phrase “Mommy Needs a Cocktail” on a travel mug. What with law enforcement (and the rest of society in general) frowning upon any suggestion of the cocktails/driving combination outside of Hollywood. So while we all know that we would be responsible enough to be drinking coffee, chai or even hot chocolate in our travel mugs, who really wants to be late dropping The Boy off at preschool because she had to walk the line at 7:55 a.m when the cop caught wind of her 30 point font on the mug?
So the Mommy Needs a Cocktail girl located in the banner (or is she the Party Girl Needs a Cocktail? I’m feeling it may be time to cross the great divide into something a little less “Mommy”–or not) goes on the mug, with your winning pithy statement below her. We’ll tell the nice law enforcement officer that she has oatmeal in her glass with a blackberry garnish, if he should ask.
The winner gets a $30 Amazon gift certificate, the travel mug and a t-shirt with the winning design. Wow! Amazing, huh? But wait, there’s more…
Two runners-up will get the travel mug and the shirt.
One person will have his or her name picked randomly (names will go in The Boy’s construction hat) by The Baby (whichever name he eats is our winner) and that person will win the travel mug and a shirt. We’ll try to read your name off the paper on the way down rather than waiting until it comes out the other end of The Baby. Every suggestion you make in the comments below is an entry toward the random drawing. You can put all your suggestions in one comment. So you don’t even have to be clever and you can still win. I love this already….
The winner will be chosen on Friday, September 28, 2007. Have your ideas in before noon, EST.
P.S. “Mommy Needs Coffee?” Our dear friend Java Jen has cornered the market on that one. Damn, she’s good.
If I use your saying at a later date for a shirt, you’ll get one free. I’ll email you and let you know. It’s like having your own personal screen printer, without having to order a minimum of 40 shirts.
Now go be creative.
