The chosen one…

I received an email that informed me that I had been chosen.  Chosen…me…out of how many others…me -chosen. Wow.   

The email subject line said, “Congrats! You’ve been Chosen to Test & Keep Cooking Products!”  Me-chosen. Wow.

I was immediately reminded of another time I was chosen.  That time I was chosen to test fishing gear.  Me-chosen. Wow.

The Cooking Club of America must not know me…just like the Fishing Club clearly didn’t know me.  The only kind of cooking equipment I want to test and keep is a chef (and if it is a super cute chef I’ll even pay shipping and handling).  As for fishing gear – only if it helps me fish for a compliment.

But still, I was chosen. Me-chosen. Wow. 

For future reference though I feel obliged to share with marketing companies across America that the only products I am likely to test and keep as a chosen one are:

1) Husbands;

2) Shoes;

3) Clothing; and,

4) Chocolate.

If you are not trying to market any of the above items, you may want to choose someone else. As much as I like being the chosen one, I doubt I am the demographic selection you are seeking.  But again, if you have that cute chef ready for a trial run Cooking Club of America I will happily pay for overnight shipping. ;-)

About Ms. C

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.
