Just in Time

You know how they say everything happens for a reason? Case in point.

My sister and I attended a coupon swap last night. It is well documented how 'we' as in my sister and I, never never ever ever win ANYTHING. Just two weeks ago we went to a coupon class where there were 20 participants. The instructor says she has some give aways and will draw names until all the give aways are gone. Remember just 20 people.....everyone won something except 6 people AND you guessed it.....we were two of the 6 that didn't win a damn thing.

Well, that all changed last night. There were 10 or 12 people at the swap and there were some give aways. I wasn't holding my breath on winning anything when what do you know, we both won. My sister won a tote bag and I won this...... Yup...I won a towel folded into the shape of a truck. Man oh man...I've always wanted a towel truck.
I had no idea what in the world I was going to do with a towel truck when lo and behold I starting reading the recipe for a cake I am baking and realized that I needed a towel.....maybe not a towel truck but a towel none the less.

See I am making a roll cake and you need a linen or cotton towel to aid in the rolling part. Every towel in my towel drawer is terry cloth, what was I to do?
I then remembered last night's windfall and ran to get the towel truck. Upon opening the towel truck I realized that not only did I win once but I won twice since there were two towels in the towel truck.

I suppose now because I won two towels......it will be twice as long before I win again. Pffft...in that case, I will be dead before I win again.
