the best friends you’ll never have

Pigeonrat set up a cool new feature on the wiki which has the latest BSC-related headlines. I read this news story, and can’t help feeling jealous of this girl.

Her prize $500 gift card, well, “that’s sort of all gone now,” says Emily, a fifth-grader at Arnco-Sargent Elementary. She bought a trampoline, an American Girl doll — Molly, if you’re curious — Legos for her little brother and doodads from Claire’s Accessories. Books, too.

But there’s another part to the prize: Martin, the author, in the flesh.

Martin’s writing schedule usually keeps her from book tours, but she’ll be in Newnan on Monday to greet fans and sign books.

Emily is so excited, so nervous, she doesn’t even know what to say to the writer.

She expects to start with “hi.”

Pretty cool, huh?

Yeah, I doubt they would have picked a 22-year-old’s entry as the winner. But still. Completely and utterly jealous.
