I Won! Now what should i put it on?

Along with my Credit Card Bills (which never seems to go down, no matter how much i pay them, i have hate for you NCB) and every other bill, came something that put a smile on my face:) My prize that i won from the one and only Stunner.  The gift was a keyring he brought back from his trip/vacation in  New York. As soon as i read he was holding a contest for it i decided to pitch in, fortunately i won:).

The keyring may seem trivial to some, but i greatly appreciate such a gesture, it’s sort of like what Ruthibelle wrote here ( read and you’ll get what I’m saying). If my memory isn’t failing me I’m pretty sure I’ve never won anything in my life, my family isn’t the winning type, but as stunner said and I’m paraphrasing “it’s never too late to start winning”. I really appreciate Stunner and i hope to win more stuff in your future competitions

      You know, i was watching bizzare foods yesterday evening and they have this sandwich dubbed “faggot”, but in Jamaica…well we all know what faggot means. So the question you sould ask yourself this, What exactly does stunner mean? hahaha

    Glad to know you got your prize and so soon… the postal system really works!

    Nuh worry Ruthibelle, you will have another chance to win.

    Well, according to Dictionary.com :

    “stun?ner
    ? ?/?st?n?r/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [stuhn-er] Show IPA
    –noun
    1. a person or thing that stuns.
    2. Informal. a person or thing of striking excellence, beauty, achievement, etc.”

    -ref: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/stunner

    Does that answer your question Ruthibelle? Only way to be sure is to get stunned by the Stunner 😉 lol

    Idren Gordon,

    So yuh seh, “…my family isn’t the winning type…”

    Scrape the scales from your eyes and take another look at your family!

    Royal Sistren Olivene and Idren Lloyd, your honoured parents, you, and your siblings, Jerome & Andre, are the very definition of a winning type of family.

    Looser families do not turn our bright, energetic, well-rounded young men like you!

    When you were born into that family you hit the life lottery and are still too young to know the value of the prize you won. May you live long enough to realize it.

    Bless Up,
    Lady Roots

      Winning in the sense that we don't win anything, we have to work hard for it. I guess it came across a bit ambiguous, oh well. Oh btw, who are you? You seem to know a lot about my family.
