So last week I mentioned that I was looking for sponsors for my relationship with James (if you missed the story you can go here and read how I came to decide that sponsors were necessary), lo and behold quite a few sponsors have stepped forward and offered their services or support.
who sponsored two Diet Cokes for us when we finally meet up. Since it’s been a while since I had a first date, and even longer to never since I had one planned and canceled for months in a row, leading to all kinds of build up and anxiety, I promise you I will be drinking something stronger than Diet Coke. Anyone want to sponsor a shot of Captain Morgan?
HairIGo donated his and hers haircuts and waxings. Not bikini waxing, don’t get all excited, we don’t do that in Minnesota. They offered to get rid of any unibrow either of us might have going on. HairIgo is an amazing salon so this is going to be a real treat.
An anonymous donor has suggested we play Bingo on our first date. I don’t think I have played bingo since Alice Reed’s seventh birthday party when I would have won had I not been goofing around and missed the call to the winning letter/number combination. I think I cried and they gave me a prize anyway but it was traumatic and embarrassing so I haven’t played since. Minnesota has tons of places to play bingo so it really isn’t a bad idea. And nothing brings two people together like sitting in a smoke filled VFW with a bunch of old ladies who have their own bingo daubers, and aren’t afraid to use them.
There are other donors as well and I will be posting a page where they will be featured in the next day or so. We’ve also had some local press interest and as soon as I know the details I will let you know. If you would like to donate you can leave a comment or send me an email. When the page goes up there will be a section where you, the reader, can vote on where we go next as well as information about sponsoring for corporations and individuals. Sponsors will be featured on the sidebar, in the posts and on the pages dedicated to these updates.
We are trying again this weekend, James says he has everything figured out and all I have to do is show up. James is going to quickly learn that I am not a fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl but I’ll go along with him because it will probably make a good post. As long as I don’t get my hair wet, all should be good.
