Travel The Road Of Life In Luxury

Tim Horton’s yearly contest “Roll Up The Rim To Win” began on February 18th and ends when the supply of cups last. It is generally towards the end of March when it ends, but I suppose if everyone else stops going to Tim’s then I could play until May 19th which is when they stop honouring the winning cups.

So the contest is pretty much over for another year and I am beginning to think that it just may be that I will not win the Rav4. I really felt that this was the year I would finish my coffee and with hands warmed from holding that paper cup I would roll up the rim and see “Gagnez Un Rav4”. I always seem to read the French printing first for some reason, whether it is a coffee or a box of raisins. Oh well…

There are people out there that could use a new car more than I do, and certainly there are more deserving people I suppose, but I doubt that there is anyone out there that wants it any more than I do. That last part was to let the universe think I really, really, really want the car. I don’t really give a shit about the car, barbecue, $5000 credit card, the $100 Tim cards or any of the food and beverage prizes. The approximate total of prizes is about $54,000,000 when all is said and done. Of course we have to take their word for it, but why would Tim’s lie to us?

This is a very good year for me, I feel empowered. Not empowered like a woman that has taken control of her life, but empowered as in I can accomplish anything. Well, not winning a Rav4 I guess, but pretty much anything else. Probably not become a rock god or compete in the Olympics, but most other things. I started to think of all the things I won’t actually be able to do and I’m starting to get a little depressed. That’s no way to be empowered! Oh well…

When you think of it, I have won six coffees, well actually nine if you count the three cups that I bought for other people who won a coffee. I won a donut and six songs that I can download from the internet. Sure they are crappy songs, but I didn’t have to pay for them. Free is good…right? That is well over ten bucks won, and it only cost me about one hundred. That is way better than the lottery has treated me for the past thirty years or so.

I don’t need Tim Horton’s to tell me that I am a winner. It would be nice of course, but that feeling has to come from inside and involves you being comfortable with the person you are and the road that you are travelling through life. Of course travelling that road inside with air conditioned comfort, heated seats, power windows and doors, Bluetooth capabilities, a nice stereo system and perhaps a sun roof would be pretty sweet. It isn’t written anywhere that you can’t travel the road of life in luxury.

Hey! The contest isn’t over yet.
