I submitted an essay to Real Simple Life Lessons contest. I fantasize that they are haggling over whether to pick mine and then they do, pick mine. They call me and tell me. I cry when, I hear, "You are the winner." Then, I scream. Then, I lay on the floor and look up my popcorn ceiling, and for a moment I imagine it's Michelangelo's Sistine ceiling, instead. Then, I super bunch Alyss and Tucker and Eric in my arms. I read my essay again and I know why they chose it. Then, I drink some champagne, the good stuff. I call some people and tell them.
Then, we book the flights to New York and when I am with the editors I tell them about my advice column idea and they love it and think it's the best idea they've ever heard. They hire me on as an advice columnist with Real Simple and then my essay becomes the first chapter in my memoir. And, of course, I live happily ever after.
And that's how it goes. I hope you all create a love story that becomes a life event for you today.
