I am not big on contests. But then again, I'm not that big anymore.
Someone suggested that I have a contest regarding how much weight I've lost since October 3rd of last year.
Why not. It might be a silly contest but I'm willing to sponsor silly.
Whoever can guess my weight on April 19th (my next doctor's appointment), to the nearest 10th of a pound, wins. In the event of a tie, you also need to provide a guess the number for my A1C. The range is from 4.0 to 6.0.
For the winner? An autographed copy of my book "The Gospel According To Daniel: As Far As I'm Translated Correctly", a paperback first edition, that is a collection of my first 39 blogs (a Christmas gift from my family, edited by and the idea for the book provided by my son Tristan). And since some of you will think that that is not reason enough to enter the contest, I'll throw in a $20 Subway gift card.
There's going to have to be some rules. Some of you know me personally, some of you know how much weight I've lost. It wouldn't be fair to let you guess, since, well, you know, you know. Therefore, if you know, don't let me disqualify you. And another rule. If you do know, don't share in comments or e-mail with someone else. I'm not a violent person but if you ruin the one and only contest that I will ever sponsor, well, let's just say that I'm going to hunt you down and give you a nuclear noogie.
Send your guess to my e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for submission: Midnight, April 11th.
