day thirty-seven

i never win anything. okay, well that's not entirely true. i once won a clock. but not just any clock: an exclusive, elusive ray clark clock. i was working in england doing painting jobs. we would listen to the radio every day while we were working. there was a program run by a dj named ray clark and every day, he would present an anagram which, if you could unscramble it and be the selected caller, you could win.

i was only in england for a very limited time, and it became my mission to win a ray clark clock. every day, we'd try unscrambling the word and calling in with no success, but then one day...oh, one day, i won! the best part was the phrase you got to yell if you won: tick tick tock, i won a ray clark clock!

i couldn't wait to receive my prize. it arrived a couple of days before i flew home. i eagerly tore open
the bubble-wrapped package and there it was, about a whole two by three inches big, made out of tacky clear plastic with the radio info on the face.

oh well, at least i won something.
