Condom contest winners and Litquake

by singlemomseeking on October 9, 2008

Update: I actually had to get permission to give away 100+ condom tins (condoms included!) during Saturday’s reading. Yes, I will be carrying these on public transportation. Wish me luck.

My Seal Press publicist just wrote back: “At least you’ll be prepared!”

Prepared for what?–

Please, people, don’t make me trek back home with these.


Remember when I asked for your funniest condom story?

Here are the winners of the hip condom case compact, “Just in Case.”

Amanda practically had me on the floor with this one:

“As a parent you know that nothing in your house is safe from little hands. I had attended a Bachelorette party — and one of the giveaways of the night was a pouch of fun colored condoms. When I got home I tucked the the condoms in a drawer and forgot about them.

A few weeks later, as I was cooking dinner, my daughters were outside playing in water. One of my daughters came in and asked, ‘Can we play with water balloons?’

I said, ‘Sure.’

Well, when I went outside… My then 6 year old daughter was standing at the hose, filling up a bright pink condom with water. Yes, there it was.

She turned to me and said: ‘These are the biggest water balloons you have ever bought! Thanks Mom!’ ”

And the male winner?

Lance from Honey and Lance — because he needs an alternative. Keeping condoms in the glove compartment of your car is not safe. (Lance, your girlfriend might like this case, too! Hint, hint.)

Congrats Amanda and Lance!


This Saturday, you’re invited to Litquake‘s “Lit Crawl,” a three-hour “literary crawl” through the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District.

It’s free! It’s fun! You can see the Lit Crawl line-up here.

I’ll be reading with the lovely Seal Press authors Camille Cusumano and Joan Price, too.

We start at 7:15 at The Women’s Building.

Don’t forget about my giveaways!

See you there?

Since we’re on the topic, does anyone else have a my-kid-found-my-sex-toy story?

You remember my recent sex toy in the mail incident, which unfortunately also mortified my father (and me):

Angela: Matt had hosting problems (I get it). Sweet of you to check about him.

Kelly: I am laughing my head off!!

That’s too funny, oh, you poor thing.

Dad’s House: There are condoms INSIDE the tin you won! You’re the only winner who hasn’t sent me his address yet… C’mon now, would I give you an empty tin?

Sweet, free condoms! Maybe I WILL give it to my new gf.

Oh, you should post your lit quake reading on the Wall at the Facebook Single Parents Connection page!

So, Lance won condoms, and I won a condom tin. Are you suggesting he actually uses them, and I just store them? lol.

That story is hilarious! It reminds me of something that happened to me recently. Remember that contest you had when you gave away the personal massaging duck? I won that, and when it came in the mail my 12 yo daughter was the one who saw it first. Luckily the packaging didn’t reveal it’s true purpose, so I just told her I’d won it and put it away.

So, the other day I got home from the grocery store to find her cuddled up on the couch with my duck! She’d dug it out of the bathroom cabinet. She spent the rest of the day playing with it and giving the dog massages. Yeah, it was kind of uncomfortable! Of course I couldn’t say anything… I just cringed mentally the whole time.

That’s hilarious Rachel. And yes, I agree that Lance could definitely use it too!!

Ah… San Fran in the fall sounds lovely but I won’t be there! 🙁

Have fun without me!

Hey, I hate to bother you…but any idea what happened to Matt Logelin? His website won’t come up and now it’s showing a blank Wordpress site when you type in his name. Ugg! I don’t know of any other way to get in touch and let him know what’s going on, but thought you might.
