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?
