Now that's what I call appreciation

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

For the past month I've had two awesome interns at work, and tonight was the mentor appreciation night for their program. As their mentor, of course I went! And, I didn't leave the event empty handed.

What did I get? Well, since you asked, they had a drawing for a couple of door prizes for the mentors, and I won. Wooo! I lucked out with 7 bars of organic chocolate, a box of Whole Foods cookies, AND a $25 Whole Foods gift certificate.

Seriously, it's A LOT of chocolate:

While I hope the interns learned plenty of life skills they can take with them, I learned tonight that if you're the last person to put your business card in the bag for the drawing, it will be the first one chosen. I'm just kidding, that's not the only thing I learned...I think I learned just as much from the two interns as they (hopefully) learned from me!

What a great gift basket! Now you've got me craving chocolate...haha!

P.S. — I wholeheartedly agree with what you've learned about prize drawings. The only time in my life I've ever won a drawing was when I dropped in my business card RIGHT before and ended up winning a free lunch for my entire office!

Awe... glad it turned out so well. Way to go! Now eat some chocolate. It's good for you after all.

Green & Black's! My old company produced G&B, it was dangerous how much chocolate was around the office! Good tip about the last-minute business card drop - I never win a thing; I'm going to try this ;)
