So a few weeks ago, I received an odd email from The Little Penguin Foundation
, thanking me for adopting a little penguin
. I had no personal recollection of adopting a penguin -- although just cause I didn't remember it, doesn't mean I didn't do it. It sure seemed like something I would have done... I mean, I'm familiar with the organization and have spent some time perusing their site before and checking out pictures of their adorable little fairy penguins. But I just didn't remember actually following through with my desire to adopt one...
I spent a day wondering whether it was a gift from an anonymous friend -- and what a delightful thought! Someone just up and out of the blue adopting a penguin for me. But it wasn't my birthday and it wasn't quite Christmas, and while penguin giving should never be confined to only one part of the year, no one mentioned anything about it to me...
So I shrugged, smiled at the thought of a penguin in Australia getting some money, and promptly forgot about it.
Until today when I got another email clarifying -- apparently, months upon months ago, I entered a drawing with The Little Penguin
wine company for a chance to win an "Adopt a Little Penguin" package. Apparently I won my own little penguin (er, that is to say, the company donated $75 to the foundation in my name). And soon I get a package in the mail w/ info on the adoption -- including pictures, I hope!!
So hurray for little penguins. :)
