On 9th February I saw this competition, featuring two tickets to KwaZulu Natal Philharmonic Orchestra concert on Valentine’s Night:
As may be seen, the second half featured Elgar, whose music we are both fond of, and I thought, ‘I should enter this.’ Then came a strange conviction. ‘If I do, I’m going to win.’ Thus, it was with pleasure but no real surprise that I received this email on 12th:
BIG CONGRATS – YOU ARE A WINNER WITH SOSUTERBILL.COM
You have won the SoSuterBill Valentine’s Day competition – two KZNPO concert tickets for the Durban City Hall on February 14, as well as a Royal Hotel double coffee and cake/dessert voucher, plus a box of Lindt chocolate balls.
How did I know? I just know I knew. Was it something in the ether? Or was it me subconsciously thinking that it wasn’t everyone’s cup of cappuccino, and thus there might be few entries? Still, even if there were only two, for example, how did I know I would be the one of the two? Anyway, the cappuccino and Black Forest cake were delicious, and the cherry on top of the cherry on top of that was free wine before the start of the concert and during the interval.
