There are moments I will fondly remember in my career– First pay check, first raise, first uncomfortable work moment due to sheer proximity of seating on a plane, forcedly bonding with co-workers during a 16 hour flight (you can only ask so many questions about people’s children!) and then there’s having my wallet stolen in a foreign country on a business trip and having to ask for money and clothes. You know, the usual. Another one of these ‘special’ moments recently arose and it actually does top the charts.
In case you haven’t caught the TV special or the news earlier this month while entering our Rose Parade contest, Natural Balance will have the “Guinness Book World Record Breaking World’s Biggest Float at the Rose Parade” (say that 5 times in a row as fast as you can). Definitely check out this clip on the ‘making of’ from Jones TV, if you haven’t seen it yet: http://jonespets.tv/node/24361 Who knew so much went into making floats?
After almost a year of watching and participating in the great conversations with my fellow PETCO associates, our fans, followers and readers on our social sites—The Scoop, Facebook and Twitter, I made the recommendation that someone blog, tweet and comment live from the float to bring the experience to all of you. A few days later, I got a call from Natural Balance letting me know that they not only agreed but that person would be me. What? Moi? Really???? I said yes before they changed their mind and then proceeded to fall out of my chair and on to springing like a leprechaun with joy after I got up. Well, maybe there wasn’t any leprechaun-like springing, but I was thrilled.
And the best news of all– Besides saying “Hi, Mom” from the float, and bringing the experience to all of you live, I get the pleasure to give all of you a chance to win prizes totaling over $1000 (yes, one-thousand dollars) during the event, courtesy of Natural Balance and PETCO.
All you have to do is watch and win! More details are coming each day this week on the Scoop. Stay tuned!!
