Momentum Baby…

Well, anyone who knows me well KNOWS what a fan I am of Toby Mac….the one, the only. My buddy Ralph even has his song “Extreme Days” set to play as a ringtone whenever I call him, LOL. Yep, I’ve even preordered his new CD set to release on Oct 5 Knowing this, my friend Amy took the initiative to point me here so I could take full advantage of possibly winning the contest. This is where our dialing momentum comes in…when we hear the cue to call we have to be the 20th nationwide caller in order to be one of the 15 peeps that gets registered for the drawing on Friday. Chicago. Meet Toby. Spending Cash. Awwwwwww yeaaahhhhh….

Now, I can’t blast this kickin’ station on my speakers at work, so Amy has agreed to IM me whenever they play the cue and we’d both start dialing like mad. We also agreed that if one of us wins, we’d take the other. Time was nearing the 12:20 chance, and just then I needed to run downstairs to someone’s office. Ahh well…I WAS at work! Here is the IM dialogue I returned to on my desktop:

Amy(12:22:23 PM): call kristi...
Amy (12:22:25 PM): CALL!
Amy (12:24:50 PM): I ust got caller #10....
