She thought he was teasing her

From our April 2012 issue

I received my Happy Face Pen today from The Senior Paper. I was surprised it arrived so soon because we had just received our February issue the day before.

I didn’t notice I was a winner as I glanced through the paper, then let my husband read it. When he told me I was chosen as a Happy Face pen winner for writing in, I thought he was teasing me.

I was quite excited and put it in a memory box I have with stories of my childhood I have written for my grandchildren.
