This is a true story.
Yesterday I received an email from the administrators of the Black & White Spider Awards competition which said this:
"Your Certificate of Achievement from the 11th Annual Black & White Spider Awards has been packed, stamped and mailed off to you! I would like to offer you a free entry to this year's awards as thanks for your patience with the delay in printing and receiving your certificate."
I thought that was very nice of them, but as I didn't enter this competition, I figured I should let them know they've obviously got me confused with someone else. I was just about to send a reply, when something made me think "hmm...maybe I should check if I entered, before responding".
Good thing I did, because it turns out that I have the memory of a carrot. I had entered one photograph in one category and it won a nomination place. Who would have thought, eh?
