Wonderful "What's That?" Wednesday Winners!

So today, my friends, we have the answer to last week's "What's That? Wednesday" game, and I have some giveaway winners to announce! Woo-hoo!

The correct answer to the mystery object is...

A deodorant protective cap!

So the first person to guess that correctly was Ms. Hartz! Let's give a big round of applause to Ms. Hartz for her awesome eyes on this one!

And for the question of what the item's alternate use in my house is, the answer is:

A cat toy! This was not, of course, by my design, but through popular demand at my house. Apparently, that little tab at the top makes it perfect for tiny furred beings to bite onto it and bring it to me, over and over and over again, for endless sessions of fetch... HARRY. (Yes, I'm talking about you.)

So that means the first person to guess the item's alternate use-- a cat toy-- is Reforming Geek! Way to go, Geek Gal! You do know your cat toys!

So each of you two nifty people will win a copy of my humorous space fantasy novel, There Goes the Galaxy. I will need you to just email me at jennthorson {at} earthlink {dot} net with your addresses and I will mail your books out to you right away.

Oh, and if anyone is interested in ordering their own copies of the book, in either paperback, for Kindle, or Nook you can do that here. They also make fun gifts for folks who like a little humor with their sci-fi. (Both Nook and Kindle versions are currently priced at $0.99, so it's easy on the wallet, too!) :

Thanks for playing along, everybody!

Yay for Ms. Hartz !
And I thought her's was the most ridiculous guess !

But then, I do not often have the opportunity to uncover sticks ladies deodorants and have a look at the protective caps.

Yay for Reforming Geek ! I knew you would win !

Paige said...

fuck yes!

ReformingGeek said...

Yea! Yea! I wonz. I wonz.

Oh, wait. Congrats Ms. Hartz!

There were a lot of creative guesses.

Thanks, Jenn, for the contest! I'll be contacting you shortly.

Yay, I won!

It makes sense that it's also a cat toy. Because anything, especially if it's something to throw away, becomes a cat toy. That's why we have a pile of newspaper that was previously used to pack a box laying in the middle of our living room floor.

Jaffer- It's okay, we won't hold you responsible for not knowing what the protective cap on a stick of Secret looks like. :)

Paige- Not sure what part you're cheering on, but I like your enthusiasm!

Reforming Geek- YAY! Awesome! Congrats! I will be mailing you.

Mz Hartz- Oh yes; I have two paperbags on my kitchen floor for the same reason. Cats LOVE bits o' things you would otherwise throw away. Corks. Milkrings. Newspaper. Bottlecaps. They are all about recycling.
