I never win contests. I just don't. But last year my church sponsored a chili cook off and I thought the winners chili was just okay. So yesterday morning I find out that the next one was yesterday evening. I went to the store, bought some ingredients, and made a batch of chili. I won. My 'Hardcore Carnivore Chili' was the first place winner. I'm feeling way more smug than the actual achievement warrants. I'll probably be better in a couple of hours, but right now I'm making Peter McFerrin faces all over the house.
