DP Daily Prompt: Grand Slam

The World series starts tonight! In your own life what would be the equivalent of a walk–off home run?( For the baseball averse, that’s a last minute, back-against-the-wall play that guarantees a dramatic victory).

I scored that dramatic victory when at the last minute my name was drawn to win one of the posters that our guest author came to visit our school at the end of our five day workshop.

All the teachers that attended the workshop came from different parts of the United States, I was the only one representing  Gander, Newfoundland, Canada.

Our guest author came on the last day of the workshop, he was an artist as well.He drew a number of posters as he was telling the story of the latest book he had written.

The posters were placed in a box, our names were placed in another box, the idea was to pick a name from the box and give one poster to each one whose name was called.

The chances of getting one was not good for me, there were a lot more teachers than posters. Mr. and Mrs. Halloran wanted me to win one since I was the only one from Canada. Every time a name was picked Mr. Halloran jumped to see whose name came up. he looked at me and said, “there’s a few more you still have a chance.”

I think my name was the last one picked, Mr. and Mrs. Halloran were more thrilled than I was, it was a great day for me!
