When I said I was going to have Gene pull a name out of a hat, I meant it literally! Behold, niece Sydney's kindergarten art project: magician's hat with wand AND pink bunny. Pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself, the proud Auntie. If you look closely you can see her name upside down in silver glitter, or what remains of the silver glitter a decade later! Thanks for letting Aunt Gonnie exploit your childhood memories, Sydney!
Gene was indeed the honest-to-goodness designated "name puller" and since no one sent the bribes he tried to hijack, he was also honest, even closing his eyes to pull out one of those multi folded slips of paper.
