//Ad libs: But I thought it was a Fry's ad

But I thought it was a Fry's ad

I know one little Tiffany's necklace who's feeling mighty lonely.

See, the folks at TheatreWorks decided to try a glittery promotion. A few weeks ago they mailed out 20,000 season brochures -- one had a gold sticker on it. If you get that brochure, you win a necklace designed by Paloma Picasso, with 12 strands of pearls and sterling silver clasps. The bauble is scheduled to be presented on stage June 24 during a production of "Vanities."

But, um, no one has claimed the prize. And the special brochure was randomly placed in a pile of mailers before the address labels got popped on, so there aren't any clues about who the winner is.

I throw out piles of junk mail every week. Doesn't everyone? Do you now kinda wish you hadn't?

Unfortunately, with the amount of dreck clogging our mailboxes, I would be very surprised if the golden ticket ever saw the light of day. (In case I'm wrong, I'll be out back shuffling through the recycle bin.)
