Merry Christmas...from Reader's Digest

So here is the continuation of the Reader's Digest saga. It's been confirmed that my joke was published in the January 2008 edition. It is on the second page from the back, in the top right corner (Life in These United States). Look for the joke highlighted in orange.

And...I just received a check in the mail for $300!!!! Thanks Delta representative for paying for our Christmas.

Not Erica's Blog

Troy observed the other day that our blog has transformed into "Erica's Blog" rather than the "Tegeder's Blog." He suggested that I put some pictures of myself up. I compromised and put one of me up with Erica. This one's for Troy:

...and in keeping consistent with the true purpose of the blog (i.e., Erica), here is a funny one of how she likes to sleep.

I'm Famous (sort of)!!!!

A couple people have now seen my published joke in Reader's Digest. My subscription ran out, so I haven't actually seen it, but it goes something like this:

I recently called a popular airline to inform them that I would be traveling with an infant. Our conversation went like this:

Airline Agent: Your name?
Me: Nancee
Airline Agent: Last name?
Me: Tegeder
Airline Agent: Your infant's first name?
Me: Erica
Airline Agent: Her last name?
Me: The same.
Airline Agent: Erica Erica?

Now they are supposed to pay me anywhere from $100-$300 for this joke, but I haven't heard or received anything. Way to go Reader's Digest.
