A couple people have already entered the contest. They must realize that nobody is going to get the correct answer and are just playing for the other 1 to 3 prizes. I dare you to prove me wrong, but I doubt you will. Good luck trying.

I am going to give some clues. Only they are not necessarily real clues. They might be. But, they might not be, too. Each of the clues will have something in common with 205 or at least a number near there. But only one of them will actually relate to the answer. Or maybe none. Or maybe more than one.

Here is the first batch of “Clues” for the 205 Contest

  • Prices sure are high again at the gas station.
  • I weighed 215 pounds on January 1st.
  • I’ve never been able to get past page 40 of any book I’ve tried to write without realizing what I knew around word 205; I don’t know how to write a book.
  • I subscribe to a lot of blogs.
  • It’s tax time, isn’t it?
  • Our treadmill is for sale on Craigslist.
  • So are the kids’ old Thomas the Tank Engine Beds
  • I started ripping all of my CDs onto iTunes way back before the kids were born and still have some left to do.
  • We pay a flat rate for gas for our house all year round. They adjust once a year. We increased the attic insulation last summer.
  • My sister is getting married this summer. My kids are going to be the ring bearer and the flower girl. More people are invited to my sister’s wedding than we invited to mine and BeAGoodMom’s
  • In high school, I was 6′ 2″ and weighed 155 pounds. I could barely bench press 130 pounds.

That’s all for now. I’ll probably do another round of clues next week.

Important change to the contest

For all of you that were nice enough to read this whole post, I need to change the contest deadline date. I realized late last night that I will be hosting the Carnival of Family Life on March 5th. I’m going to push the deadline back exactly one week. So, you need to enter by March 11th and I will announce the prizes and link to your guesses on March 13th. Sorry about that. I won’t change the date again. If something comes up, I will just start drink a lot of coffee during those days.
