I just received an email informing me I’ve won tickets (or a ticket…I’m not sure) to the presidential debates (at least one of them) taking place at our university. I entered a piece in the university-sponsored essay contest and it was selected as one of the 12 finalists. However, the same email informs me I’ll have premium seating at the Comedy Central event this week, in order to make my way to the stage as they announce the contest winners. I’m not so thrilled to hear this news; I’d prefer to get the ticket without any hoopla. However, I don’t think I can make it to the CC event, so I guess it all works out. The important thing is I have my ticket.
