You can say what you want about my Bretty, but let me just tell you.... HE IS AWESOME! I am not going to get all sappy and tell you how much I love him, what a great dad he is, etc. etc. etc. Broken record. But I AM going to brag on him about his work stuff.
Brett works for Airgas. They sell any kind of gasses, welding supplies and safety supplies that you can ever dream of. He is an amazing salesman. Always has been. He is a charmer and can pretty much talk anybody into anything. He has really been rocking it at work lately and it has not gone unnoticed. Several little things have been happening lately that his bosses have noticed and I think it is probably paving the way for bigger and better things. Certain vendors will step in and start contests for Airgas employees to encourage them to sell their stuff. Besides his paycheck, he gets little bonuses every now and then for selling certain things. A few months ago, Lincoln Electric announced a contest for Airgas employees called "Drive to Indy." (I might get the details wrong here, sorry Brett!) The top 10 sellers (I think) of a particular product would win a trip to the Indy 500. Of all of the millions of Airgas employees... BRETT WON!!!
This is what he got: A trip for two to the 2009 Indianapolis 500 which includes:
*Round trip airfare
*Ground transportation while in the Indianapolis area
*All meals (including a winners banquet the night before the race)
*Police escort on race day to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway
*Race tickets with full access to the Lincoln Electric suite located just above pit lane on the front straightaway
*A driver "meet and greet" appearance at the suite on race morning
HOW COOL IS THAT! And, yes. He is taking me! We don't know much about Indy racing, but we don't care. We are gonna learn it and LOVE IT!! We know one very important thing though. It is NOT NASCAR. And I do know a couple of racers.. one of them is Helio Castroneves. He won Dancing with the Stars in 2007! The other one I know is cute little Danica Patrick. She is gorgeous and has been on lots of commercials and in many magazines. Both of them are scheduled to race. We are super excited. We are sad that we can't take Quayd, but Brett and I have not gone anywhere alone for over 4 years! It's our turn. Quayd will be fine.. I hope!
Really, we don't win stuff, so this is a pretty big deal to us. We leave on Saturday, May 23rd and come home Monday the 25th. Short and sweet. (Obviously, these are not my pictures. I got them from photobucket.com. Mine will be much better and instead of Julianne Hough standing with Helio, it will be me! And I am sure Brett hopes that instead of Secret deodorant in Danica's underarms, it will be him!!!)
Way to go BRETT!!!! Isn't he awesome? Love that guy! :D
