  5. To all those who have been winners only to end up losers, I too was so excited to win the second prize. I went to the website provided on the receipt that came with my purchases, entered the 11 digit code, filled in name, mailing address and email address, and anticipated the bountiful honors. Alas, the next few days felt longer with each empty mailbox. Finally, the naivety was cleansed from me, I returned to the website that which played me like a Sony Playstation® Control. The link had died and turned into this;

    In the passing days I’ve become more emo, colder, and now stronger. I’m better than the empty promises of the Hershey Company & Walgreens that toy with the emotions of faithful patrons. I might suggest they ought to genetically engineer emo-grass as a more “green” technology. Saving money on lawnmower fuel with grass that cuts itself.
