Okay, here's the first one:

Jimmy the Tulip has proved his ability at wooing a mate, but it sounded strangely like a Stork Call. So, Mrs. the Tulip has arranged for the delivery of the youngest Tulip for the 30th of March, but since the little tike shares DNA with the father, who knows when s/he will arrive?

So, to help the hapless couple best arrange for the fateful day, we're putting our credits where our mouths are. Go to the new Wager Shop and purchase a Delivery icon. State your purchase here and the date you expect delivery, and who ever gets the closest date wins 500 NSCs!

Here's the rules:
1) Each Stork icon costs 25 NSCs.
2) Buy between 1-5 icons. Obviously, if you buy more than one, provide five dates here.
3) Icons have to be purchased and dates stated no later than 07 March (to allow for a possible early delivery).
4) If two or more people share a winning spread on the date, each winner gets 500 NSCs!
5) Once the purchase of the icon has been verified by me, I will remove it (to prevent selling back) and state so. Bets become permanent at that time.
6) No one may edit their delivery date post dates after 07 March. Doing so invalidates all dates in that post.

So, go for it. Buy your icons and tell the Tulips when the little bud will arrive!

Well, as Dan has insisted that I make a wager, I will have to show my faith in the midwife's ability and go for March 30th.


Dan: 1 wager confirmed.

So, my dates are:

March 24th
April 2nd

Dan: 2 wagers confimed.

Congratulations to longbow_cs and Hellbent for guessing the correct date!

My beautiful daughter was born on April 1st at 9:34 am by caesarian. Both mother and daughter are doing very well. Kyra Grace weighed in at 6 lb, 11 and is tall and slim like her dad. Very Happy

You are so right. Everyone says that the feeling is indescribable the first you see your new child, but until you actually do it you can't even begin to understand. It is the most incredible, intense and undescribable feeling that, I think, you could ever experience without going nuts.

Thank you, guys.

Very, very late congratulations to JtT! Looks like I just missed out on the announcement.

I'm still poking around the site, but please let us know (if you haven't) what it feels like to be a parental unit.

Also, humble apologies to both longbow_cs and Hellbent for winning 500 NSCs each!

Party at their pads!
