This morning I went into the Lawton's drug store with my mother. As I rounded the corner to the place where you pick up prescriptions my good friend Ken was in the line up.
We chatted. He said he'd be heading out of town for a few days. I reminded him to keep reading the blog. He told me not to worry because he was one of the 4.7.
Which got me to thinking.
Justin Bieber's fans are called "Bieberites" or something. Grateful Dead fans are referred to as "Dead Heads". People who are devotees of the guy who sings "Margaritaville" are known as "Parrot Heads".
What should we call folks who read Bevboy's Blog?
It seems too formal to call you guys "readers". "4.7'ers"? Maybe. But what if I get more daily readers than that some day? Would I then call you "5.1'ers"?
Let's have a contest.
Come up with a name to describe the regular readers of Bevboy's Blog. You may leave a comment to this blog post. You may leave a comment on the Facebook links that point to this post. You may reply to the tweet that points to the blog post. You may send me an email at email@example.com. You have no excuse not to contact me with a suggestion or two.
The winner will be the person whose suggestion I like the most. And the winner will get some prize. If they live in Nova Scotia, you will win lunch with Bevboy, my treat. If you live elsewhere, we will work something out.
Please put on your thinking cap. Come up with a suggestion. Help out your fellow regular readers. Be creative!
The contest will be over at 11:59pm ET on April 30th 2013.
Get to work. Make me proud. Let me hear from you soon.
See you tomorrow.
