Stride Gum: A Funny Story

3 06 2009

A few weeks ago, I entered a contest to rename Stride Gum´s mint-flavored gum. So, I went a little crazy submitting names with the hope that one of my names would be in the top ten. Fortunately, this is precisely what has happened. The winner gets $10,000.

I know that at least one of my names is in the top ten– everlasting mint (in fourth place at the moment). I feel like my other names might be in the running, but I completely forgot what other names I submitted. Regardless if I win or not, it feels pretty good to be recognized.

On another note, Stride  has paid for Matt (from to go around the world dancing. I think it´s only fair that Matt has a female counterpart. After all, it´s the twenty-first century, and women should be sharing the stage with men, to say the least.

I sent Stride an inquiry on their ¨contact us¨page letting them know that I think I´m their lady for the job. Let´s hope I get a response!

More updates to come soon. I have tons!
