The Pregnancy Pickle Contest

Friday, March 28th, 2008

By Larry Smith

Have you ever dreamed of your beautiful, pregnant belly featured on a jar of mouth-watering pickles? Us, too.

It’s no secret we’re a little obsessed with pregnant women around here. What you may not know is that we’re also mad about pickles. Now, magically, it all comes together in perhaps the most perfect contest ever. SMITH and artisanal pickle crafters Rick’s Picks are asking anyone with an amazing, unusual, or simply memorable pregnancy story to tell it in 100 words or less. You don’t need a bun in the oven right now, just at some point in your life (and a photo to prove it). We don’t care how or with whom you had/raised your baby, we just want to hear your story.

andie-preg-bump.jpgThree grand prize winners will be featured on a nationally distributed line of pickles, the aptly named Slices of Life—“the pickle of pregnancy.” Seven runners-up (six moms and one dad) will win a delicious Rick’s Picks Pregnancy Pack and a copy of our new book, Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure. Our all-star panel of judges include Girl’s Gone Child’s Rebecca Woolf, founder Neal Pollack, Apartment Therapy: The Kitchen editor Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan, and Lori Leibovich, editor of the anthology, Maybe Baby.

You. On a jar of pickles. Really good pickles. How great is that? Enter here.

    During rites of spirit-conjurations and evocations, shamans and
    those involved with Islamic occultism here in Indonesia often appropriate the Apel Jin oil for facilitating the contact.
    It is through the facial appearance, the quality of the clothings worn, and the luminosity and colours of the aura of the soul that the degree of evolution of the soul may be determined.

    1- Irene Maxine Pepperberg, The Alex Studies, Harvard University Press, England, 1999, pp.

    Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of The Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and
    The Lord will raise him up; and if he has
    committed sins, he will be forgiven. Whether
    it exists is beside the point: the Self, or soul as
    an essence has never been perceived objectively
    by anyone.

    Increase of hormonal levels starts to increase during this stage.

    This must cure the acne, while equally preventing future breakouts.

    This will keep you from using items that are full with germs and bacteria
    that can cause acne.
