why paul howard rocks

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

I am a fan of the Ross O’Caroll Kelly book series as well as the column. I have been ever since I got my hands on the Irish Sunday Tribune and thought the satirical depiction of the D4 sports jock was hilarious.

The books were just as funny and whenever I had finished one I couldn’t wait to get my hands onto the next one.

Then I came across a competition on the publishers website to win a signed copy of the latest book. You should know that I’ve never won anything in my life so you can imagine my excitement. Too bad that when I read the email confirming that I won, two months had already passed and I still hadn’t received my promised signed copy of the precious new book. I thought maybe they didn’t ship from Ireland to Germany or maybe the competition was only open for Irish citizens so I checked the website – nothing.

Well I sent an email, saying that I didn’t receive my copy yet and guess what? This weekend, while we were away to enjoy the lovely sights of Prague, I received a little package.

In it a signed copy of the book. A t-shirt and a card from the author, apologizing for the delay. Ok so I had to wait for ages – I waited so long that in the meantime there is a new book out but what the heck, I am thrilled beyond belief.

So Paul or Rosser, or whatever you call yourself,  if you read this ye foockin’ rockin’ man, I will have a Ken and raise the bottle to you. Thank you.

I'm glad you had a good time in Prague - that's somewhere I must go at some point. And well done with your prize!
