The odds are in...

Since April 2nd, I've supped my share of rim-rolling Tim Hortons' coffees, in hopes of coming up with...anything.

According to the rules and regulations on the Rrroll Up the Rim website, my best chances were getting a food prize. Odds: 1 in 9.

Here are my results:
- 34 coffees consumed (from about six locations)
- Two free coffees won
- Odds that a coffee I bought would be a winner: 1 in 17
(considerably lower than the posted rate)

No wonder I was mildly disappointed, despite having consumed a more-than-adequate supply of caffeine.

Will that put a damper on my participation for next year? I doubt it. It's part of a Canadian rite of passage from winter to spring.

Besides, the pleasure is in the thrill and getting to the front of the line, I say.

I've given up on winning so now I don't even try

At Western there was a Tim's on every corner and through out the four years I think I won a pathetic single donut
