Tidying Up

A quick post because The Mom, The Wife, and The Jonathon have all pestered me about announcing a winner for the poetry contest. I mistakenly thought that since I was offering no prize that no one would care about winning. Guess I was wrong.

The winner is Tina Laurel Lee. Tina's poem was so completely baffling to me that I just figure it was probably awesome. My experience with poetry (and modern art and Kafka and string theory) is that if I don't understand it it's because I'm too obtuse to recognize its inherent genius. So Tina wins!

Also, I'm going to the beach today.

And a teaser: I read John Grisham's book for kids, Theordore Boone: Kid Lawyer. It gave me a blog idea. When I get back from the beach, I might write it. And you will agree with me.

Yay. I got second.

Right?

Hey, that is awesome to win something. Even if it is nothing. I have to thank my son, for being such a pre-teen and the bunnies for their life and their death. Oh and Jonathon for telling me to get my butt over to your blog and write something. And for you, Murph, for saying to write about something kids do.

Oh, but I totally don't deserve it. I am only baffling because I am obtuse, sorry to make you feel like it might be art. But yay if my obtuseness means I win something. Oops, I mean, nothing.

Ooohh, and have fun at the beach!

I protest.

Kelly said...

Congrats, Tina! I want to award something to Tina now just so I can get an acceptance speech like that in the comments!
