Booyah! I won!

Okay, so I've blogged about this Seven Days Seven Answers blog that I love. Call Me Cate posts daily writing cues, which for some reason I like to respond to in limerick form. Each day she names a daily winner.

And guess what? I'm the first all-around winner! That means I've gotten wins on all seven days of the week! Cate wrote a nice (and, as always, funny) post about it here.

So in honor of this momentous occasion, I'll share a few of my winning responses.

From November 14:

Source: Farm Security Administration - Office of War Information Collection 12002-39 (DLC) 93845501
Write a caption.

My response:

"C'mon, better get your cute nosey
Out of that book. Time to mosey
Back to your station.
For the sake of our nation,
Get back to your riveting, Rosie."

From December 17:
Write your Christmas letter to Santa.

My response:
Dear Santa,

Earth's warming; I could ask you to fix her.
Or I could beg for a long-life elixir.
But would it be worth
Living long on this earth
Without a black Cuisinart mixer?

From December 27:

"If you do not change direction..."
Finish this quote from Lao-Tzu.

My response:
If you don't change direction from here to there,
Or change all the things for which you care,
And then if you find
That you don't change your mind,
Change just this one thing every day--underwear


So, there ya go. Somehow a mixer, Rosie the Riveter, and underwear advice won me this highly coveted (at least by me) prize. You should totally try Seven Days Seven Answers. It's a blast!

Some funny, some touching, but always limericks. And even with a self-imposed "handicap", you were the first to win.

Skillz, you has them.
