Upping the Prize

See the source image

Only three days left in our First Annual Christmas Carol Contest, and there’s hardly anybody here today, you could hear a pin drop. All getting read for Christmas, I guess.

Hmmm… What will happen if I upgrade the prize? Say, a sackful of gold coins worth at least $20,000–winner take all!

Or… You could ask for an autographed copy of The Temptation, as soon as it’s published (which really shouldn’t be long now: unless those are famous last words).

I don’t know where I’ll get $20,000 worth of gold coins, but I can worry about that later. Like, when the first lawsuit comes in…

    If the coins are the chocolate kind wrapped in foil, I might be tempted. 🙂 Actually, I was going to request two that I think we’ve had before: “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” and “O Little Town of Bethlehem.”

      Oops, that’s two carols I was going to request, not two coins. When I request chocolate, I don’t stop at two. 🙂

      Now isn’t that funny! I just posted “O Little Town of Bethlehem” a minute ago. No promble, Phoebe–I’ll count it as your request.
      Somehow I’ve got to crank out a Newswithviews column today because I don’t want to be doing it on Christmas, set up (but not yet decorate) our tree, write some Oy Rodney, and watch “A Christmas Carol.” But we can surely find time for “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”!


    LOl love your humor Lee
