I have just come second in McKoala's competition to write a scene where Robin and Whirl go on a date.
FH was a close second, for clarity and use of cow.

Marks for clarity are of course good but I was overwhelmed to gain points for use of cow. Never before have I received this accolade and that is why I wanted to share it with you now.

What's the weirdest compliment you've ever had?

A friend of mine once said, "if I was gay, it would be with you."

Haven't touched tequila since. Or his thigh.

Thanks for mangling my phantom beautifully, btw.

Wow, another new accolade! Thank you, Whirl. I'm glad you're still speaking to me.

This may not be the weirdest (or even weird), but it's what came to mind.

When I graduated from high school, someone I always wanted to get to know (but were too afraid to try) wrote in my year book: "Bevie, you are so difficult to get to know, so I never got to know you. What a shame."

I know! Tell me about it.

Sylvia said...

It was extraordinarily appropriate use of a cow. I grinned when I saw McK's comment and then laughed out loud when I read your piece. It was excellent!

fairyhedgehog said...

Bevie, that's quite sad and odd, because you aren't at all difficult to get to know online. I suppose that's different though.

Sylvia, thank you! I can now say that I've been commended for appropriate use of a cow. I'm speechless (but I can still type). I absolutely loved your piece. It was brilliant.

PJD said...

Hmm... personally, I think I'd be more proud of an accolade for inappropriate use of cow. If it were, of course, and accolade and not a criticism.

But yes, your entry was most certainly well done and worthy of at least a top five finish.

Robin B. said...

HA! I've been remiss in visiting.

I loved your 'use of cow' as well!

fairyhedgehog said...

Pjd, Inappropriate use of cow certainly raises some questions... And thank you. To be in the top five out of four... what can I say?

Robin, Thank you. You're still talking to me, yay!
