Yay! I broke the double digit mark on Eirinn’s picture (confused? see post below)!!! We got 15 votes, which was good enough for 6th place. Sixth place won us a great big…self-imposed pat on the back. But that was all I was aiming for. It’s not very often that you get to pat yourself on the back.
Thanks for your votes, whoever you 9 mystery voters were. I love you unconditionally now and I’m inviting you to my next birthday party.
A friend of mine, Karla, won first place and another good friend came in third. Congratulations ladies! You obviously have many more friends than I do and I’m totally not bitter. Or maybe your solicitation skills are better honed than mine. I was the type who would bring home a box of Girl Guide cookies and make my parents buy them all so I wouldn’t have to ask anyone.
So my extremely low expectations (my only wish was to break 10 votes, when the winning picture received well over 100) were exceeded and I’m a happy girl. No one will be accused of pinching the pregnant lady and making her cry.
