The winners of the fairy wings have been drawn and emailed. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the entries and I am grateful that you chose to participate! This could have gone terribly awry, and I tried desperately not to think of that over the past week.
The winners are:
Lauren – who I believe is age 8. Such a clever young girl. She came into the office with her dad last week and spent the day looking bored, so I told her about this contest and how she should write a limerick or two to be entered. Twenty minutes later I got an email with her limerick and nearly burst my seams with laughter.
There once was a fairy from Texas.
Her name was Princess Alexis.
She thought wings were passé,
so she flew every day
o’er the range in her swift silver Lexus.
This was a hands down win after I read it.
The randomly drawn winner is Gareth, who entered several limericks with two other people as a group. Each person in the group was entered individually into the drawing. Their trio wrote:
There once was a fairy named Jill
Who swallowed a magical pill
Made of Narwhal tears
And Unicorns fears
It’s no surprise she needed whiskey to swill
This is hilarious if you have ever seen this video. Beware- only follow the link if you are ready to have this song stuck in your head for ages. You will never look at a narwhal the same way again. In fact, in my house, all we have to do is say the word Narwhal and the song is sung, in harmony, by all.
Also funny and appropriate is this video, which I suspect was truly the inspiration for this limerick.
Aside from this, I haven’t been doing much exciting work in the house. Just cutting fabric and knitting in circles – not much to blog about. Spring break has officially begun and Ellette is spending the first half of it in Milwaukee with the grandparents. Hopefully, I will be much more productive this week without having my time interrupted by school activities and dinner and bedtime. We will see.
Thanks again to all who participated in the contest. Can’t wait to do another!
