With all the talent that I saw in the competition, I think another immediate competition is in order.
I would never be a judge because,, everybody would hate me.

I liked every story I read. Most important; thanks to all that entered.

One more thing,
well a few more things really; I wanna thank Thoughtful for learning me a new word.
"commiserations"
I'm not even sure if I've heard that before, but it doesn't matter. I now know what it means.

And thanks to all the thoughtful people who invested countless hours putting this contest on.
Where do they find the time







Cheers all
