Who Is Going to Tell Her Premiere Contest Winner

Who is going to tell her we asked each other, Your sister, your aunt, married to your brother. Tell her in a nice way we cautioned the loser, Sandra glared at us, the worst straw chooser. She sat and stared but did not talk at all. Supposed to tell her today, not next fall. We knew this could quickly go south, for a fly does not enter a closed mouth… Written: 7-02-2019 Contest: Romani Proverb Sponsor: Julia Ward

Well Caren, sometimes it is hard to tell someone the facts they need to know. You know I think you did the best you could do. That is all you can do. You did well. Enjoy your day my friend.

I always love it when I get to be the one; always the most reluctant usually.

Being at the loosing end of the short straw contention I can certainly feel empathy. For the very reason the straw was needed in the first place north was never the destination. Loved the poem!! Congratulations :)

I have raised three daughters and I have six granddaughters, and I used to allow 14 girls aged 11 to 13 to have lunch with me about three days a week for two years. I am surrounded by this!
