A few of you asked about the story and the contest and the prize, so I thought I'd share. A few months back, the Journal Sentinel held a contest. The grand prize was 2 tickets to see Wicked, the musical, when it came to town. They would also give away 8 runner up prizes of Wicked merchandise. The challenge was to write the back story of your favorite classic character, like Humpty Dumpty.
I didn't win the tickets, but I'm still going to see it. Little Mr. and I are going to celebrate his birthday(it was in June). I did win some cool stuff though. My prize was a neat Wicked tote bag, a hat and a couple of tee shirts.
I haven't seen any mention of it in the paper and I'm pretty sure they wouldn't print the runner up stories, but keep your eyes open for the winners story. I can't wait to read it. Until then, you can read mine.
Or not. I'm having technical difficulties. Again. Story of my life. Once I figure out how to move it from one place to another, then you can read it.
