It’s just a little thing. Less than 140 characters, in fact. But it made my day.
I was having one of those mornings, extended from one of those nights. The throbbing pain in my foot, which would have been alleviated had a certain company sent me the foot wrap I ordered instead of accidentally sending me someone else’s order, didn’t help.
Then I learned that the Round One finalists for the Tweet Me a Story contest were posted. It was the shortest short-story contest I’d ever entered, lasting only a few hours and limiting the story – like Twitter – to 140 characters. Crazy, but fun. Hesitantly, I glanced through the list of finalists. But I didn’t see any of my three entries there. Oh, well. What did I expect for a day like this?
Then I started reading through the other entries. Some of them were amazing. But there were others that didn’t seem quite as good as mine, at least not to me. Sigh.
Then I saw it. One of my very own entries. I had made it after all! Maybe today won’t be so bad.
There’s another one. Not one, but two of my entries actually made the first cut!
It’s officially a good day.
