Six words plus Janna equals... something

If you've been reading the Jannaverse for awhile, you may remember that last April I did a couple posts on six-word-stories.
(Here and Here).
Mary ("TheTeach") had a contest recently for six-word-stories/memoirs, so I submitted some of the ones I'd done. My favorites were these:

Occasionally I actually
Believed in something
Found you, lost...
Lost you, finally
I died once;
You never cried.
I awoke
warped further each morning
He did NOT taste like chicken.
There are plenty of others, as you can see if you click on the links I gave.
I submitted a few of them to the contest, as did 34 other people.
The results were posted today.
I got 3rd place, with this one:
Smiles hid the tears
Every time
I was surprised that that one won, since I really didn't think it was my best. But hey, at least I placed with something.

First place, incidentally, went to my dear friend Morgen, who wrote this one:
Came out
Found love
Now alone
So congrats to Morgen for winning first. He's already blogged about it, with a post titled "I won! I won! I won!"
LOL. :)
I could have titled this post "I got 3rd! I got 3rd! I got 3rd!" But that doesn't have quite the same ring to it.

What DID he taste like?

Janna, I think you know how talented you are. All three of you could have taken 1st place! But Mo's encompassed his life so well. Your "I died once, you never cried" was my personal favorite. I had a REALLY hard time deciding. Next time I'm gonna ask a couple of judges (would you be one?) to decide with me.

That's awesome. I think that I am going to have to do this. They will all probably be really dark. I have been in a dark mood.

Janna, Congratulations on your 3rd place win. I've never ever written poetry or entered a writing contest. This was quite fun and quite new for me. Happy Valentine's Day.

Congrats! There's no way I could have even thought something up for something like this and you did SO well!

Mo said...

Congrats on third place(I won!)

Shelli said...

ROFLMAO at Mo. Congrats to you, too, Mo!

Janna said...

The108: ROFLMAO! Yes! Let's go harass whoever got 4th place! :)

Mr. Fab: Asparagus, I think.

TheTeach: Good luck with your future contests.

Shelli: I've been in a dark mood two. Between the two of us, maybe we can cause an eclipse! Let's try!

FeatheringMyNest(Kathi): Thanks for visiting! Stop by again soon! :)

Pand0ra: Thanks! :)

Morgen: You crack me up.

Shelli: He cracks me up.
