THE WRITER GAMES, Part 8-ish: Curling
Welcome to The Writer Games.
If you're just joining us, The Writer Games is a two-week contest in the spirit of the Winter Olympic Games. Just like the real Olympics, there will be medals, interviews and prizes. Unlike the real Olympics, you do not have to pray that the last donut you ate will mess up your chances of landing that triple lutz.
Today's Event is Curling, or What Can You Do With a Limerick?
I thought about describing a limerick to you here, but when you type it out,
"da da da da da da da DA,
da da da da da da da DA,
da da da da DA, da da da da da DA,
da da da da da da DA DA!"
it looks like a stuttering magician waiting for his wand to work.
Write a limerick on the subject of winter, sports, or whatever suits your fancy.
You have until Friday at midnight to enter any of The Writer Games events. Check out last week's competitions to join in!
Winners will be announced Monday.
An athlete afflicted with fears
Of crashing too much on his rear
Would do well not to fall
Avoid sports of near all
Of the winter Olympian's gear.
