Golden Heart Scores Arrived
Posted April 12, 2010on:
Funny. I’d been waiting for this envelope to arrive for months. When I arrived home this evening to find it, I couldn’t open it. The little voice in my head, you know, the Anti-Muse? She’s sitting back on her chaise, frothy umbrella drink in hand, regarding me over the tops of half-glasses, while a tiny amused smirk curls her lips. “So adorable. You didn’t actually expect the necklace, did you?”
No. No, I didn’t. And I already know I did not finalize. So, with a pointed glare at Anti-Muse, I tore open the envelope, astonished to learn Border Lines ranked in the second quarter. In a contest of 1200 entries, ranking in the second quarter is frankly pretty damn great, if I do say so myself.
Anti-Muse toasts me with her glass, tosses it back and, for once, says nothing.
