Second Place

Hooray! Gramma won second place in the cake baking contest!

Too bad she was the only person who entered...

In your face, granny! First place is too good for you!

I think that might be the best schadenfreude story I will read all year. I admit I initially laughed out loud when I read it. But then I suddenly had a tragic Flashback to my eighth grade graduation ceremony, when Marsha Kramer was presented with the "Artistic" Award after I had spent the last eight years drawing praiseworthy posters to hang on the office door of the nuncipal (that's the new word I just made up for a nun school principal). I even remember the awkward eye contact I received from the nuncipal at the precise moment she was handing the "Artistic" Award to Marsha, amidst thunderous applause. You could see in her eyes that she knew it was a punch to my gut. The only award I got that day was for participating in Great Books. If it were acceptable to call a nun a bitch, I might consider it, but even typing this sentence has given me the catholic guilt shivers. So instead, I will transfer the blame to Marsha Kramer.

OMG...that is awesome! Hey, maybe next year she'll take the blue ribbon, after all...she is improving, having gone from 3rd to 2nd already!

That Julie Dent is a bitch, I hope she got diarrhea later that day.

If this had been a fifty meter dash and only one person showed up, it wouldn't matter how long it took that person to cross the finish line, they would still cross first and win first place!

Yeah, f*ck Julie Dent AND her organising committee!!! That is so damned rude to give second place to the only entry. I would have thrown the cake in Julie's face!

The stormy dark sky in the background foreshadows gloom and doom for Julie Dent.

Well maybe if she put some friggin' frosting on the damn thing...who the hell wants to eat a plain cake with jelly in the middle? Yuck! They were probably being nice just by giving her a ribbon at all...
