They Say A Picture Is Worth…

…what, something like 1,000 words?  How about 250?

Check out this incredibly cute picture:

No caption this time. That’s YOUR job.

Now, if you please, come up with a little story to go with it!  No more than 250 words, please — just leave your entry in the comments section.  Deadline is this coming Sunday 11/25 at 11:59 p.m. central time.

I’ll try to make a poll for the entries, and then the winner of the readers’ choice poll will win a guest blogger spot here on Sappho’s Torque, on a mutually agreed upon date.  Won’t that be fun??  Yes!  Yes, it will!

For all those of you in the U.S. and all you U.S. ex-pats out there, Happy Thanksgiving.  If you have a holiday this week, then you have some free time.  Enter this story contest.  And if you don’t have a holiday and/or free time this week, enter it anyway, because nothing says procrastination like entering an internet contest.

Cheers!  🙂

P.S. — Please feel free to spread the word about this opportunity.  I’d love to see how far this thing can go.

    Do you see my shirt, Mom? It has Iron Man and Spider Man and Captain America. It does not have a stoopid looking cat on it. But my face? My face now has a stoopid looking cat on it. Because you think it looks cute. Well, I don’t think it looks cute, but, you do and you said I had to ‘participate’. Well, now I’ve ‘participated’, and I’d really appreciate some ice cream.


  2. Well, I don’t see any point in having a poll since Andrew is the only person who participated in the contest. Andrew, you win! 🙂

    And for the record, actually a few people did send me captions over email but didn’t want to make them public. They were fun to read, and I’m glad they sent them.

    Thanks to everyone who participated in any way. 🙂


      1. Oh, and there will no doubt be more opportunities in the future. We just had our annual family picture photo shoot, and the results were disastrous. I’m thinking this year’s holiday card may be a cartoon drawing by my kids…
