I Can't Believe It----I Have Entered a Blog Contest

The wonderful Anna Leffler of

has proposed a contest with the challenge being the best answer to the ever intriguing question, "Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road"?
 Don't ask me why this made me catch fire, but ignite me it did and I simply had to tap out an entry with my answer.  Frankly no one will be more puzzled by my choice of answers than I am and, similarly, no one will be more surprised than I am at the form in which I chose to present my entry.

This was truly one of those cases in which the Muse took over the controls and the seized the use of my fingers and keyboard and only let me see what I had written after it was finished.  This has happened to me a number of times in my writing "career" and it never ceases to amaze and delight me.  Consequently, I was thrilled and delighted with my entry and wish I could say that the fully conscious "I"  had written it.  However, if I win I will  not hesitate to take full credit for it.

I am not going to reveal my entry until after the contest closes on Friday sometime, but I encourage all of you brilliant, charming and amusing folks to go to the above link and enter the contest too.  I welcome competition.  (I think that is a bare-faced lie, but I want Anna's contest to be a smashing success......... she deserves it.) so get out of here at once (after you leave a comment, of course) and go compete!


  1. It sounds like a contest that will produce answers that will need to be their own book. Thanks for being willing to point it out.

  2. I have no desire to enter, mostly because the muse hasn't sat on my shoulder in quite a while and also because I have chickens and am quite sure that chickens rarely DO cross the road which is why you hardly ever see a roadkill chicken. See what I mean about the muse?
    Go, Lo, Go! Win!

  3. Oh crud. This will be fun to watch. What is the prize?

  4. One way or another, this is something I've got to see. I know you as someone who regularly turns "a bird got into my house" and "scruffy kitten" into drama. So ... chickens now. And muse. I can hardly wait, win or not. (You will be thrilled to hear that the oh-so-serioso philosopher is stymied by the question, btw. LOL.)

  5. I am so anxious to see your entry!!! There are some wonderful bloggers, fantastic bloggers, but,,,,,never mind,,I am a bit prejudiced.

  6. I really don't think I can compete with you..Can't wait for your entry to appear..hurry, hurry!
