The votes are in and there’s a winner!
But first I must say that you voters are a most unruly lot. You were asked to pick the best fictional story explaining my broken ankle. So what did many of you do?
You chose several. Yegads! In those cases, I chose the first one you mentioned.
Then some of you voted, but also gave your heart’s choice. What kind of voting is that, I ask you? (Hilarious, actually.)
So thanks for the laughs, and the votes.
The runners-up are:
2: #30 by Canadian Playwright Rex Deverell whose submission could indeed make a good play.
3: #25 by MT McGuire. The votes were spread over her several submissions, so she gets honourable mention.
And the winner is:
“The doctor called to tell me the pregnancy test was positive and I just passed clean out!” By American Writer-Physician Victo Dolore, who got a whopping 7 votes. That’s impressive because there were 30 entries, and every one of them had their admirers.
**Victo**, I will contact you directly for your mailing address and your choice of either A Good Home or An Honest House.
Thanks to everyone for entering and voting. You made me laugh: great medicine in a painful time.
p.s. I got the news last week: NO surgery required. The bones are healing. Hooray!
