So I have a few friends who, for different reasons, are having a hard time right now. If you are one of those folks, big hug to you right now.
One friend who is having a hard time e-mailed me today, and I e-mailed back with, "Let me know if there's anything I can do to help, including but not limited to telling you funny stories at my own expense."
It occurs to me that that is, like, 72 percent of what I have to offer to people generally, and, like, 97 percent of what I have to offer as a blogger.
So, first-ever City Mouse Country contest, in the interest of providing a steady source to those who need it.
If you know me personally, e-mail me (rather than using the "comments" link) with a funny story at my expense. Heck, e-mail me several, if you like.
I will post everything that is true and not too terrifying to put on the Internet where my parents will likely see it. The person who sends the best one will win a prize. "Best" will be determined by voting. Get submissions in by Sunday at 11:59 p.m., but I'll start running them as soon as I start getting them.
