    Default Majority Rules - A Contest

    Thought I'd try a little something different here. I'm still stuck in the house with this virus and need some fun. (Please, friends, help me think about something besides a thermometer, juice boxes, and Nickelodeon!)

    Here are the rules:

    1. To play, you must submit a question for the game to me by PM. It can be a puzzle, an interpretation of something, or a request for some sort of writing. You choose.

    2. All players will, at the end of the game, submit their votes to me by PM for their choice of winner.

    3. To earn a vote, you must have answered each of the questions.

    4. You may not vote for yourself.

    5. There will be no whining about the lack of a prize. I'll see if C3 or Sue can give the winner a few of my twollars, unless Mimi wants to donate some cookies. If you would like to cough up some reward, let me know. I'll send you some Delsym in exchange.

    Hadn't thought of that... I'll make you some cookies if you win. Or better yet for you, I'll get Tech Support to make you some. Deal?

    Default QUESTION 1 - Majority Rules

    Question 1 - Majority Rules

    Go to one of the two poetry threads in the Creative Corner and choose a poem. Read it. Write a letter to the author explaining how it affects you. Try to be clear in your letter how you interpret the poem. Please include a link to the poem so that we can read it too.

    Good luck everybody!

    Gabi's right - pm me your questions now and votes later, but post your answers so that we can all judge.

    OK..I will go first

    LadyHope Posted:

    One too many mouths to feed has brought me to my knees
    But every time I think I failed they smile back at me

    One too many voices question all I ever knew
    But every time I preach to them they teach me something too

    One too many school supplies for me to buy for all
    But every time I fill the need I add a picture to my wall

    One too many birthday cakes to bake throughout the year
    But every time I see them gleam it brings another tear

    One too many they all say but little do they know
    That every time I feel I'm loved it came to me eight fold


    Dear Ladyhope,

    The first time I read this poem I cried. It reminded me of when I was growing up, what my mom must have been going thru behind closed doors. After my dad died, it left my mom with me and my sister. Needless to say there wasn't much money when I was younger. She tried her best not to let it show, but it was obvious she was struggling to provide for us. Now that I look back on it, there were times when she made dinner for us and she ate nothing. Down the road she met my stepdad and we were better off than most. Anyway...your poem showed me what my mom's perspective was during those tough years! After reading your poem that first time I called my mom crying thanking her for the great job she did providing for us when times for tough. Thank you for sharing that poem with us! It added a little something special to my relationship with my mom!

    Now I know why Kat was always so happy when I posted! Thanks, Net, for starting us off so eloquently. I'll post Net's logic puzzle for question 2 in a few days.

    Default Question 1 -- Majority Rules

    Dear Carol,

    You expressed so much better than I can the conglomeration in my memories of tweleve (a coincidence, but true) years of tumors, surgeries, losses and medical treatments. "Some lined the walls for their turn to see. I guess I was a special case with my history." brought back a detachment that I found chilling. While your poem sounds personal, it also gets to the heart of the impersonality that sometimes pervades modern medicine. I did find the ending something of a surprise, and have come back to read it again and again, and still am pondering "scarred for life, it never ends."
