Second place, baby!
I’ve never won a contest before. Finally after three years of practice, I won. This is exciting.
Yesterday at 3:30 in the afternoon, I got the email saying I won second place:
Congratulations! Your photo, “Bullfrog Sitting in the Water, Peering Eerily at Passersby” was selected as the Second Place Winner in our Splendor of Spring photo contest!
I was really disappointed for a week because the website said that the winners would be chosen by June 30. It had been a week, and I’d gotten no email. Then, when I wasn’t expecting to get one, and email showed up in my inbox. I read the subject and I was stunned. So I get to go pick up my prize now.
Goodness, I won.
