Cha-Ching! Nearly Seventy-Five Cents A Word

Congrats to my niece, Anna, for winning an Honorable Mention and $75 for her entry in the Boise Weekly Annual Fiction 101. Contestants submitted a fictional story using just 101 words. Anna cleverly uses Calculus in a brief story that would make any student at MIT or Cal Tech sigh. Relatives will notice that Anna's last name is misspelled.

BTW, there are lots of other good entries to read there. And it's perfect for those us us with a short atten--um, what was I talking about?

I can't pretend to be shocked that you'd have a highly intelligent niece. (And I'm going to *mostly* leave out my crack about that being the way it is with girls.)

Love the idea of positive infinity!
