I'm rarely a winner. Well, except if you count getting a job, but I didn't think of that as winning, really. It was more like being rescued from a life of abject poverty. Anyway, the few things I've won -- a piano concerto competition, an essay contest here and there -- I can count on one hand (and I'm not counting fellowships because like jobs, those are about livelihood. Not that I've won a ton of those, either). Most importantly, I have never won anything frivolous or fun before.
But now I finally have. I've won the silly caption contest on Blogging the Renaissance!
I'm so excited. Here's the early modern woodcut, with my caption: Caption Contest No. 2
Now, if only I could "win" a book contract . . .
