Pretty Pears

Have I ever mentioned that I’m frequently tardy? Yep, late again … but this time, I swear, it wasn’t my fault …

Even though I walked in at the tail-end of the Miss. Pear Fest competition, the gracious hosts allowed me to participate. I didn’t have time to check my look, so my black lace twirly skirt, sassy pink top, and coordinating wide-brimmed hat would have to see me through … along with my natural charm of course. There was no time to get nervous. In fact, there was barely enough time to adjust my best pair before someone handed me a microphone.

“Theresa, why do you want to be Miss. Best Pear 2005?” said the handsome microphone man.

That seemed like an obvious question, but I hadn’t prepared an answer. I had to shoot from my ample hip, “Ummm… because I wrote a poem in honor of the happy day.”

There were chuckles and applause as I quickly composed …

“There once was this Cat who lived in a Shoe
He moved to Goosetown and knew not what to do
The neighbors all said, “Hey Man! Look at that tree.”
And that Crazy Cat threw a hella Par-tee”

On my right, bountiful curves made a purple sequined evening gown beautiful. The girl in the gown laughed and clapped with the crowd. Oh yes! I knew she had me beat. It was obvious that she wanted it more. By all rights, the crown belonged to her.

… and so it was.

Hey, there’s always next year.

Monty - This is as close to a beauty contest as this girl will ever get. Now, if it were an attitude contest, I'd be all over it!

I'd say You Wuz Robbed! but it doesn't sound like you were twisting your guts about it. Casual is as casual does, so I guess you had a good time!
