The Contest

I know I just said, only about an hour and a half ago, that the news about the baby's gender is probably going to come in the form of a boring blog delivery.

Turns out, on second thought, I'm not okay with that. Boring is not an option.

So I sat down tonight and spent a whopping 6 minutes writing two poems. When I finished, I was pretty proud of them. Dale, ever my unfailing supporter, scoffed. So I challenged him to come up with something better. And he did (or at least HE thinks he did).

Then I thought it would be fun to have a contest to see whose poem you all think is best! So, for those of you that are reading this, you have to promise me that you'll VOTE (via comment) tomorrow. Whether you are a regular commenter or not (most of you aren't, since I only get like 2 comments a month).

So even those of you that read my blog posts through the email that is force-fed to you every morning, YOU STILL MUST VOTE. In the email, click on the link to the actual blog (it will say "Herman Nation" and probably be a different color font), and scroll to the bottom of the post where it says "X Observations". Click on that link! I promise it's not hard.

And since Dale says that he doesn't have as many friends that read my blog, I'm not allowed to tell you who wrote which poem. Dale says that would sway the vote in my favor. I'm confident that it's not going to matter, so I'm willing to oblige.

Obviously the best part of the poems is that they will reveal the baby's gender! Oh, how exciting!!!

Tune in tomorrow...
