A nice surprise to see this blog from the past. CWILL BC is an amazing group to belong to and this was such a great event. I have been a member for the past nine years. Thanks, Sally for bringing it out of the archives.

Sorry to send out two blog postings in a row, but I messed up!  The contest I entered was suppposed to be a story for children.  (guess I didn’t read the fine print).    The  Valentines Day Contest rules ask to submit a childrens poem or prose in no more than 200 words, about an unlikely couple.

Tea Party 

Sara made sure she didn’t drip while she poured the tea into miniature china cups.

She smiled at Theodore over her tea cup and fluttered her eye lashes, as she took a sip.

“Isn’t it a lovely day for a tea party in the garden?” she said as she looked around at the tulips pushing their way up out of the damp ground.

“Would you like a cookie?” Sara placed an Oreo on the side of her male companion’s plate.

She carefully unfolded her tiny napkin and placed it on her lap before she took a bite out her cookie.  She didn’t want to mess her lovely white pinafore she wore just for him.

“How was your day?” she asked her charming but silent partner. “Did you work hard at the office? I spent all day cleaning the house and baking these cookies.  I wanted you to have a special Valentine’s Day.”

Sara reached over and straightened Ted’s tie.

“I think someone needs a shave,” she said as she touched his fuzzy cheek.

“I sure love you Theodore and I hope we can get married one day soon. Maybe when I turn six.”

Teddy didn’t say a thing.
