Sadly, once again, I did not win. One of my entries did come
from an exchange involving Dorothy Heydt. Personally, I thought it
was pretty good/bad, but the judges did not agree. It was:
"I am going to die soon anyway and might as well enjoy my going",
declaimed the wealthy and fading diabetic as she lifted the sweet
spoonful of ginger-lemon pudding to her mouth while the heir apparent
to her estate wondered sourly about the questions he would be facing
in probate court.
Maybe next year.
