It's time for a BLOG CONTEST!
Ok, so you can't really get to Hawaii from winning my contest, but it got your attention, didn't it?
Here's the contest:
Write a haiku about Valentine's Day. There is a lot to say about this day. Tradition has it that it's a day for lovers, but I think it's become a day for Hallmark and Hershey's to make some serious cash. It's a day for kids to eat sugar and have a party at school with cute boxes decorated in construction paper hearts of pink, red and purple. It's a day that some single people loathe. Other singles I know love the day as it's a reason to have a big bash with lots of other single friends.
So, what's your take on the day? Put it in a haiku and write it into your comment. You are allowed as many haiku entries as you wish because once you write one, you will want to write another and another and, well, you get the idea.
A winner will be announced on February 14 (of course) and will receive two Regal movie tickets. The tickets can be used for whatever movie you and your Valentine wish to go to.
According to WikiHow: A haiku is a non-rhymed verse genre, conveying an image or feeling in two parts spread over three lines, usually with a seasonal reference. There are 5 syllables in the first sentence, 7 in the second and 5 again in the last sentence.
To get you started, here's my haiku:
Ten sticky fingers
Pass a sweet pink card to me
It says I love mom
