Here's the first line "Good girls don't walk with boys ..."
Today is also a the day to write down how you broke the rules.... For other bloggers participating drop by ali cross's blog here.
As a guy who rarely breaks the rules, I found I had to strain my brain to come up with an answer to this.
Every autumn during grade school our school district had a poster contest. Every year I'd enter and come in second or third never winning that coveted trophy for myself. In my last year I needed to do something drastic, after all this was my final year to win and I had to!
I decided to "bend" the rules and do a three dimensional peace. Well, it still was on poster board .... I used multi media and did this wacky sculptural thing. My peers grumbled, stating it wasn't a poster at all and that I should be disqualified. Luckily my teacher at the time thought it was amazing and entered it.
To my surprise and delight I WON! I was thrilled. And when I was awarded my prize at the assembly a week later they handed me, not the trophy I so longed for, BUT, a first place blue ribbon. I was outraged! I croaked out a thank you and whispered to the principal what happened to my trophy. She flushed a bit and whispered back, "Budget cuts."
I still have the faded blue ribbon. LOL. Oh, well, that's life!
What's you favorite rule-breaking story? I'd love to know.
Have a great Tuesday everyone and don't forget to buy your copy of POSSESSION!
