Thanks for your patience, Incorrigible tweeps! I have been a busy bee these last few weeks and have been looking forward to the day when I could sit down and choose the WINNERS of the #Incorrigible Twitter contest.
And, guess what? Today is that day!
Now, let me just say: you guys have some seriously incorrigible habits. It made me feel good to know, for example, that my secret urge to buy trashy magazines with headlines like “FORTY WAYS TO LEAVE HIM DAZED AND WONDERING” or “DOMINATE YOUR MUFFIN TOP BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE” at the supermarket checkout line and read them cover to cover while lying in bed eating cookies does not even come close to the shocking behavior revealed herein.
It wasn’t easy, but I’ve selected five winners and one Grand Prize winner. Winners will get a button that says “I’m Incorrigible.” The Grand Prize winner gets a button plus a signed ARC of The Hidden Gallery, book II in the Incorrigible Children series.
Winners, you are just impossible! Please email me at mw@MaryroseWood.com with a mailing address where I can send your prize. If you happen to be a kid, ask the Grownup In Charge before you send me your mailing address, okay?
AND THE WINNERS ARE….
1) Most #incorrigible spelling and grammar-related tweet
A competitive category. I admit that I was impressed by @LizzieKFoley’s entry:
But the winner is @bythebrooks, who confessed:
I write on public signs and fix the grammar mistakes. #incorrigible
Excellent! Keep up the good work, @bythebrooks!
2) Most #incorrigible food-related tweet
This was the toughest category by far. I hate to say it, but so many of you are freaks about food. Some of you eat cold pepperoni in bed. Some of you eat muffins with spoons. Some of you take the last bite without even asking if other people want it. You also steal M&Ms and hide your kids’ chocolate in the laundry room. For shame! I had to narrow it down to three finalists before I could choose a winner.
Oh, yeah! Stovetop Stuffing. You win, @Jakethegirl!
3) Most #incorrigible Harry-Potter related tweet
Only one entry in this category, but it’s a winner. Congrats to @basheemadory, (AKA The Tweep Who Lived), who asserts:
When you say "serious" I say "Black." #incorrigible
4) Most #incorrigible philosophical tweet
This one made me think very deep thoughts, and surely that is worth a button. You win, @martinkozicki, for sharing this:
Because I think funerals are funny, but clowns are sad. #incorrigible
5) Most #incorrigible teacher tweet
Do teachers text in class? According to my contest entries they do! Even so, the winner in this highly educational category is @amylovestrees, who says:
I allow my students to use swear words if they can find them in Shakespeare. #incorrigible
DRUMROLL!!! And the Grand Prize of a button plus signed Hidden Gallery ARC goes to…
Once again, it’s @bashmeedory, for this succinct gem:
I still play pokemon games and I'm 17. #incorrigible
Sweet! I will send prizes as soon as I get your mailing addresses. Congrats to all the winners!
