********************I enjoy a good challenge. A good challenge keeps me on my toes and makes me think. Because of that, when I came across The Saturday Comeback Challenge, I just knew that I had to participate and see if I could "feel the exhilaration of victory".
In a nutshell, the challenge is to come up with a witty comeback to ten different headlines or snippets from dating profiles. Nothing profane or sexually explicit is allowed and something a little more creative than "I know I am but what are you?" is probably needed! Having read a dating profile or two myself in the past few years and always having some smart-aleck remark pop into my mind, this sounded like something that was right up my alley. But could I be funny enough to win?? Would I be up to the challenge??
In reading over some of the past Challenges, it looked like it was going to be pretty tough but if there's one thing that the people in my family like to think we are it's quick with a good comeback. My youngest brother has me beat hands down in the "wit" department but I can occasionally come back with a good retort or two so I thought I would put that to the test.
Lo and behold I actually managed to WIN the Challenge and now I am the proud owner of this cool "badge" to post on my website! Woo-hoo! And General Patton was right, it is quite exhilarating to be victorious - even if it's not what one might consider a "major" challenge.
