And the 1st Prize goes to:

whose entry read:

The pen I use has a fine line and a satisfying scratch, balm after a day of clicks and scrolls. To my aunt for the book I’ve wanted. To my brother for the silly socks. A tiny body climbs into my lap and stills. I’ve no card big enough.

It’s a truly outstanding story. And the others were delightful. (You can reread them here, scroll down to comments.) Thanks to all.

Should we do a similar contest in December on the topic of Gifts?
Let us know. If we hear positive response, we’ll announce it later this week.
