Caption This!

I decided to borrow an idea from a fellow blogger.

Yes, it's a caption contest! And there will be a prize. In fact, you can choose from 4 of them.

Since my sister and I have birthdays coming up in April, I thought I'd use this photo I found of the two of us from about 25 years ago. Our birthdays are two days apart so we always used to celebrate both of them on the same day.

Here's what you have to do: Write a caption telling what either my sister (on the left) or I (on the right) is thinking. Be creative, be witty. If you want, you can write what both of us are thinking (within one comment). Post your caption in the comments section. Only one caption idea per person. I'll let it run for 2 weeks so you have until March 25th. Good luck!

Oh, and if two people happen to come up with the same caption and it turns out to be the one I like best, the person who posted it first will be the one who wins.

Prize is a CHOICE between FOUR books in my book collection (all in good condition):

1. I'd Rather Be Writing (by Marcia Golub) (a guide to finding more time, getting organized, completing more projects and having more fun.) Non-fiction hardcover

2. How to Start and Run a Writing & Editing Business by Herman Holtz (NF paperback)

3. Open House (by Elizabeth Berg) (hardcover novel described as "a love story about what can blossom between a man and a woman, and within a woman herself.")

4. How to Write Tales of Horror, Fantasy & Science Fiction ( a paperback non-fiction book by the masters of speculative fiction: Ray Bradbury, Dean Koontz, Marion Zimmer Bradley and others.)


  1. Kathy, I'm going with your sister. Her thought is
    "Why is Kathy's cake bigger than mine?" LOL

  2. Ooh! So fun!

    Sister thinks, while gritting teeth: Her cake's bigger than mine.

    Kathy thinks: Yes! My cake's bigger than hers!

    Happy (early) Birthday! And PS. I love that wallpaper.

  3. Jessica, ROFL! Great minds think alike. At the same time!

  4. Hmm...I'll have to think about this and get back to you.

  5. You're both thinking, "FOUR candles? I'm older than that!"


  6. Ha ha! You're all doing great so far.

    This is gonna be fun.

    And Janna, about that wallpaper...yup. We had quite interesting wallpaper all over our house. I had big bright flowers with an orange background in my bedroom.

  7. Kathy - "I am sooo going to eat her cake too."

    Kathy's sister - "I'm smashing her cake in her face if she goes for mine."

    By the way, how did the combined party thing work out year after year. I see you each got your own cake. Did you ever have to share gifts? Cause that would suck.

  8. You people are cracking me up!

    Matt: I must be honest and tell you I did not really like having a combined birthday party. I have 2 other sisters. One has a birthday in March, the other at the end of April. I felt they got to have their own special day, but I always had to share mine. That tends to make you feel less special.

    No, never had to share gifts. Just the day.

  9. One of my sisters and I always had to share birthday parties. Our birthdays were two days apart and we were two years apart in age. I liked it, she hated it. We're best of friends now and don't fight over who gets the rose on the cake. :D

    Okay, caption for that photo. You're both thinking: "We're SO eighties!"

    (It's all I can come up with, Kathy!)

    --"stormie" from AW :)

  10. Anne, my sister and I are eight years apart but two days apart in birthdays.

    We always had separate cakes. My mother did a lot of cake baking!

    Thanks for playing!

  11. There's only one non-rude one I can think of:

    Kathy: "If I close my eyes, I'M THE ONLY BIRTHDAY GIRL. Ahhhhh..."

    Kathy's sister: "Aim for her candles first, then mine."

  12. While Kathy is busy making her wish/sneeze, Kathy's sister wonders if she can indeed bend the laws of physics and stuff both cakes in her mouth before those eyes open back up.

    Ack! Sorry--not sure who's kathy in the picture!
    Great blog post!
