Tiebreaker

**UPDATE

CONGRATULATIONS Digital Bath! You've won $175!

Here's what I've decided to do: anyone who entered THE GREAT EXPERIMENT this month can vote to break the tie. That's twelve of you including Crummy Mummy and Digital Bath. You don't have to vote, in fact, NOT voting could end up being strategic if you see there's going to be a tie again... Anyway, if there's another tie after that (because there's an even number of entrants) I'll make Serge vote and break the tie. How does that sound? Fair? I'll close voting when everyone's voted or by noon tomorrow Mountain Standard Time.

I vote for Digital Bath... Tough call though.

Love Crummy Mummy, but have to stick to my original vote - Digital Bath.

Definitely a tough call -- but I gotta give it to Digital Bath. So spare and raw.

I found it incredibly gracious that several writers voted for my story the first go around, including CrummyMummy. I cannot let that go unacknowledged. I vote for CrummyMummy.

Thank you, and thank you, Monica, for hosting such a great writing contest.

REALLY tough choice, but for its sheer emotional kapow, I have to choose Digital Bath's entry.

November 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea

So hard to choose (again!) but I'll have to go with my original vote: Digital Bath.

Crummymummy - you are one classy lady.

I have to agree with Andrea...Both excellent pieces, but my vote goes to Digital Bath for the emotional kapow as well. Great job and congrats to both bloggers!

I stick by my vote and vote for Digital Bath... The best writing should always win out - and it was simply beautiful.
