Almost two years ago we had the Blogalike Contest here at the Search for Love in Manhattan, and now, in solemn commemoration of World Tuberculosis Day, we have another contest.

The dollar bill below played an important part in a recent event in my life.


Your task, should you choose to enter the contest, is to send me an email explaining what the event was and how the dollar bill was involved. Once the contest is closed, I will post all the answers, including the real one, and everybody can vote for the one they think is true (or perhaps which one they think is best/most interesting/most creative–I haven’t decided yet). The author of the explanation that receives the highest number of votes will win a gift card to Powells City of Books, unless that explanation happens to be the real one, in which case the gift card will go to the author of the explanation that receives the second-highest number of votes, since giving myself a gift card to Powells would be exercise in sophistry that would tax even my patience.

You need not write in the style of Faustus, M.D.

You must send me your entry by midnight on Friday, March 31. This gives you a week.

Good luck, and Godspeed.

    Ummm, did you change the picture on us?

    I’m filing a formal protest. 🙂

  2. Yes, I changed the picture, because the original version of the contest (the first photo, for those of you who didn’t see it, had four dollar bills, one of which was the one pictured above) was too confusing and guessing which dollar bill it was added a level of uninteresting complexity to the challenge.

    It was obvious that the dollar bill in the updated picture was the one that was important, anyway. The other dollar bills were embarrassed at the transparency of their pretense. I hope you found a good home for them.

    God, I love tuberculosis.

    How could it have been confusing? Obviously, it was the dollar bill that didn’t have any folder corners. And I had actually worked that into my explaination!

    *sigh* Back to the drawing board…
