Hurry, hurry—don't be late!
The celebration is about to begin!
Last month Calef Brown challenged us to write a poem that tells the story of two anthropomorphized objects:
They can be an odd couple, close friends, mortal enemies, or meet each other for the first time. The poem can be about an adventure they have together, a conflict, a game they play, anything.
So how did we do?
You betcha! In fact, with so many zany pairings and clever stories, who's up for a well-deserved nap?

* Wakey! Wakey! *

It's time to take a look at the results.

(Never mind Sofia—she's just cranky.)
