The Art Competition

Zzzzzzzz… “Make sure you tell her to eat well to survive through this,” I heard someone in the background call out.

Today there was a Digital Art competition in Aambyville to allow the restless kids at home a ‘healthy’ outlet. I sneaked a look at my work email before opening the Zoom window again.

Harry took the stage (or the webcam window), “our first picture, the hunchback of Notre Dame. The second, uhh… a bunch of squiggles, the third picture…” he froze, mouth half open.

Judging the competition has been postponed to next Thursday due to connectivity issues.

    1. It was a kid’s competition so I don’t think there were any censorship issues.

  15. LOL you had me at a “bunch of squiggles”. That would probably be me if I ever had to do an art show. And I don’t even want to know what the next thing would have been if not for the “technical difficulties.”
