Winning First Place, Finally

I’ve won second and third place and been a finalist in different writing contests. But that first place has always been elusive.

My husband promised to make me a oak shelf for my first trophy with the first place win.

Guess what? I finally won first place.

No trophy. Not with this win.

I guess that means no oak shelf, too.
