When I saw this on Twitter it cracked me up completely.
Then I realized it was a perfect sentence for a Mad Libs kind of contest.
In honor of the author, think of it as Lipp-Libs!
Here's the contest: replace "missing credit card" with a new three word phrase, and "the filter in the dishwasher" with a location (word count not specified.)
Post in the comment column of this blog post.
Contest opens at 7am.
Contest closes around 7pm.
All are Eastern Daylight Time zone.
Prize? OF COURSE!
The new Jeff Somers writing book of course!
Oops too late; contest closed!
Results on Thursday cause I'm slothing about with Her Grace; my time with her is ending this weekend and I will be furribly deprived after Saturday.
