Oh, wait. This is a holiday weekend.

by Barbara Westwood Diehl

And you're supposed to be having fun, right? Grilling shish kebabs. Playing croquet with the kids. Quaffing a couple of cold ones . . .

Unless trimming the fat from your prose and shopping for elegant nouns and verbs is your idea of fun.

And yes, for some of us, that actually is our idea of fun.

So we're extending the "Games" theme contest category deadline for an additional 24 hours: June 1, 11:59 p.m.

So go ahead and play another round if you want. Enjoy! Then maybe you can write about it.
