The contest attracts hundreds (thousands even) of writers trying to get that one sentence that rings poetic, but also demonstrates power. It has pain-in-the-ass guidelines.I should have won last year, but Ray is hostile about usage. This year I was a little sloppy, but he went for it. And I need the money too; I'm getting ready to drive 3,000 miles north. Stop in to Ace Gillett's in Fort Collins, and see Ray about an 80s drink, like Sex on the Beach, or an Alabama Slammer. If he doesn't tell you to directly go fuck yourself, you're in the pink. I'm going in for my $100 and some of that pork belly that when you bite down-- it's like it was never there.
