I won a contest....


...Got 4th place.
And I was excited.
Very much so.
Until...
Ten.
Number ten.
Only ten.
And me the fourth.
Caitlin the fourth.
Caitlin the "not-even-good-enough-to-get-a-medal".
Caitlin the "you're-only-good-when-compared-with-nine-other-people".
That's me.
Me.
Just a little above average.
Good...but not good enough.
Ten.
Only ten.
And me the fourth.
Caitlin the fourth...
...never the first, never the best.

Just average...just good enough to be fooled.

Think about the ones who got 10th, 9th, 8th, 7th, 6th, and 5th?

I know, it was a pretty ungrateful response to winning. Rather pathetic but I just had to bleed a little and this helped. *smile*
