WE HAVE A WINNER.
Jen Cox was the first to identify this paragraph:
“Annoying boy, you’ve messed up my dream. I had drifted off into a violet fog and discovered my childhood again. There were sparkling gates and bejeweled flowers. If I shut my eyes, I’ll go back there.”
It’s a paragraph from one of my favorite children’s books: Tikki Tikki Tembo.
Except that I’d rewritten it. She recognized it even though *this* is the real paragraph:
“Miserable child, you disturb my dream. I had floated into a purple mist and found my youth again. There were glittering gateways and jeweled blossoms. If I close my eyes perhaps I will again return.”Jul182010
