You know the thrill of when you’ve entered a competition and you get the words “Well Done.”

I usually take that as a sign that I’ve I proceeded to scream and holler..jumping up and down jubilantly!

I mean..I’ve never won anything like this before..

I responded by saying..

Me?! What?!


Then a minute later I got this response:

You’re 2nd

SECOND?! What?!

In my excitement..I became confused “Oh 😦 Does that mean I lost?

Well duh it means you lost!! Since when was 2nd first?!

But you said ‘Well Done‘” I implored,

I said that to everyone” he responded.


My joy dimmed..I sat down and tried to figure out how someone could have possibly been faster than me..

I couldn’t.

I hung my head in shame.

“:( Oh well..” I said “Win some, lose some


2nd means there’s only one other person ahead of you that beat you to it..

There’s always next time I guess!

  1. to be second in my eyes is a great success! as you said there is only one ahead of you and considering all that entered, to have only one ahead is a huge success!!! congrats

  2. Yeah but you really just lost to one other person…. so you won over all the rest of ’em!

  3. Ooh, that sucks!!!! Everyone knows that when they start off by saying “We’d like to thank you…” that it’s going to be a case of “Thanks but no thanks.” That guys an amateur! 😉

  4. Well I’m going with the idea that only one person was ahead of you, and that, ain’t too shabby! And it leaves you with something to strive for! Congratulations!
