Children’s author and blogger, Susanna Leonard Hill, is in the third year of her Valentine’s Day contest, affectionately known as “Valentiny.” The tiny part is for the tiny humans your story should be written for and because of the tiny word count…only 214 words or less! This year’s entries must include a character who is hopeful. Here is my entry:
Hoping for Love
By Susanne Whitehouse
“I have something to tell you.”
“Okay … ”
“I think I’m in love with you.”
“Oh, wow. Are you sure?”
“But you’re a gorilla and I’m … ”
“Beautiful? Yellow? Appealing?”
“Well, yes. But … I’m not sure you can be in love with a piece of fruit.”
“Oh. Then maybe what I’m feeling is … ”
“Don’t say it.”

And for fun, here‘s my entry into the Valentiny contest from two years ago.
LOL! , a happy ending for gorilla, not so much for banana. Love your wordplay! Good luck!

Poor banana. Funny story.
Clever!! I love it 🙂
Funny! 🙂 I wish you well with this story.
I’m feeling hunger now too. =) Good luck!
Ha! I know my 6 yo certainly feels that way about bananas. Good luck 🙂
Hi Susanne … yellow and delicious and delightful for a short while – clever story – well done. Cheers Hilary
Bahaha, sometimes I think I’m in love with certain foods, lol. This is just too funny. Great job! 🙂
Hahaha, Susanne! You made me laugh! Cute story that works out pretty well for the gorilla, but oh, poor banana! 🙂 Thanks so much for joining in the contest fun!
