The Chinese Fortune Cookie Caper Poll Results

in Enough with the crazy polls already

Are you enjoying these polls? I am. For one thing they are easy, for another I’m learning a lot! Here are the latest results.

There were only two comments on this poll:

“The first one or possibly the last.” from Flemington, USA.

“The bathroom window is such a non sequitur, you just HAVE to find out what spurred it!” from Germany. (Have I said how much it tickles me to have international comments on my blog? I feel so famous.)

The most popular first line for this story:

With 63% of the vote –

My mother had two rules when eating out, use basic table manners and never leave through the bathroom window.

With 25.9% of the vote –

My mother always said if you’re going to do something exceedingly stupid make sure you don’t have an audience first.

With 7.4% of the vote –

Did you ever have one of those days when it probably would have been better if you’d just stayed in bed?

and finally with 3.7% of the vote –

I was handcuffed to a hard wooden bench, dripping mud on the floor.

This time I took your advice and used the most popular line. It was the winner by a landslide, for one, and for two it was the one I liked best. So thanks for the help, y’all.

The next poll is easier. I just want to know if you like taking the polls. A simple yes or no answer with the option for comments. Easy peasey. And it will help me to decide if the whole poll thing is working for you, or if it’s a drag. It’s definitely working for me, and the next thing I’m thinking of putting up is a redesigned set of covers for the Bree MacGowan series, and Titles for the next book. (Bree Book that is. I’m not sure if Bree or Clara will be the first out of the gate at this point.) Anyway, take the poll, I’ll show the results!

With any luck the poll will come up this time with no problems – but if you don’t see the poll then please let me know!


Edited to add: Uh, well you have to actually activate the survey for it to work. Duh! (also need to turn the old one off.) Should be working now people!

Hi, no I couldn’t see a poll either. But if there on opening lines I’m happy to throw in my two cents worth.

I’m so glad they both commented because I wasn’t getting a poll at first (it’s there now) and I was going to have to admit to being confused about the polls. Voting now… There, done. Whew.

Umm, do I LIKE giving my opinion?? Do you really need to even ASK that question?? (insert huge teen-age eye roll here)

So, no, it’s not showing up, but if it does and I’m not back, just add another yes vote for me. 😀

LOL! J.D. and I actually write this out in texts…..

“disappointed Mom face”

“huge exasperated Son eye-roll”

I see no poll this time. But my answer to the poll question is:
YES! I love giving my opinion. EVERYone should have a wee bit of ME to run with. 😉
