I couldn’t believe my eyes. The winning submission was only a few words off from mine. How can changing a few words make it a winner over mine? I sat there reading and rereading the submissions with a complete absence of thought due to disgust. Or should anger be the appropriate emotion? How could the judges not notice that it was a copy?
My inner child wants to act on the anger and file a complaint. The adult in me says to let it go. Chalk it up to a life lesson that not everyone plays fair.
I wanted to go with my adult side. It’s not as if it really matters. It’s a silly competition for fun.
But then again, being passive-aggressive can be just as fun.

PS. I only titled this so that the song would get stuck in your head :)
PSS. Woah, woah, woah, feelings!
