Fifth Annual Freudian Slips Irony Oscar
The pedigree nominees for the best short story in 2008 on this Freudian Slips blog included Epiphany Speaking, Winning One for the Whimper, Girl Interupted, Cutting Tyler a Break, and Kelly's Hero.
The ballots have been counted without a single hanging chad. Before the winner is announced let me just say that voting set an all-time record high. Commentary and votes flooded in like a ticker tape parade. My email inbox filled with sizeable messages like no blog story before it.
The landslide winner of the Fifth Annual Freudian Slips Irony Oscar is: Girl Interrupted, a poignant tale about a handicapped woman trying to create a life of her own late in life itself.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to seeing everyone next year.
