Once a month, Dictionary.com challenges its followers to write a #SuperShortStory in less than 140 characters using its word of the day. I participated in the June 30 challenge and I WON! Free iPod for me and a wonderful surprise on Canada’s birthday.

The word of the day was rident, which means laughing, smiling, cheerful.

Here is my submission:

“You’ve puzzled out the greatest secret of our existence! Where is your joy, your rident expression?” “With my innocence.”

Okay… it’s a bit dramatic, but my triumph will not be contained.

Later, readers.
