Write a Limerick, Win a Diamond…

From the guys over at the Mervis Diamonds Blog, you can now win a diamond for writing a limerick:

Tell us your stories of love, dating, and diamonds in the District and you can win a diamond pendant! Did you meet your true love under the cherry blossoms? Did she say yes right after a spending bill passed? Was the ring presented at Ben’s on a half-smoke with everything?

The best limerick wins a $500 diamond pendant! The winning entry will be funny, clever, romantic and include the flavor of DC.

May I humbly present my entry?

There once was a fella named Mervis
Who hocks the stones most imperv’ous
He sold me a rock
and a ring from his stock
and now we’re engag’d and pretty nervous!

Not bad for a first attempt, I guess. Okay, yeah it sucks. Sorry.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
