Senior Superlatives

Anyone who knew Ginny knew that she was not at all quixotic. If anything, she felt a lot of antipathy toward those she thought were unrealistically idealistic. And she was never shy about expressing her animosity for her more Pollyanna-like classmates.

So when Ginny didn’t win the Most Likely to Succeed award in the high school’s Senior Superlatives contest, she was totally unperturbed.

But given Ginny’s cynicism and aloofness, she was shocked and surprised — as was everyone else in her school — when she received the trophy as Most Congenial.

    You never know how other’s see you – or how they will vote.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I wonder, too, how freely expressing her acrimony gets her “Miss Congenial.” The whole school must have been in on that one. 😉

    “Most Congenial” is the award given to someone who never wins anything. I think it’s the Oscar’s way of saying ‘screw you.’
