The Week contest
This week’s question: A Florida woman who recently celebrated her 105th birthday has confessed that she has no idea how she reached such an old age, because she spent much of her life partying, drinking, gambling, and smoking. If Helen Granier were to write a book on how to live a long, bad habit–filled life, what could she title it?
Last week’s contest: Thomas J. Mace-Archer-Mills Esq., an expert on the royal family with a posh English accent, has been outed as Tommy Muscatello from upstate New York. If Muscatello, who says he “identifies” as British and is now “who I am supposed to be,” were to write a book about his transformation, what should it be titled?
THE WINNER: “Gone With the Windsors” Laurel Rose, Pittsburgh
SECOND PLACE: “Britamorphosis” Catherine Pomiecko, Natick, Mass.
THIRD PLACE: “The Great British Faking Show” Karen Russell, Arlington, Mass.
