This column was a collaborative effort between the Light’s Inga, and Laura Walcher, humor columnist at the Presidio Sentinel. It is running concurrently in both papers.
Laura: The thing we have in common, though, is that we never write fiction. Life provides. What worries me, though, is that, one of these days, she could have better material - I mean, just TAKE Olof, her husband; he’s such a source. (“Olof” - ? Hmm, to preserve the marriage, that name might be “fiction.”)
Inga: October 23 was the 2012 Press Club awards, and Laura was one of the first people I saw when I got there. I thought I had some strong contenders (the Humor category awards go to individual columns) but so did she. This year, I got first and she got second. I figured that if I couldn’t be a gracious loser, I could at least be a gracious winner. I gave her my heartiest (nyeh nyeh) congratulations.
Inga: As for the 2013 Press Club awards? Game on!
