CREAMY CREATION CONTEST
The Colorado Book Festival and Bonnie Brae Ice Cream have joined forces to celebrate the book festival by launching a
“Creamy Creation Contest.” Bonnie Brae has developed a new flavor for patrons to taste and determine the best name for
Let Me Tell You the Story of a Word
The Colorado Book Festival planners conferred
They created a kickoff event about words
How words started, and how meanings blurred
Some fell out of fashion. No longer heard.
We know someone made up every word we say
So the Festival thought up a tasty way
to bring a completely new word into play.
A new ice cream flavor! So they called Bonnie Brae.
Bob and Ken (the owners) invented a winter’s delight
That’s been sampled and tasted at many a site
Hundreds of names entered, meant to inspire and excite.
And now I’ll tell you the new word. I let it take flight…
Ah… but before I do….there are some other words to mention.
