I'm just like the father in one of my favorite christmas movies, "A Christmas Story." You remember the movie? The father is always entering sweepstakes and contests just in the hopes of winning something special...just once. Finally, the day arrives that he receives a special delivery from a prize department. He can't believe it! It finally paid off! He rips open the box, panting with anticipation, pulls the prize out and stares in gratitude and amazement.
"What is it?" his wife asks.
"It's an AWARD!" he shouts, clinging feverishly to the prize...a shapely, woman's leg, clad in a fishnet stocking and a black stiletto. But WAIT...it's not just a beautiful leg, it's a LAMP! Which he quickly places in the living room, facing the street, for all the world to see. His prize.
My family and I still quote that line every chance we get. It never gets old. "It's an AWARD!" we shout! And you'd be surprised at the many situations that you can use a line like that. Really. Amazed.
So in return for this beautiful award, I'll answer the questions below in one word or less and pass it on.
I'd like to thank the academy, God, my family...sorry, got lost there for a minute.
I need to pass this on to five people, post on their blog to let them know I left this award, and then I need to answer a list of questions in ONE word. And they they will answer these same questions and pass the award on to five others.
