Apparently my self-esteem is not great enough, 5 a.m. pre-coffee is never a good time to blog, and one should always double-check one's work because...
I seem to have missed the incredibly obvious fact that TWO separate people each gave me perfect posts for two different posts this month.
Color me prostrate with surprise and gratitude.
I am floored by the honor and my idiocy, all at once. Some people would lay down and die to walk out of a bathroom with skirt stuck in hose. I'd just laugh ho ho ho. But to goof like this? Mortified. Positively mortified. This is my vanity; I admit it fully.
Oh didn't I say I had a sick feeling I was messing up. Didn't I say I had been thought challenged lately?
I am reminded of Dan Quayle, "What a terrible thing to have lost one's mind. Or not to have a mind at all. How true that is."
Let us mourn the loss of my mind. I am truly amazed at the mush that was once a fully-functional brain, apparently as recently as last month no less. Moment of silence, please.
Okay. /spazz out
Luckily both ladies are understanding and with senses of humor. (Thank God.)
Let me try this one more time.
The absolutely brilliant (and kind, with a high tolerance for idiots) Misc Mum was kind enough to award my Kindergarten Orientation post with the Perfect Post Award.
------> One perfect post award
Then, if you can stand it---because seriously, I barely can myself, I mean...dudes, my family will not thank you for elevating my esteem this way. The kids have already asked like fifty times, "But why are you wearing that tiara Mom? And speaking with that funny accent? And why do we have to call you Queen Mum?" I got a second perfect post.
The estimable, clever, and also kind (with similar high tolerance for idiots) Kim of In Full Bloom awarded my Romeo Raccoon Must DIE! for this award, too.
------> Two perfect post awards
I was just feeling glad you guys had such an interest in woodland creatures gone bad, and were so understanding of a mom flipping out about sending her precious perfect baby (gasp sob) off to Big Scary Kindergarten (gasp sob) while putting on a Brave Face to aforementioned child (gasp sob).
Thank you, Kim. Thank you, Karen. Thanks ladies, for being so gracious and generous.
And before hitting publish, I am going to check my work.
P.S. In case you missed it: Next week's Hump Day Hmmm challenge
The Hump Day Hmm for next week. In order to placate my sister who says she's tired of me frying her brain every week (Girlfriend joined the JUNIOR LEAGUE...and she accuses ME of frying HER brain. KIDDING, hon. You know it. I'm all into the Sugarplum Fairy Sell-a-thon and crap next month.) I'm going a bit lighter next week. Take a topic, any topic, something that is weighing on you, bothering you, troubling you...and find the humor in it. Write about it from a humorous angle. It can be general or personal, just take a troubling topic and bring out the humor. FWIW, sarcasm counts. Letter style, onion style, Shakespeare style, prose, any style you want.
