2085. Like a pig in muck

Wow! I’ve just been awarded the “I’m the Only One in the World to Get this Award” Award! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you to the anonymous benefactor. It didn’t come via email or via any social media. It didn’t come via a blog. It came via traditional mail post; or if it didn’t it could well have.

There are a whole lot of responsibilities that come with this Award – like nominating ten more bloggers but not telling any of them who you are. In fact it should be so secret that it’s recommended that you don’t even tell the people you have nominated. If you’re reading this, you know who you are.

I also have to answer heaps of questions, like “How does one do that?” and “What are those things made of?” and “Tell us something you don’t know”. They’re the type of questions that Oprah would ask.

One of my favourite questions is: “How on earth do you think of something sensible to say every day on your blog?” It’s not easy, I can tell you. Some people post absolute claptrap. Pure hokum! Hooey! They seem to revel in wasting people’s time. Not so I. And so say all of us, and so say all of us, for he’s a jolly good fellow. Hip Hip Hooray!

It certainly feels surreal to get this Award. I keep pinching myself. It’s very hard to think straight when one is so excited.

To add to the excitement I’m expecting today (ordered online) some Yorkshire Tea bags (Yorkshire tea – a brand – being the only tea we drink – morning, noon, and night).

My life is filled with happiness and this Award is the icing on the cake. I’m as happy as a pig in muck.

    This is great satire! It gave me a lot of ideas for future posts. I’ve been meaning to satirise some of the blogging trends but you’ve beaten me to it!

    You should make a new secret award…”A pig in muck” award.

    How do you New Zealanders make your tea? You know how us Americans in the southern region make our tea.

      We make our tea correctly in a teapot and leave it to drawer. We then pour it bit by bit into each cup until each cup is full. We don’t use our pinkie to hold the cup like the Queen of England. (You have to remember that the “Pinkie” in New Zealand is not the little finger.

        I won’t ask about the pinkie… yes but do you sweeten it? You drink it warm right?
        We don’t…we brew it, sweeten it, and pour it over ice.
        I’ve seen the British dip tea bags over and over in their tea…

      I did change an impolite word (s**t) to “muck”. That probably accounts for part of my popularity.
      Hope you’re ok – of course you are – but had a funny feeling you lived near Boulder…

        Doing well. I live in Colorado Springs which is about an hour and a half south. Thanks for thinking of me, though. I appreciate that you switch out the impolite words, it makes it easier for me to recommend you.
