When you have been blogging awhile, you are bound to be given “awards.” These “awards” are, in all actuality, chain posts that float from blogger to blogger, forcing others to give interesting facts about themselves before they pass along the assignment.
These awards never carry any real sort of acknowledgement. There is no cash prize and you don’t receive a brand new Dodge Charger for winning one. I have never been invited to the White House because of an award which is a major bummer. It’s not a real award unless the President cares. (Slightly off subject, but Barack, if you’re reading this, we should totally grab dinner sometime. Just don’t invite Michelle because I really hate eating healthy.)
These nominations seem to come quite frequently.
Sometimes there are some that come through, though, that are much more enjoyable. One of these came across my computer just the other day. My friend over at Hobbling Around had created her own award called the “No Rules Best Liar Award.” This award does not require you to do anything. It is all optional, thus being my favorite award because I am very lazy.
The award itself is also very simple and very fun. You are to give six facts. Three are true. Three are big fat lies. People who read this are supposed to guess which three are big fat lies. Ideally, since this is the “Best Liar Award,” people will not be able to guess because you are officially an award winning liar.
Below are my six facts. Feel free to guess which are true… IF YOU DARE!!!
1. As a fifth grader, I invented a rabbit feeder for my pet rabbit. His name was Pete and he was very soft and very rabbit-like, meaning he pooped a lot.
2. I have a strange weakness for tater tots. I love them and can’t get enough. If they’re soggy, though, I will murder someone.
3. My first musical album ever purchased was New Kids’ On The Block’s “Face the Music.” The song “Dirty Dawg” was the soundtrack to my life when I was seven.
4. I own a pair of cowboy boots, but never wear them outside of the house. They make me feel far too tall and I sound like a horse walking on pavement when I wear them.
5. I spent a full hour yesterday playing a smartphone game where you control a doughnut that flies through the air wearing a cape. I am not proud of this.
6. My great great great uncle was the creator of an early version of a blender that was operated with a handcrank. This was not the world’s most practical invention.
