My buddy, Midlife Job Hunter has bestowed upon me an award that at first I wasn’t sure I wanted to accept. Should I beam with pride or run for the hills?
Zombies! I’m afraid of zombies! I was never one of those kids that liked scary movies. Oh sure, I went to the theatre because it was the cool thing to do but I sat with my eyes closed through the entire movie.
At 18 I went to see Amityville Horror. By today’s standards, fairly lame on the scare-o-meter. I stayed awake all night reading the bible. I was terrified to close my eyes. To this day, (and MHS will back me up on this) I have to watch something funny like an I Love Lucy rerun to take my mind off a disturbing program before I can sleep.
All that being said, just look at those zombie chickens! They don’t look so scary, now do they? They’re actually kinda cute. I haven’t known Midlife Job Hunter for that long but I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t be cursing me with poultry voodoo.
But one never really knows, now do they?
I’m going to assume that this Zombie Chicken Award is a good thing
because I’m a cockeyed optimist and totally pure of heart and all and accept this award in the spirit with which it was given. Thanks, Midlife Job Hunter! All kidding aside, I was stunned when I read the description of this award that you would think of me. I started this blog almost a year ago and totally thought the only readers I would ever have would be my long-lost imaginary playmates who moved to California when I was four. (Yes, I really had imaginary friends. Don’t judge.) Coming from a gifted writer such as yourself, I will cherish this award forever (or until I clean house again next January) and find a special place for it on my sidebar.
Please read the description of the Zombie Chicken Award below: (And try not to shake your head in bewilderment saying, “She picked SMB for this?”)
The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken - excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all...
And now to pass it on to bloggers much more deserving than myself. I thought long and hard about this and it’s practically impossible to narrow this down to five recipients. But somehow I did it.
The following bloggers have made me laugh, cry, spit coffee all over my keyboard and have warmed the cockles of my heart on more than several occasions. Please join me in congratulating:
Shhhhh! I'm hoping that the zombies won't notice that I can't count.
Thanks again to Midlife Job Hunter! I am truly honored.
