Today, I am happy. Almost as happy as a forgotten doughnut at a pageant mom potluck. So now is the part where you ask, “Why, Loony, why are you happy?” And then I say, “Well apparently YOU have not been paying attention — and you obviously do not know my real name!”
You see, I was Freshly Pressed. Yes, that’s right. I was initiated into this mysterious club where you fart rainbows and eat the dreams of children. I feel a bit unprepared. I have never been accepted into a club before – I didn’t even shower! Okay, maybe I did get the email yesterday, so technically I did have time to bathe — but I was too busy getting high off of my endorphins and doing this (see below)…
I am still feeling a bit like “Woah,” and counting my nine fingers to make sure I’m not dreaming. It’s a pretty fantastic thing to have your writing be recognized, especially to a self-deprecating fool like myself. I truly am honored and humbled, and wish that I could legally castrate anyone who refuses to share my excitement (that’s really not a joke, I already have a couple people on the list).
Last night I even had dreams about what happens after being featured on Freshly Pressed … but before I could bask in the glowing satisfaction, I got my leg eaten by a swamp gator and woke up crying on my cat.
No matter though, today I shall have a certain bounce to my step and make everyone wonder, “Oooh, what’s her secret?” I will coyly smile, whip my hair back and forth, and drive off in my non-existent car. All because of one email Ms. Editor Cheri sent me.
It really is the little things that make you decide against that ‘all day eat yourself into oblivion because I have nothing left to live for” binge. Seriously.
Anywho, I could talk about other fabulous things like orange tictacs, but let’s not take the spotlight away from what really matters. I am completely in love with blogging and getting to know some very amazing people through it. If I can continue doing this, I will be a very, very happy reptar. I appreciate the thought that my words are deserving of being featured, and I appreciate those who read & leave wonderful comments. It’s awesome, completely.
Oh, and quick shout out to s1ngal who told me I was sure to be Freshly Pressed someday soon, and then became my most favoritest person. Check out the blog, won’t you.
