How Did You Get There: It’s MY tiara, and why are you wearing it without asking?
Kristi: (adjusts gold lame gown) Sally Clements nominated me for my 2nd Kreativ Blogger Award!
How Did You Get There: I believe she nominated ME!
Kristi: (practices surprised smile) Her blog is Love and Chocolate—with a name like that you can only imagine how much fun it is!
How Did You Get There: I know, but it’s MY friend so I should receive the Award.
Kristi: Right – like last time, when you let the Award get drunk on the couch? This time I’m ready with my list of “7 Little Known Facts” you’re going to reveal about me.
How Did You Get There: About you?! But–I’m the blog!
Kristi: (unrolls gold edged paper) Shut up and listen. I’ll read them as soon as the Award arrives—is the whiskey locked up?
How Did You Get There: Yes.
Kristi: (clears throat) #1 I was born and raised in Texas, but have also lived in Rochester, NY; Boston, Paris and now Dublin.
How Did You Get There: (under breath) #1 Obnoxious Braggart.
Kristi: What did you say?
How Did You Get There: (unlocks whiskey cabinet, pours shot) Nothing.
How Did You Get There: (drinks) #2 Extremely annoying as a child.
Kristi: What are you muttering about?
How Did You Get There: (pours 2nd shot) Just writing down what you said, for journalistic accuracy…
Kristi: Right! (beams in self admiration) #3 I was painfully shy growing up.
How Did You Get There: (sloshes back drink) #3 Thankfully parents had a few quiet years.
Kristi: #4 Had lead in High School Musical: Bye, Bye Birdie.
How Did You Get There: #4 Even more annoying as a teenager.
Kristi: #5 Was unofficially voted by the tenor and baritone sections of the University of Texas choir, as having the Best Butt. Get it? They stood behind the soprano and mezzo-soprano sections!
How Did You Get There: Oh, I get it. (mutters) #5 Had biggest Butt in choir, all the guys said so.
Kristi: Maybe I shouldn’t say that last one…it sounds like I’m bragging.
How Did You Get There: (drinks 3rd shot, giggles) Oh, Pshaw!
Kristi: #6 Family legend has it that a distant relative on my mother’s side held the horses for the James Gang once during a robbery.
How Did You Get There: #6 Blah blah blah
Kristi: #7 I love dogs.
How Did You Get There: #7 I love my blog – it’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me…*kiss* kiss* kiss*
Kristi: What are you doing over there?
How Did You Get There: (runs to door, holding empty bottle) Hey there big guy! Common in, wanna drinkie-poo?
Kreativ Blogger Award: No, thanks. I don’t drink any more, and it looks like you shouldn’t either. Say, I know a really great 12-Step group—you wanna go?
How Did You Get There: A party? I’m there!
(both hop into hot pink mini, drive off into orange and purple sunset)
Kristi: (runs after them, waving list) But you forgot my list!
How Did You Get There: (shouts back) Don’t worry – I gotcha covered!
Kristi: And now to nominate a cyberspace friend, whose blog I enjoy:
Mariblaser: Randomities for her lovely thoughts and musings on a wide variety of topics, anything from the meaning of Steampunk, which I never realized I was a fan of, to stunning photos from National Geographic.
