Look at what I won, a Perfect Post for January 2007 award. My friend, tiggerprr, gave it to me. She’s trying to butter me up. Tiggerprr and I have been setting up an arranged marriage between her daughter and my son. I am offering a dowry of 50 cows and 6 ponies. I think the offer is generous. My wife’s parents only got 24 cows and a turtle. Tiggerprr is holding out for more. Hence, the award.
The timing is a little odd because last week I was wondering if I should continue blogging. Daddy Forever is far from being a useful blog. I don’t live an exciting life and I can’t imagine readers wanting to read my blog month after month. Then there’s my writing. I’m not exactly a gifted writer. I spend most of my time writing code. So writing complete sentences is a struggle for me. Hard to believe I have a college degree when I can’t even write proper sentences.
Tiggerprr gave me the award for my I Have a Dream post. After I wrote that, I thought I was going to get flamed for writing that post on Martin Luther King’s birthday. I thought people might consider my post disrespectful, which was not my intent. It’s because of people like Dr. King that my children and I will not have to endure the things that other people had to endure.
I guess this is the part where I’m suppose to thank everyone. First, I want to thank tiggerprr for giving me the award (visit her blog and let her know my dowry offer is very generous). I also want to thank Angelina Jolie and Gong Li for always being there for me in my dreams. Can’t forget about the wife and kids. Without them, I would have nothing to write about. I want to thank my cousin Feng Shui, Aunt Yin, and Uncle Yang for bringing balance and harmony in my life. I also want to thank all the people I stepped on to get this award. Finally, I want to thank all of you. Without you, there would still be me, but no you. And if there’s no you, I would have no readers. Thank you everyone.
