A fellow blogger, Miss Wandering Jew (such a great name!), nominated me for a Liebster Award. Not lobster, but Liebster, which rhymes with Heebster. And since I’m too old to be a hipster and too squeamish to be a mobster or a gangster (and not hairy or tall enough to be a monster), it’s kind of fun to have a designation ending in -ster.
I’m not sure how it started, but this not-Lobster Award seems to be a fun way to recognize blogs who haven’t quite hit it big, or even hit it medium, or are still rather microscopic. Receiving this nomination was like having someone toss me a colorful beach ball, inviting me to play in the sand as the surf tickles our toes. My super serious self tried to catch and deflate it, muttering darkly about how I should slather on more sunscreen and write something deep, but my spontaneous self grabbed the ball and has decided to be in the game.
