The Reality Blog Award
I’m not usually one to call attention to myself, but I am honored and humbled to have been nominated by Vince for the Reality Blog Award. Vince writes a blog called “The Evolving Dad,” about his adventures as a brand-new father. Vince used to write about baseball, but obviously now has more important things on his mind, namely, a brand new child. (Congratulations again on that, Vince!)
By way of accepting this award, there are a few other steps that I am required to complete. One step is to answer each of the five following questions, so here goes:
1) If you could change one thing, what would you change?
Well, other than the Mets outfield, I would like to make it possible to once again have civil discourse in this country where people aren’t so quick to demonize those who may disagree with them on every issue that emerges…or the ending of the movie version of “The Mist.” I really hated that ending.
2) If you could repeat an age, what age would it be?
Honestly, I am perfectly happy with where I am now in my life. I have no desire to go back and do it again.
3) What one thing really scares you?
Any and all varieties of harm that could befall my family.
4) What is one dream you have not completed, and do you think you’ll be able to complete it?
I would like to bike the entire (approximately) 36 round-trip miles of the Swamp Rabbit Trail here in Greenville, SC. in one day. Yes, I think I can eventually do it.
5) If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be?
I would like to experience the world through the eyes of my youngest, six-year old son. What am I like as a father, as seen through his eyes, and how much of the world’s simple pleasures have I forgotten to enjoy?
Now, I have also been asked to nominate others for this same award. Therefore, I would like to nominate each of the following blogs:
11) Mystery Ball ’58
12) W.k. Kortas
Each of the above blogs keeps me entertained, informed and inspired. You should visit each of them, too.
Finally, I would like to once again thank The Evolving Dad for nominating me for this award.
Thank you, Vince!
