I got nominated for two more “awards” today. Even if I do them like I did yesterday’s award there are still a total of seventeen questions to answer. I will answer them tomorrow, I think. A couple of the questions actually intrigued me. As you all should know and remember from yesterday’s post, I think almost all of these so-called “awards” are just a bunch of phony-baloney nonsense whose sole purpose is to drive traffic. Traffic is cool, but they all have a bunch of silly, goofy rules to follow. And why say you are nominating someone? There’s no panel of judges. It’s not a contest. and the questions, therefore the rules, change with every entry.
There have been exceptions, however. For instance, I am proud of my Northwich Warrior Society badge:
But I had to earn it. I had to write a post about a fear or anxiety I overcame and it had to be judged worthy by Commander Nicholas. Last week or whenever it was I was tagged by the Dumbest Blogger to write about books, but he didn’t attach a bunch of silly rules or say it was some award, I just answered some questions.
But I will try to answer the questions from these “awards”, which were given with the kindest thoughts toward me and I don’t disdain the feeling behind them. I am actually looking forward to writing about a couple of the questions because they were very serious and I want to provide a serious and sincere answer.
So, on another topic, I am thinking of doing a humor blog. With many of my old jokes and a few new ones as I come across them. I’m thinking, “Herb’s Humor – Jokes so clean you can tell your pastor.”
Son: Why is my sister’s name Paris?
Dad: Because we conceived her in Paris. Why do you ask, Quarantine?
