No one has ever called me sweet.
Opinionated. Smart. Talkative. Funny. Weird. Yes, all those things. But never sweet.
No, You’re the Sweet One
Our new friends, Beth and Gizmo, at Terrier Torrent have given us the Super Sweet Blogging Award.
I’m flattered. They’re a cool duo who write about fun hikes near their Florida home. It’s worth checking them out just to see Gizmo posing in a tree.
But calling me sweet? I can only assume they were bitten by some weird tropical bug or suffering from dehydration from their last walk.
So I guess I’d better express my thanks and move along before they recover and ask for the award back.
Following the Rules
Blogging awards always have rules. This one asks a bunch of questions that only point out how un-sweet I am.
1. Cookies or Cake?
I guess cookies. But, if you’re asking, I’d rather have a big slab of warm, crusty bread covered in butter. Or maybe a plate of sashimi.
2. Chocolate or Vanilla?
Hmmm. Not sure. Right now a bowl of homemade vanilla ice cream sounds pretty good.
3. What is your favorite sweet treat?
Really dense, New York style cheese cake. Plain. But only occasionally.
4. When do you crave sweet things the most?
When I’m sad. Normally, I crave sour or tart things—green olives, dill pickles, inari sushi, grapefruit, lemonade, sour cream. Yummy!
5. If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be?
Well I’m certainly not called Honey, for obvious reasons. Sometimes my husband calls me Sunshine. See? Not sweet.
Passing Love Along
And now, I’m instructed to pass this award onto 13 (a baker’s dozen, eh?) bloggers.
Unfortunately I have house guests arriving shortly and Honey needs a nail trim (although I’m sure she’s willing to sacrifice the grooming so I can keep blogging).
So I’m going to pretend I just converted to the metric system and pass this along to 7 newish bloggers (or at least new to me) that I’ve met recently.
Blogging is hard work and I want to thank each of these folks for using their time to entertain and inform us all. I can’t wait to see who they pass the Super Sweet Blogging Award to.
And thanks again to Terrier Torrent for the recognition.
Have you ever gotten a compliment you thought didn’t fit? How about your dog?
