(clears throat while reaching for the gold statue of a mom still in her pajamas) (I'm imagining myself in my little black dress that I so elegantly wore in 2004. *sigh* Now is no more because my hips are no longer a size four. They feel like they are forty-four.)
"I'd like to thank my high school friend, Daniele, who always french braided my hair before EVERY softball game, for nominating me. I am humbled and thankful on this our weekend of Thanksgiving. *Clapping* Oh and my husband who still doesn't laugh at my jokes even though I think they are side stitching funny. Yes, babe I still heart you. My 2 dear dear, body destroying children. I love you so. Even though you keep me from the Y. You are still dear and near to my heart. And my God, for giving me this opportunity. Thank you Jesus. *kisses fingers and points to the sky as a tear rolls down face* AND to my fan (yes fan, singular) I thank you. *The lone fan claps and a tear rolls down her face* I would love to nominate 8, I mean 9, other people, hang on to your seats. In no particular order...

*The music begins to play*I love you all, good night!! *The lone fan's legs are trembling from the fantastic acceptance speech and can't stand. The husband is still in his seat because he can't figure out if the winner, also his wife, was being serious or facetious. The 8 winners are no where to be found because only one person reads this blog*

I chose nine, I was never one to follow rules.
