A Mystery to Me

0DF9B546-DD60-4690-891B-F740593E4FD0It’s somewhat of a mystery to me why anyone would nominate me (or my blog) for the Mystery Blogger Award.

It sounds like an award that should be offered to bloggers who write mystery posts. I don’t. And there’s nothing mysterious about my blog, either. While I do post anonymously using a ridiculous pseudonym, “Fandango,” I’m not a mysterious person.

And yet the blogger behind Walk the Goats did just that — nominated me (or my blog) for that award.

In addition, I have officially declared my blog to be an award-free blog. But I guess not everyone is aware of that.

Having said that, I do want to thank Miss Walk the Goats for the nomination and I will answer the questions she posed. However, I will not, as the “rules” suggest, nominate 10 – 20 other bloggers for the award. That’s too much work.

So here are the questions asked of me, along with my answers.

  1. If you were told you were going to lose the ability to see one color and you could choose which one, what color would you choose to give up and why? I’d give up mauve because I have no idea what color mauve is, so I probably wouldn’t miss it. Also chartreuse for the same reason.
  2. If someone gave you a chance to swim in a pool of chocolate, would you do it? Not a chance.
  3. If yes, what do you think it would feel like? If not, why wouldn’t you? I’m more of a plain vanilla kind of a guy.
  4. What’s your favorite book written about the craft of writing? Stephen King’s “On Writing.” I actually thought it was going to be one of Stephen King’s typical scary novels where the protagonist, a writer, perhaps, had some sort of supernatural encounter or macabre experience. It wasn’t until I finished reading the book that I finally figured out that it was a book about the craft of writing. Who knew?
  5. What’s something you’ve done that you’re proud of? Survived my teenage years. And my twenties. Thirties, as well. Let’s just say that I’m proud, as a senior citizen, to still be among the living.

So once again, thanks Walk the Goats for the Mystery Blogger Award nomination. Don’t ever do it again.

    Ok. So I missed the “no awards” part of your blog. Big biff. And I’m glad I did. Otherwise I wouldn’t have had the pleasure of your post above. Made me laugh. Great post; and answers.

    And…I won’t.

    I’m with you on the “still alive!” thing. It has been such a close call way too many times. I need a nice, longs, SLOW run of moderately decent health.

    Note: Because of the nature of these nominations, anyone will nominate ANYONE for ANYTHING because almost no one is willing to do them. Only people who are relatively new to blogging will even give them a try. I thought it was an honor until i realized … not really.
