Yesterday, I heard Lulu making a ruckus. She was barking and yapping at the front door so I peeked out to see Terese and Greg trying to make a stealth delivery on my front porch. Of this:
When I realized what it was, I was astounded. Shocked. Amazed. Dumbfounded.
Yes. It was indeed a three foot tall Friendship Extraordinaire trophy. I was overcome with emotion as I took in it's....it's...um....uniqueness.
[You can read how I earned this coveted award here.]
.::sniff sniff::. It was such an honor be nominated. (although I did nominate myself) But to actually win! I never in my wildest dreams though I'd be standing on my front porch accepting this
"May The Eternal Flame of Friendship Shine Forever"!
Golly. Oh, my.
For a nanosecond, I had no words. Terese's thoughtfulness would have brought a tear to my eye if I could still make tears. When I found my voice, I attempted to make an acceptance speech which began,"I'd like to thank all the little people out there that made this possible..." but I didn't get to finish because the award presenters began looking for things to throw at me.
Is THAT any way to treat the Friendship Extraordinaire recipient, I ask you? By her FRIENDS? Hm?!
battery operated self stick LED eternal flame:
The eternal flame is especially impressive when the trophy sits in it's three foot box. See it eternally flaming?
I've put it in a place of honor so that everyone can appreciate it's eternal flame-iness. Or would that be more accurately flame-esence?
Lulu doesn't know what to make of it. But I think it's a thing of beauty. Wonder if I should ask John to make a trophy case for me...
