Red Carpet Fauf

I'm sitting here watching the Oscars. We've been casting our guesses, and I was in the lead for a moment. Yes, I was beating the amazing Michael Shaw...but for a moment, but still enough to mention here. And the evening is still who knows, I may actually catch up and might even win. But somehow I don't feel that is right, beating Michael. Yet, the two have become one, so either way I win!

Anyways, after watching all these people accept their Oscars, make their speeches, shed some tears, thank their peoples, etc., I can't help but think how I would react to receiving an award. I mean, it doesn't have to be an Oscar, just any kind of award. But who am I kidding....let's pretend it's an Oscar. What other award is worth practicing acceptance speeches for?

"And the award for most inventive lunch bag in the teacher's lounge goes to..."

Or maybe

"Best supporting blogger in 'Confessions of a Fauf' is...."

Or rather

"The award for most loved wife goes to..."

Whatever the award, I'm sure my acceptance speech would go something like this:

"Wow! Boof! I'm just so overwhelmed. I never thought I would make it to this moment, when I first selected that lunch bag. I would like to thank my colleagues for encouraging me to use any lunch bag I wanted. And of course I would like to thank the Albertson's chain for manufacturing these great plastic grocery bags, without which I would not have a way to carry my lunch. Thank you!"


"What can I say, but 'Hooray for Faufs!' All thanks must go to the blogging website and those geniuses behind it all. I just have to say that it's great websites like the blogging one that can unite this world. And if ever you doubt that you can achieve your dream, just remember that it is possible! It is possible!" ::sniff, sniff::


"Oh, goodness, let me just catch my breath here for a moment. I'm just...speechless! But I would like to thank some very important people in my life. First I would like to thank my parents, who encouraged me to move to Santa Maria and pursue my husband. I must thank all my friends who supported me in this: Courts, Sauss, Lowie, Jenn in Boots, Kims, Lisa--oh, I have to wrap it up. I must thank Courtney who introduced me to Michael. I should probably thank my pastors and all my Sunday School teachers and--oh, okay, but I must thank one more person: my husband who without him I would not be accepting this award right now. Like I said, I'm speechless! Thank you!"
