—An acquaintance who read the title of my blog too fast, then admitted: “I’m a gay man.”
-Text from a friend who was having trouble logging on to my blog. (Click below for priceless movie trailer for The Blob, “starring Steve McQueen and a cast of exciting young people.”)
—My aunt, who I got a lot of my awesomeness from. She’s 87.
I met up with some German friends and they asked what I was doing with myself. I told them I was working on a blog called, “Being Awesome is a Drag.”
Germans: “How do you spell that?”
Me: “Oh, uh…A-W-E-S-O…..”
Germans: “No, dreg, how do you spell dreg?”
Me: “Oh! It’s drag, ‘Being Awesome is a Drag.’ D-R-A-G. Do you know it?”
They did not.
Me: “Oh, I see, well it’s like…like…pain. ‘Being Awesome is a Pain.’ “
Me: “Like, difficult…no, not difficult. Hmm…like, like, hardship!”
Germans: “Ah, you mean like burden!”
Me: “Yes, yes, like burden! ‘Being Awesome is a Burden!”
