Awards And What To Do About Them Redux



As I suspected, I am guilty of rudeness. This is not what High WASPs enjoy. Aubergine Ink, who blogs in a lovely way about her wedding, gave me an award and I have not responded.

My mother always says, in matters of etiquette, “A simple thank you will suffice.” Blame my wayward spirit for the following. Because of my initial lapse in responding I am going to try a different mode of thank you. Aubergine, I made you your very own award. One that no one else will ever win. For anything. Just for you. It is in return for these beautiful photos which make me want to lie on the ground and hang ribbons in multitudes over my face and turn on a fan. To watch them wave.

I do know that typewriters in real life rarely splat ink on anything. So let’s pretend this was a savage typewriter. They exist you know.

    Thank so much! I love the splatty typewriter font.

    Absolutely no need for apologies though; I really just wanted to let you know so you could show off your ‘awards’.

    "A simple thank you will suffice." What does this mean? If I give you a gift, you just say "thank you" and nothing more? Does it mean you don't have to give someone a gift in exchange for a gift? Hope you will explain this someday, as you say it a lot!
