Because there are not enough puppies stuck in burning buildings for us all to rescue, thus showing off our heroic natures to the admiring world, I'd like to institute awards given for acts that are ever so slightly less awesome, yet still altogether praiseworthy.
That was a long sentence...
These awards are based on my own limitations, and the occasions that I have overcome them.
I know, I'm great.
Yes, I do accept gifts.
Award for Returning Library Books on Time
(I have only earned this a few times in my life, I'm afraid)
Award For Returning Library Books Only Slightly Late, But Well Before I Started Receiving Angry Notes
(Still only a few times)
Award For Getting Overnight DVDs Back The Very Day They're Due
(It's happened at least once)
Award For Eating The Regulation 5 Veg And 2 Fruit Daily
(Actually, I'm not sure if I've ever managed this)
Award For Eating Any Fruit And Veg At All
(Maybe I shouldn't be so proud of this one really)
Award For Taking The Rubbish Out Before The Bin Becomes Dangerously Overloaded
Award For Feeding The Cats Before They Start Giving Me Death Glares
Award For Getting Out Of Bed When The Alarm First Goes Off, Or At Least After Only One Snooze
Award For Cooking Dinner, Even After Takeaway Has Been Suggested
Award For Resisting Chocolate Once The Idea Has Taken Hold
And so on...
What awards do you deserve?
