Ummm... I don't think of myself as sexy... or "I (really do) believe in miracles"


Other bloggers might be honored, but I'm somehow perplexed.  I've been awarded the Sexy Blogger Award; here in the kitchen, I hear the vamp from that "Hot Chocolate" song every time I mention it...

Other bloggers might recognize this as a thinly veiled chain letter instead of thinking that there is actually someone out there who thinks of me as sexy, but flattery comes me so seldom and even less often this early in the morning, before I've showered...

Other bloggers might pass on the requirement of listing six sexy things about themselves and then naming six other bloggers (I do not know six other bloggers) for the dubious honor...

...but in the spirit of fun...

1.  I throw pottery.  I don't know if it's the fact that my big clumsy man-hands can actually produce a pretty, thin porcelain bowl or whether my sitting at the wheel conjures visions of a young, lean, shirtless  Patrick Swayze getting down and dirty to the smooth sounds of the Righteous Brothers...

2.  I drink my coffee black.  My sister used to say, "I like my coffee just like I like my men; strong and black", just one summer working construction with my dad cured me of repeating that one-liner...  ...still in all, in this day of frappuccinnos and lattes for some reason I feel like the Marlboro Man when I refuse milk and sugar.

3.  I know that the days for wearing a Speedo have passed.  Now, you might argue that the days for wearing a Speedo never arrived and that the brand name really should be Speedon't, but my point here is that a little self awareness can be sexy.

4.  I play piano in the dark.  

5.   I love to laugh.  Now, mine is not a refined Cary Grant laugh or a raspy, taunting Humphrey Bogart laugh, but a highly recognizable man-giggle (not quite Uncle Albert in Mary Poppins, but I think you get my point).  

6.  Children fall asleep in my arms.  I do not know what this is all about.

...and there it is...

Look out, Hugh Jackman, my phone is a-ringin and it's People magazine...

Cue the "Hot Chocolate" music...
