In which she nominated me

 

This is amusing to me and I thought I’d share it with you.  There was something in the local paper the other day and the guy was asking for nominations for different people to be featured.  The person nominated needed to be interesting or eclectic or they needed to be unique or funny or accomplished; basically just anything out of the norm.

 

I mentioned it to Keely and told her “you should nominate me” figuring that there was no way that she actually would.  After all, while Keely finds me somewhat amusing she things my blog is so poorly written that I should be shot.

 

I was surprised when she went ahead and nominated me but then she forwarded me the email she sent and I cracked up.  Let me share some of the more “interesting” phrases with you

 

Hi there Mike,

 

My name is Keely MacDonald and I noticed an ad in the News & Record that you were looking for people to feature, so I’d like to recommend my mother, Lynn MacDonald. She lives in Greensboro and writes a fairly popular humor blog called “All Fooked Up.” What’s interesting about this blog is that it really appeals to all sorts of audiences: it appeals to parents, and by some could be considered a “mommy-blog,” but it also appeals to young adults, as it recollects funny stories from the past. Posts that feature rants are highly relatable, and the tone is super unique because her personality is one-of-a-kind (and absolutely ridiculous, might I add). I’m not saying she’s the best writer in the world – for the record, I’m not even going to say she’s a good writer – but I do think that there’s something there that really tends to draw people in (and I’m pretty sure it’s not her horrible grammar). I think she would be a hilarious and interesting person to feature, and I asked her already if she was okay with me nominating her for this, and she gave me the okay. So here’s a link to the blog if you’d like to check it out:

I believe you can message her through the blog if you’re interested, and just remember: if you’re looking for a laugh and a wildly fresh perspective, she’s your girl. Thanks, and have a great rest of the week.

 

Best, Keely

 

I cracked up because it was pure Keely.  She recommended me while simultaneously covering her ass with my “horrible grammar” and poor writing style.  Of course, I found the email to be fantastic and apparently, Mike agreed as I’m now on the list.

 

Thanks Keely,

 

From your super unique, one-of-a-kind ridiculous Mom!
