So, like I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been lucky enough to have been nominated for two awards and this is the first. Once again, thank you so much to Asil for the nomination! I haven’t known this guy for long, but I’m already pretty impressed with him and you all should check out his blog.

The Rules:

1. Nominate 5 blogs and notify them by linking to their site and leaving them a comment

2. Pick out a title from one their recent posts and write it into a short story

And now, a special edition of Story Time With Sam:

“Why is it so hard to just be still?” I whined to Ronaldo, the all-knowing emu egg.

With a heavy sigh, he rolled his eggy self over to rest beside me. “Well, in my opinion, it’s all because of the injury paradox. But really, you shouldn’t ask me.”

He chuckled to himself for a moment, “I mean, I don’t blow my nose, how could you expect me to know something like that.”

I rolled my eyes and began pacing the room, “Ronaldo, you don’t even have a nose!” I exclaimed. “Besides, didn’t you go to a university to learn things like this?”

Ronaldo began laughing so hard that he nearly rolled right off of the chair where he was seated, but at the last moment he managed to balance himself between his fits of maniacal laughter.

“Oh, Sam! Don’t be ridiculous! We both know the only reason I went to that university was so that I could learn how to write terrible poems!”

Ah, yes. Another wonderful STWS (that’s quite a clever and catchy acronym).

Thanks again to Asil, this is probably one of the coolest awards I’ve seen.
