I took 1st place in the prelims of The Ventura Comedy Festival.
I've never won anything before in my life.
I never won won teacher of the year. I never won volunteer of the week when I taught Sunday school. I've never won a sports award. I've never won a girl in a love triangle.
I used se to get blue ribbons at elementary school speech meets. But so did 100 other kids.
The best I ever did in wrestling was 3rd place at a fresh/soph tournament.
So when I was a teacher I gave an award to every student at the end of the year. Here are some examples:
"The Thank You Award for not giving me one problem all year."
"The Answer to a Question no one asked award."
"The Nowhere To Go But Ugly Award." (That was to a boy who always talked about how good looking he was.)
They knew it was my way to reach out and let them know I cared and saw something about them.
So this is a new feeling. In fact...when my name was called, I didn't know what to do. I froze. I was told by a buddy to run up on stage.
I'll be performing 8/2 Tuesday night at the Ventura Harbor in the semis. I get a guest list. Just let me know.
God is good. He's good all the time.

Blogging allows for me to rant when there is no stage in the moment to talk about what's important and/or funny to me.
