I’m not going to lie to you. When I read lists of top 10 best this and 50 greatest that, I get jealous. Insanely jealous. I’m almost never on them, so while I try really really hard to be happy for those who are, inside my head the wheels are turning as I try to figure out the secret formula. Should I be posting more? Trying to make a living less? Whom do I pay off? Whom do I sleep with? Should I stop saying “whom”? I don’t think I get it right a lot of the time anyway.
Well, babble.com just came out with a list of the top 50 Twitter moms for 2010. It was surprising enough to see that I was on that list, at #27. But I was absolutely floored to see that I was named #1 funniest twitter mom. I keep expecting them to announce that they made a mistake, that I was actually supposed to be #1 twitter mom with her foot in her mouth, or #1 twitter mom who embarrasses her family on a daily basis, or even the #1 twitter mom who should go back to working at McDonald’s because that’s what she’s best qualified for.
So go look quick, before they snatch it away and give it to someone way more deserving.
Thank you Babble.com. I’ve got my acceptance speech written, my dress picked out, and I’ll book my flight as soon as you let me know where the awards ceremony will take place. Also, if you could tell me which network will be televising the ceremony, that would be great, so that I can set my DVR. Lastly, while my big old house needs a lot of work and my husband desperately needs new clothes, I’m officially pledging 10% of my prize money to the American Association of- what? I’m sorry, I’m being told that the list is it, that it starts and ends there. Oh. OK, well, that’s still incredibly cool. Excuse me, I have to go cancel a couple of internet orders for tiaras and sashes…
