Sometimes it’s someone who commented here, a link left in the Blog Registry, a recommendation from another blogger, or someone who has been blogging for awhile and I feel they need more recognition.
The blog I’m showcasing today started from a tweet – on Twitter.
The tweet said,
Chk out my new post “My Top Five Favorite Pranks to Play on People I Love.” http://bit.ly/67zj4
Curiousity got the best of me so I clicked on the link.
As I read this author’s favorite pranks, I laughed out loud. Then I watched the video and even now, as I think about it, I still laugh.
Laughter is the best medicine, isn’t it?
As I was preparing this post, I started to dig deeper into his archives. What a pleasant surprise.
You see, based on his online “handle”, the name of his blog and the post I had read, I assumed most of his blog was humor.
I was wrong.
When he detailed a conversation he had with a young gal on a bus, I found his words to be so captivating, I felt I was on the same bus ride. Here’s a sampling from the post titled, Time Interrupted: The Girl On The Bus
Neither of us has to say anything about how it feels to wake up to the truth: the agonizing disappointment and emptiness; the heart racing to keep ahead of the fear that stalks it; the aching aloneness that squeezes the chest and grips the throat, threatening to stop the breath.
I won’t ruin it for you and say what the article is about, but it is a fabulous read.
Mixed throughout his blog are samplings of his humor. In his post titled Five Benefits Of Mononucleosis he starts out by saying,
First the Acute Phase, which feels like
1. You just finished drinking battery acid during a hallucinogenic funk
2. Your head is being forced through the birth canal of a tse-tse fly
3. Every muscle fiber has been flattened like a pancake under a Mack truck then loaded up with valium, minus any pain-relieving benefits
4. You have no stomach.
What an imagination and command of descriptions.
Another post worth mentioning is named, My Son, My Hero. In this post he shares a lesson his young son taught him.
Then there’s his Twitter profile where he describes himself as,
Average Joe just trying to enjoy life’s simple moments. Self-therapy thru a nutty blog. Hoping to help raise funds for autism, mental health & cancer research.
I could go on talking about this author, but since we don’t have time for that, without further ado, I would like to introduce you to Chris of Numb Nuggets.
Welcome to the Blogging Without A Blog community, Chris.
Enjoy your reign. Enjoy your blogging journey.
As a footnote, I suggest all women as well as guys who have women in their lives, read the series titled, Momma’s Littlest Angel – How A Baby Girl Saved Her Mother’s Life – Part 1, Part II, and Part III.
