Back in the miserable month of August, I wrote about how the only thing getting me through the month was this hilarious kid. He’s gained international popularity for the three words he declared on the local news in Portland, Oregon last summer, “I Like Turtles.”
It wouldn’t be so funny, except for the fact that he was asked what he thought of his zombie face-paint job. Turtles had nothing to do with the matter. Anyway, there would be no sense in me revisiting the incident, except for this: The page I linked to in my original commentary, “The Washington Post,” linked back to me! I don’t know, I guess they have tech people working on figuring out who is reading their website. Anyway, they found my post and linked back to it! Isn’t that amazing? Go ahead…click here. Scroll down a bit. Just to the right of the fourth paragraph is a little box that reads, “Who’s Blogging?”
See that first link there? The one that reads, “Archives of Our Lives.” That would be me. You can click on it again if you want–it will bring you to the original post I wrote about the kid. It’s an entire mind-blowing network of link love!
I am tickled pink about this. And though I know it’s not really a huge deal, I kind of feel like I’ve won a Grammy.
