Last week’s Weekly Question of the Week – about which movie would most benefit from the addition of a fire-breathing dragon – proved to be tremendously popular. An unprecedented number of entries! This, I believe, suggests the following things:
1. Everybody loves dragons
2. I should apparently base my questions off of bizarre dreams I have more often. (“Okay, everybody, for this week: you know that dream where you have to catch a plane and you’re trying to pack and you’re going as fast as you can, but there just keep being things you’re forgetting and you can’t find things and your bag won’t close and you’re running out of time? WHY CAN’T I GET PACKED? WHY CAN’T I GET PACKED??”)
3. I will exploit its popularity with a near endless stream of increasingly derivative follow-ups – What TV show should have a dragon? (Everybody Loves Raymond. Also Dragons) What song should have a dragon? (“Stop Dragon My Heart Around”) What recipe should feature dragon? (None. Dragons are endangered)
4. I should probably retire from the Weekly Question of the Week on a high note. Start the “Weekly Complaint of the Week” or the “Weekly Paranoid Diatribe of the Week” or something.
So get excited for any or all of those things! Until then, enjoy voting for the finalists, and be sure to check out this week’s Featured Blogger.
And the winner of “What’s the best advice for dads” comes from Musings of the Amusing Muse who offered: “Teach your children to live life example.” Congratulations! And hopefully everyone will set an example by checking out Musing of the Amusing Muse.
