Apparently there’s some big awards thingie happening this weekend that everyone’s talking about. I haven’t been invited, and in case you haven’t either, I figure we should give ourselves our own major awards.
What would you be proud to win a major award for? What are you so good at that, sure, dammit, you deserve some big, splashy recognition? Or perhaps there’s something you’re good at that you think few or no people even notice about you, and so it’s high time someone let the world know how darn amazing you are in this particular arena?
I, clearly, am overdue to receive the Eggie for Outstanding Achievement in Deviled Eggs and Egg Salad, and am so stunned by this award that I barely know what to say. I have a few notes here, didn’t write a speech because I didn’t expect to win… But I have to say that it’s so gratifying to be honored by my culinary egg-preparing peers, and I’d like to thank my friend Bonnie for inspiring me: her aversion to mayonnaise was key to my innovations in the field. Thank you.
Your turn. Go on, don’t be modest! Toot your own horn and give us your acceptance speech.
