When the Cherished Blogfest came to my attention, I realized my entry had already been written. I wrote it a while back, a simple, silly, humor essay about my baseball cap.
The challenge was to write about one of my cherished objects and having an essay on hand let me off the hook. I didn’t have to explain to all the other cherished (but jealous) objects why I did not pick them.
My wife: “How come you didn’t write about me?”
Me: “Because it was supposed to be about an object. Should I objectify you?”
My wife: “Nice try, buster.”
It works better this way. Now all I have to say is “You know how lazy I am, I just went with something I had.”
But that is not true (sorry dear), I felt that I had said something in the essay about cherishing and how commercial culture entices us to throw away the things we love.
I won’t go into all that here. You will have to read the essay for that… but before you do, I want to thank the writers who put this blogfest together and to encourage you to explore the writings of its participants.
