Fastest Girl or Best Sport - which award would you rather get?
Best Sport. That's my answer.
I was at a function the other night and the awards were being handed out for fastest male and fastest female in a fun ski race, then came the Best Sport award.... I thought about that after, and figured that this is the award I'd like to have for the race of 'life'. Why? For a couple of reasons. To be the fastest male or female depends on having a collection of qualities and attributes, some of which are beyond one's control, whereas being the best sport is totally and completely within anyone's reach and is completely dependent on how you approach and perceive life. So it doesn't matter what your situation, what your physical shape, what your health condition, 'Best Sport' is within your reach, which is why I think that this is the award to get and the award to strive for. We can all be best sports and imagine what kind of awesome place this planet would be if we all worked on being the best sport. Besides, when you get fastest male or female, you might be going too fast to notice what amazing things life has to offer during the journey, and you definitely wont have enough time to stop and smell the roses, or see the beauty of each individual snowflake. So kudos Dan. May we all be the Best Sport just like you.
More cool stuff to come. Like really really really cool stuff. Stuff so cool that I might actually get to meet some of you in person in the not too distant future. How's that for a cliff hanger?
Now I go to bed and rest while my B-cells are the victims of genocide. Tomorrow a toilet bowl will be a mass grave of the innocent bystanders who have been confused by another drug intended to make me stronger (H1N1 vaccine). Peace out friends.
