The TMI Blog Award honors those blogs that discuss everything in detail and do it well. These bloggers aren’t afraid to discuss their most awkward, embarrassing and intimate experiences with honesty, humor and little to no filter.
Well that certainly describes me don’t you think? There is a power in blogging. Unlike the media of the mainstream, we who blog follow a different path. That path is clear within a few seconds of digesting the blog you are reading. We have a mission to inform, educate, and enlighten by the words, subjects and delivery we use when we blog.
I am highly honored to receive this award because of what it stands for. I am equally honored that I am receiving this award from RacyRed at Work The Dream.

MY awkward moment: I know this is not uncommon, and it has happened to many stupid folks like me before, but this was just a golden time frozen forever in my mind. My deceased wife and I were in Atlanta with our then 3 year old son Tyler. Tyler was the type of baby who was so beautiful because of the genes of his mom, that women would walk up to us, bend over, and just start praising his looks. Tyler never cried or frowned, he always had a smile on his face. And Tyler was a ladies man even as a baby, upon emerging from the womb, his first words as the nurse were walking around the birthing room were….”hey, do fries go with that shake?”
Anyway (now you see why the word total was increased) one woman was bending over Tyler’s stroller in Walgreens one Sunday morning, talking to Tyler and loving his smile, and I asked the obviously pregnant soon to be mom, “how many months was she?” She responded as she looked up from Tyler’s smiling face, “huh?” So being the idiot I was, I repeated, “how many months pregnant are you, when is your baby due?” The beautiful woman replied in a very even voice with her killer smile….” Oh I’m not pregnant, I’m just fat”.
My wife spent the rest of that Sunday looking over at me throughout the entire day, shaking her head in silence.
