Today we are celebrating the genius of the man who brought you the A to Z Challenge, and Tossing It Out, as well as five other intriguing blogs, Arlee "Lee" Bird. Thanks to Mark Koopmans, Morgan Shamy, David Powers King, Stephen Tremp, and 2012 CheersFest recipient Alex J. Cavanaugh, for creating this good spirited roast.
Without further ado, here are the questions that our hosts compiled:
Why did Lee come up with the A-Z Challenge?
He wanted to share his love of blogging with people from all over the world; inspiring creativity while forming friendships.
If someone dreams about being a juggler, what does it mean?
It means they have perfect hand-eye coordination, and lots of nervous energy.
Is a post by Mr. Bird worth two in the bush?
Absolutely, and so are his comments. Once I wrote something that completely misfired, and Lee swooped in to my defense.
· Who could play Lee in a documentary? (Living or dead.)
Why Bruce Willis of course.
In +/- 100 words, (excluding the title) write flash fiction using all these (bold) prompts:
The Fearless Juggler
The juggler twirled his dapper mustache,
Before slipping into his brown prom jacket.
He grew it to cover an upper lip rash,
From tossing some old tennis rackets.
His act was in full swing on stage,
When a heckler gave him the bird.
He used his wits rather than rage,
Without even uttering a word.
He added flaming daggers to the mix,
Lee's rise to the challenge was sky high.
He risked it all with his dangerous tricks.
When he stopped abruptly to zip up his fly.
"I've told you a million times, I didn't play a doctor in that Linda Lovelace movie. I'm not that kind of performer."
Thanks for all that you do, Lee. I will always be grateful to you, and I hope that you enjoy this special day in your honor.
