Don’t get me wrong; I think it’s great that she so generously shared her favorite things with her audience. It’s just that one of my favorite things is properly capitalized words. It would have been great if she would have done both: given away her favorite things and practiced responsible capitalization.
Well, there’s a famous quote from one of Oprah’s favorite authors, Toni Morrison: “If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.” So I guess I must heed her advice. If I want to experience a properly capitalized favorite things give-away, I’ll have to create it myself.
And here are a few of my favorite things :
1. A Johnny Depp calendar. He's my flavor of every month.
2. A box of Lemon Zest Luna bars. I usually opt for chocolate-flavored, but these lemon-flavored bars are so dang delicious.
3. Nag Champa incense. It just smells so good.
4. The best movie ever. No, I'm not taking crazy pills.
If you want a chance to win one of my favorite things, all you really have to do is "like" me.
In my last post, I mentioned that I was going to try to expand my social media horizons, so I was thinking that maybe I could buy some friends.
