Today marks the final day of Adoption Week at Steenky Bee. I promise, I only have one more story left, and it's about a fellow blogger that I have adopted as my big brother.
I've never had a brother, but if I were to have one, I would want this guy to be it. He goes by the name Captain Dumbass and he is was my very first bloggy friend, like ever. Besides my best gal (real-life BFF, JuleeSLC), Captain Dumbass was the first person to comment at Steenky Bee. And it wasn't like I had just been blogging a few weeks or anything, it had been almost 18 months. That's a long time with out any comment love, people.
I give the Captain all the credit for a pivotal change at Steenky Bee. I learned that there are nice bloggers out there. There are people that are kind and will offer up a link to your site just because.
So right about now, the Captain is wondering if he is being punked or something. I'm seriously never this nice to him. I'm not saying we haven't had our rough patches. There was that one Sunday a few weeks ago when I accidentally unfollowed him on Twitter. Those three hours are some of the darkest times I have ever experienced. I missed his tweet about the salmon burger he had for dinner. I KNOW!
Anyway, I have adopted the Captain and his family as one of my own. I look up to him like a brother. He has the coolest stories, the kindest words, two adorable boys and a wife who is the best sport, like ever.
So Captain, thank you and I'm sorry. Thank you for being my friend. Sorry for posting this picture of you on my site.
Go on over to Us and Them to see what happened when I finally met the Captain and his family face to face for the very first time.
