As I read, it is as if the tempest of my thoughts is spelled out on paper.The overflowing sense of hyper-reality in Tim O’Brien’s words of warfare spills into my world.But I don’t think of being “Most original” as an insult anymore – I wear it as a badge of honor, proof that I am myself and no one else. “How about ‘Most Original.’”This writer’s style clearly shows off her sense of humor.
More than anything else, it is this writing style that elevates what could have been a fairly superficial statement of personal growth into a truly informative story that showcases the author’s personality.
If this sounds like you, then please share your story. You can’t be the best, or the prettiest, so you have to be “original.” I’ve won the “Most Original” award a fair number of times.
I won “Most Original” pumpkin at a Halloween party years ago. I was even named “Most Original” at a basketball awards banquet. How can anybody be “Most Original” when she’s playing basketball?
I’m still skeptical about the “Most Original” award.
In the context of an award ceremony, it’s still just a meaningless consolation prize.
