When I didn't even know who Alex was, I would get a comment that would put a smile on my face. It NEVER failed. Then, it got to where as soon as I posted, I expected a comment within 3o minutes from someone named Alex. It didn't matter what time of day I posted and it didn't matter what the subject matter was in my post. I could count on Alex to come along and comment.
I thought he had a spy camera. How did he know I posted???
One day, I went to his blog after several days of missing his post and I wanted to catch up on all the things I had missed that week. As you all already know, he posts awesome ninja news, right? So I had to scroll down to the bottom of his page to read it all.
There to my astonished amazement was a link to my blog!! I couldn't believe it. I felt so honored that someone with so many followers and blog hops and magic comments all the blogoshere would even know who I was or care enough about what I had to say, to be listed in a long line of Blog roll guests of honor.
Even more so, what sealed it for me was the day I was so discouraged and posted a little whiny, woe is me blog post, and here he came and wiped a tear from my eye. A stranger, really, who was kind enough to wipe my tears? How amazing. I felt humbled beyond words.
So, this is my THANK YOU blog post, truly and told in a very raw and sappy way, to the Ninja Captain.
Oh, and Thank you, Mrs. Alex, for kindly sharing your time with your husband for all of us blessed writers!
And if any of you have ever seen Love Comes Softly, then you know what I mean when I say "Clark" (Dale Midkiff) would make a perfect Alex, or vice-verse, or something like that!
As T commented below, Alex needs an award. Yes he does! So Alex, because you have been faithful in commenting on every blog known to man, and because you have sworn to fulfill your obligations and duties faithfully and honorably, I hereby bestow upon you the award of the Inky Comment!
