After a hiatus from awards, I’ve decided to release a compilation post of all the 11 awards that “The Bored Side Of The Phone” has been nominated for! To all my nominators, I’m so sorry for delaying this by 2 months. It’s just that my online classes, and the tension of “rescheduled exams” got in the way…..
Anyways, prepare yourselves for this extremely long post; as you get to know some more facts about me: Silver Stone!
1. The Penable Award #2 & #3!!
BoldGirl is an awesome poet, and a blogger who likes to write about many topics, mostly controversial ones; which I absolutely adore reading. All of her posts reflect on her name; because she isn’t afraid to express her views at all. However, I must give you a heads up: in a majority of her posts, there’ll be a truckload of GIFs and memes, so prepare yourselves for a meme and GIF overload!🤪😂
As for Phoenix; she’s also an epic blogger who hosts the famed, “Thursday Poetry Competitions”, and was also the host for “The Penable Magazine” contest. Her blog is also a place where her two adorable cats chill, and guest star as well. Please do check out both blogs, ’cause you won’t regret missing a thing!
BoldGirl’s & Phoenix’s Questions:
#1. Share a funny incident that would make your readers laugh.
Ans. Time period: final year of high school
It was just another Biology class; and our teacher was explaining the chapter on reproductive system (or was it human evolution? 🤔). Unfortunately for me, and 2 other classmates; we were stuck in the second row, right in front of the teacher. She was going on about some concept, and as always, a majority of us had either zoned out or were talking among ourselves.
One of my friends was sitting in the last row, and guess what brilliant idea she came up with? She decided to rock her chair back and forth; despite her bench mates warning her against doing so. Nonetheless, she continued to rock the chair (which was of course, a metal one). She kept on doing it, until the chair lost balance, and fell with a loud “THUD!”, while dragging her along with it. What’s even hilarious, was that she fell with her legs stuck up like a right angle.
As soon as that happened, the entire class turned around, and started cackling once they saw what happened. The teacher later turned around and was astonished when she saw the funny sight. She asked the class how my friend got into that situation, and her bench mates explained what happened. After getting an answer, the teacher questioned why she would even do such a thing, and asked some classmates to help her up.
But did she learn her lesson? No; because when we were silent reading a chapter in History class, she did the same thing again! 🤦♂️🤦♀️
#2. What are three books from your childhood that you wouldn’t mind reading today?
Ans. “Journey To The Centre Of The Earth”, “Alice In Wonderland”, and “The Three Musketeers”.
