A Couplet for my Emmy by da-AL

My Emmy was tarnished and broken.

Now that she’s varnished, she’s smokin’!

My new replacement Emmy AwardIsn’t she gorgeous?

My old Emmy Award that I had to send backMy old statuette broke. Plus she was chipped and tarnished. My husband suggested I get her fixed for the sake of having a nice picture taken with her for my book release. Unfortunately, all the trophy repair people I contacted said she was made of pot metal, which is apparently beyond the scope of welding and gluing.

Getting this new one (okay, she’s more than merely the couplet’s ‘varnished’) entailed turning in the original, along with paying a pretty sum.

My new replacement Emmy Award all boxed up
If only the original statuette had come so extravagantly boxed, she might never have gotten damaged.

Now I’m afraid to touch this new glittery one, certainly not without the little piece of lintless cloth that she arrived with. I’m also worried about setting her out on a bookshelf – what if she gets knocked over the way her predecessor suffered?

    I have Emmys from a previous job. I find the strong bases are pretty sturdy. My cat has not managed to knock them over, and he knocks over everything. 🙂

      the base didn’t break – it was the bolt that connects the statuette to the base…

    Bet it would look more pizzazzy if it were glued up…and with some added glitter, confetti… Congrats to you, Dal!

    Hi dear Daal, this busy girl doesn’t have time to read all the guest-blogs, sorry about that.
    Is the documentary still available to watch somewhere? Love to watch it.

      I totally understand, Patty – hopefully you’re the good kind of busy – the documentary is about homelessness in the Santa Monica area – it is now out of date, so no longer available to watch.
