He has dreams, like everyone else.
Avant Security Guard thought he had a chance at this year’s Pulitzer Prize for fiction, just like John Blandly, Pantson Fire, and everybody else who fictionalizes. They’ve announced every other one, including Poetry. That award went to “life On Mars,” by Tracy K. Smith, so, although I’m deeply disappointed, congratulations Tracy.
Sure, I suppose folks might wonder, will the author of “50 Shades of Grey” win the imaginary Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, with that erotic book based on Twilight? Most bookstores are sold out and can’t keep it in stock.
Whatever. Avant’s upcoming book (if he can come across enough nice photos to put in it), entitled, “Beautiful Female Athletes,” will feature his cousin in law Misty May-Treanor.

Avant’s not sure Misty’s husband Matt Treanor, a catcher for the Dodgers, is his cousin, as so far he hasn’t responded to his fan mail, but no matter.
A lot of folks ignore Avant. Misty was in the news recently concerning some nations having objected to their girls wearing the tiny beach bikinis that Misty and her fellow athletes wear when playing under the hot sun on the beach.
The organizers of the sport have permitted those country’s girls to wear whatever the want (apparently shorts down to their knees and sleeves). It’s okay if they sweat bullets and get sandstuck in their clothes. Another tremendous athlete, Lindsay Vonn, on the eve of tax filing deadline, has announced that she’d paid the $1.7 million she owed in back taxes. Wow, that must not have come from skiing, but endorsements, or maybe broken skis or bindings or lost hats that were replaced by guys with big crushes on her.
