|Jus' kickin' back -- photo by Mike Baird via Wikimedia Commons|
When I worked in government contracting for the Army in Colorado, kickbacks were a very bad thing. If you google "kickback" you will find it is "a payment made to someone who has facilitated a transaction or appointment, especially illicitly." In other words, taking a bribe to make a decision about awarding a contract that may not be to the best candidate, and not in the best interests of the taxpayer whose dollars you are spending. Illegal. Jail-able.
The kind of kickback I want to do today, though, is different. I want to kick the limelight back onto some of the other blogs I've been enjoying at this point nearly halfway through the A to Z blogging challenge. And I also want to enjoy the other meaning of the word "kick back" -- put my feet up and relax about generating thoughtful blog content today.
