Challenge Extended: Challenge Accepted
The other day, I was ranting and roaring about how much trouble I’ve been having being funny.
Inner Monologue: It’s because you aren’t funny.
Me: I’m so funny. I’m just having trouble writing it down.
Inner Monologue: That’s not true. I remember everything. It’s not funny.
Actual Other Human Being: …Are you talking to yourself?
This of course brought on the conversation where I explained why I was talking to myself and of course, the important fact that I’m not bat shit crazy, I’m just a blogger with some major issues. Those being writer’s block. Nothing more.
So, the actual human being checked out this blog, told me I was kind of funny when I’m not trying, and told me that obviously, if I just wrote everything down, something funny would happen, and then it would be captured in writing and the world would right itself.
Like I didn’t think of that.
Then, he proceeded to bet me the price of my dignity, and an additional $20 that I couldn’t continuously post for a whole week — which means something readable and more than fifty words and not totally judged and not posted would have to go up everyday. For a week.
No judgement for a week.
So, you people can be the judges. Once a day for seven days. Starting today, since by the time we made this bet, yesterday’s post had already gone up and APPARENTLY, in this establishment, small people are not allowed to ride dogs like horses. Or count previously posted blogs.
So, I’m brainstorming. Here’s what I’ve got so far:
- I’ve decided to do one of those daily diatribes like my friend Triple Name does over on his new blog — for example — yesterday, he did “Why I’m weird Wednesday.” That means there is a solid chance you’ll be seeing a “Sh!t My Mother Says Saturday/Sunday/Day of the week because I got lazy on Saturday/Sunday.”
- I’ve also decided to dump the contents of my purse out and show ya’ll what I carry around/why I have back problems, courtesy of the gorgeous Camie over at Wild-Spirit.net. This might scare you. You wouldn’t believe the random stuff I have hidden away in my beast of a bag.
- FITTED SHEETS. ‘Nuff said.
That gets me, counting today, through four days of the week. I need some ideas kids. I’ll split the $20 with you. Between all my readers, that’s like fifty cents for everybody. And as Smash Mouth once said, we could all use a little change.
I’m saying “yo” an excessive amount today. It feels appropriate — like when I tell you all about how the bet is going, yo.
Day 1: You’re looking at it.
