It’s been far too long since I’ve stood on my soapbox and preached about something frighteningly unimportant. So here we go…
As a life update, I’ve been called in to audition for an adventure-based game show a la Amazing Race and the likes. So here is what I plan on telling the producers so they select yours truly for the chance to win a 50k cash prize.
- I have the highly evolved survival skills of a honeybadger and the bro-like aggression of an Africanized honeybee.
-I have attended and survived two Nordstom Rack Shoe Sales without being stiletto-impaled by an overzealous anorexic or trampled to death by a militant group of affluent middle schoolers.
-I always have an exit strategy or plan B—whether I’m escaping the crippling grip of a stage-5 clinger or stifling a raging apartment fire that may or may not have been caused by a combination of child-like curiosity, intoxication and easy access to chemistry kits on eBay….
- My adult onset ADHD paired with my sugar-based diet will result in pure TV gold.
- I’ve always had a knack for finding creative ways to enter or exit a room, as evidenced by my birth. I have camcorder proof that I shawshanked my way out of my mother’s womb using only a chicken bone fashioned into a shiv and a smoke bomb.
- I have the adventurous heart and spirit of Columbus minus the whole aggressive syphilis and hatred for Native Americans.
