I have this tendency to do a certain kind of thing.
It’s in the name of “I do what I want,” and/or “YOLO,” or … “Whatever.” Ya know?
It’s not that anything I do like this is ever necessarily a bad idea or completely crazy, but there’s always a slight chance for complete disaster.
Monday afternoon, Bert from The Bert Show called me to tell me that he had chosen me to be his contestant for the challenge “Motivation by Humiliation.” Basically, all the hosts choose one listener to represent them in a fitness and weight loss competition and the loser’s host ends up on a Billboard in downtown Atl. Naked.
…holy crap what did I get myself into.
That was my initial reaction. But also a whole lot of “HOLY SHIT THAT’S AWESOME!”
I’m really excited to take part in it. I get a freakin’ ripped (hot) trainer, A.B., who is going to look out for me and do his best to make sure Bert and I don’t lose, it’s going to be a fun journey (and this is the kind of stuff that really motivates me), and hopefully in the end I’ll have a hot body going into my 30th year on this planet. I’m also secretly plotting ways to make the Bert Show cast my BFFs…
Anywho, are you guys ready for the kicker?
I’m 99% sure that the reason I was chosen is because I offered myself up to join in on the losing host’s misery if I should fail them. That’s right. If I lose, I get naked. On a billboard. With Bert. It’s gonna be all kinds of awkward and weird and also funny but probably not in a good way for me.
So that’s it. That’s the latest snafu that I’m stirred up in. I’m going to document and lament and laugh and probably cry, and since it’s already pretty public being on a radio show and all, I figure I should also probably share it all in blog form. What else would a millennial do?
