Alternately titled, I am Silly.
So have you heard about the latest craze, planking? It's actually not a plank at all, not an elbows and toes plank. (although I'm a big fan of that plank) Go to Facebook and search "planking" you'll find entire pages devoted to planking. There is no purpose. It's just for giggles. People lie face down, arms to the side and photograph themselves being dumb. My trainees are all about planking. They think it's hilarious. So, being the good trainer I am, I promised to plank all over Phoenix and send them daily updates. Always willing to humiliate myself for a joke, that's me.
First, I planked on Camelback Mountain. I consider this a "danger plank" because that rock was HOT. Eric got me mid-plank, my elbows are up in more of a cobra pose. But it surely counts.
I planked at work, in our booth. Scrubs plank. Are you getting the idea now? Also, I need a haircut. That mop is getting out of control.
Of course I had to plank in front of the Hard Rock Cafe. The curious onlookers are actually my coworkers. Some of them know me better than others. The "others" were a bit perplexed. Those that know me well just chalked it up to me being me.
Taking it up a notch at the Diamondbacks game. I am balancing on the folded up seats. Once again, in full view of my bosses and the general public. I have no shame. What can I say? I love my trainees.
Wednesday afternoon, I got a text from Creeshy. Word of my planking had apparently gotten out. My presence was requested on the convention floor. They had scoped out the perfect spot in another booth. You can imagine my embarrassment at explaining planking to another vendor and then asking permission to lie prone in the middle of his display. What I learned from this is that I have scary calves.
So there you have it. Planking. Now that I'm back on Texas soil my planking days are over. But it was fun while it lasted!
Have you ever done something just for the sake of silliness? Do tell!
