I could do that challenge.
Do you watch Survivor? or any of those reality shows that put the "contestants" through crazy, embarrassing stunts. I like Big Brother in the summer. But my favorite reality show is Amazing Race (finale is Sunday!). The biggest obstacles they face are guiding themselves through foreign countries and getting along!
After watching one of those shows I go back to my little life and comforts of home with new determination. I tackle my chores with gusto. If they had a challenge for sorting clothes, I'd easily whip those young chickies. And I know I could start a fire or find an immunity idol - I am the best "looker" in my house, I find everything my family thinks is gone for good. I'm good at untying knots, in many different materials - shoelaces, thread, cords, ipod earbuds and necklaces. I'm inventive with food, nobody would starve while I'm around.
When I'm in Survivor mode, I make baskets into the trash like I need that immunity idol. I vacuum one more room. I can walk the dog one more block (or treadmill 10 more minutes). But I will never do a show like that because some of the things I could NOT do - another day I'll talk about those. For now, I have fun pretending =)
Ever take the Survivor Approach? More curiously, have you ever thought of doing one of those shows?
