What is the coolest thing you could think of to do on a Saturday night? Getting wasted and sleeping with strippers? Driving cross country and going skinny dipping in the ocean? Spinning in a circle until you can’t see straight and eating pop tarts until you throw up? Juggling for 5 minutes for Habitat for Humanity?
Well if you answered yes to the last one then you’re gonna be jealous of me. Laura signed the juggling club to perform a 5 minute skit on Saturday night at 10:30. I agreed to do it because, lets be honest, I’ll agree to pretty much anything. I figured “Hey, it is only going to be 5 minutes and I’ll get to hang out with Laura.” No problem, right?
Yeah, no problem as long as other people would do it with me. But no one else wants to do it. Not even Laura. But I think Habitat for Humanity does great work, and I don’t want to blow them off, so I agreed to do the show by myself. This brings up an interesting problem, however. I’m not a very good juggler. I can juggle 3 balls or 3 rings. That’s it. With two people I can do some other stuff like passing and stealing, but that’s would require another person. This puts me in the position of having to come up with five minutes of stuff to do. Argh…
So far I have come up with juggling a little bit and taping a stuffed bear to a unicycle and pushing that around. (Since I can’t unicycle, but unicycling is fun.) But I need some ideas. Help! What could I do?
Already vetoed is me performing in just boxers (I think it’d be a good idea), and performing a scene from Rent (Light my Candle, specifically). If anyone out there has other thoughts, I’d greatly appreciate it.
