Video Blog Response to Mock-Inspirational Questions – Eek!
Posted by Heather
I last wrote a mock-inspirational post about blog topics, addressing the classic inspirational advice that’s normally given, followed by dishing out some of my unique “inspiration”. It was written mostly as a joke, but also an open invitation (*hint*hint*) to anyone who wanted to write a blog about one of the topics I’d mentioned. I stated somewhat vaguely that I’d gladly link back to anyone who wrote regarding one of those topics provided they either left a comment about it or made a link reference in their own blog. (*hint*hint*)
The joke part is that I really don’t expect someone to write a full article on their own blog about any of the disgusting things I mentioned.
That was the other day… this is now. Now – it’s time to pony up.
In a totally random coincidence, a friend of mine asked on Facebook the other day for suggestions of a similar nature:
Does anyone have a crazy question to ask that I’ll answer on my next video blog? Running outta stuff to talk about! Any questions get a shoutout too 😀
She asked that after I’d already thought of writing my mock-inspirational post, and so I threw her a couple “crazy” suggestions and used the rest that I thought of to write my own entry. Just as with my article, I was just being silly. Aaaaaaand… I somehow kept forgetting the word “video” in there. *Sigh*
Yep, she answered my questions. She had several others she answered as well, but my boyfriend and I conveniently seem to have asked her the worst ones of all.
She was asked these questions and some others, and faithfully answered every one in a video:
- “Have you ever gone into a room for something but forgot what you went in for?”
- “What instruments would you like to play or learn to play?”
- “What TV series do you like?”
- “What’s your favorite pizza topping?”
- “What’s your favorite song at the moment?”
Pretty mundane… right?
Now here are the ones my boyfriend and I asked:
- “How many times do you use the bathroom in a day?”
- “How do you think your life would be different if you always had gas?”
- “Have you tried tasting dog food?”
- “Do you leave the toilet seat down?”
- “Have you ever forgotten to wash your hands after using the bathroom?”
Now do you see why this is embarrassing? Let me again remind you that this is in a video.
To make matters worse, she was posting screen names in her video of the people that asked the questions. THANKFULLY she spared me/us.
I suppose I was asking for it all along (still am)…but seeing it in..a..video.. just made it so much more embarrassing. She said she got a ton of hits that day too, so that could’ve meant hundreds or thousands of people wondering what kind of twisted freak I am.
Keep in mind however, the offer still stands – if you use one of the ideas (for a full entry of at least a few sentences, i.e. a description not just an answer) and reference me, I will gladly post a link back. I think it’d be wonderful.
