So what is up with the “Planking” rage all of the sudden? What I can not seem to wrap my noggin around is why on earth people are all of the sudden so excited to lay down – on things? I was working out one afternoon and I get a text from Mr. Bricks…. “Ava, have you heard about planking?” I’m thinking… hmmm planking, what the heck is he talking about now… Mr. Bricks have you been drinking? I text him back “I’m working out, I’ll be done in another hour or so, ttyl” He proceeds to continue to text me like something ~ really important is going on…
So I decided the following weekend to take a photo as a joke of me “Planking” (or so I thought I was planking) in front of my dream car the Bubble Bee Camaro. So come to find out, I was actually not planking at all, I was “Facedown”. How did I learn this you may be asking yourself? Well wouldn’t you know it, old man Bricks has found the clarification to inform me that I was not planking and I was in fact facedown. He even sent me the link to the video to prove it….
So here I am about a month or so later sitting here asking myself, why on earth does my manager Mr. Bricks know so much about “planking” & “facedown”, yet I still do not have a record deal?I think I am going to tell Mr. Bricks that I think planking is really cool and that I would love to get a picture of him planking in between my two tour buses when they are parked side by side loading up for my US Tour. Yeah, that’s a good idea. ;D
All joking aside here because we all know I’m all about laughing and having a fun time, but really I do not condone ~ anything ~ that can possibly cause harm to yourself or others. Life is precious, I do not feel it wise to risk life and limb just to get a “funny” or outrageous photo. I heard on the news a few weeks ago that someone was even killed falling off of a balcony trying to get a photo of themselves “planking”. So of course have fun, take risks, live your life to the fullest – but do not do anything just for the “shock” value of it. In this humble Greek Girl’s opinion, it is simply not worth it. (in full disclosure, my “planking/facedown” photo was taken in a parking lot away from any space any car could drive on) 😀 Be smart blog friends!
Have a beautiful blessed day!
Ava 😀 xox
