Better Do It As A Girl... Or else!
One day, in the crazy summer of 2001, my
friend, Levi, called me up and said, "WELL DANG, you wanna do something
really fun?" I accepted with a huge smile!
He wanted me to dress up as a girl and go
to the Cross-Country Team's practice and ask if I could join them! Well,
I sure as tootin' did it!
Maybe I wasn't such a hot girl (or maybe I was). The hood
was my father's lucky running hat as I told them, along with the
goggles being an heirloom. I wore sporty pants, a girlish Band-Aid, watch,
and even a bra, OVER MY undershirt, filled with Kleenex.
The team practiced on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but we only
planned to do it one day (Tuesday). Unfortunately, we weren't so well-prepared,
and the video quality was sub-par. On Thursday, however, when I went back,
to prove that it was a real girl, hahaha, we had the camera
staked out behind a bush.... it was exciting!
Levi had saved up some of his money for his video camera,
and really wanted to get into video editing, so despite how much I did
on this, he resumed "creative control." That's where the Biscuit
and Frogy, Inc. comes in. Shortly after this clever little stunt,
we stopped talking as much and now I bet he's forgotten all about this.
It's not so interesting, just funny to watch the reactions
of the different teammates. It took a few years, but they all eventually
found out I did this. Most don't know that Levi was involved/filming though.
We ended up editing the two days of video together. Originally
on the site, but now, the long and boring version is available. You can thank me later.
