I have this friend. Her name is Kim.
One of the reasons I love Kim so, so much is that this? This right here? IS ON HER BIO PAGE.
All of you know Kim, right? If not, take a minute. Go browse through her stuff. Anything you’ll find will probably involve 1) her falling down, 2) her being awesome, 3) a combination of the two.
I don’t even remember how I met Kim, to be honest. But I had contacted her through her blog, when I was but a wee blogger myself, and we had touched base when someone I work with started talking to me about a local blogger they read. Who used REALLY salty language. And I got scared, because I was 24 at the time and WAS NOT SO PRIVATE IN MY BLOGGING TOPICS, and he said, “Yeah. Check out MissZoot.com if you like to read funny stuff.”
WHEW. I was so glad it was her and not me.
Over the last few years, Kim and I have taken to bitching at eachother via email weekly. It’s my favorite part of the week, really, because whenever I see an email from Kim come in, I light up at the chance to go “OH MY GOD, I KNOW, ME TOO, HIGH FIVE, BEER SOON?”
Kim has a well documented fear of heights. So, naturally, as is the way of Those Who Are Awesome, she decided that the right way to conquer those fears is to BE PUSHED OFF THE EDGE OF A SKYSCRAPER. (.. for charity, people.) She is our fearless representative of Rocket City Mom in helping raise much needed funds for our local YMCA chapter.
SO! If you like Kim, and you want her to conquer her fears, donate! Or if you don’t like Kim (also, hi, YOU’RE NUTS), and you want us to push her off of a building, donate! Either way, you’re doing great things for a great cause and helping lots of underprivileged families have access to after school care, health and fitness options, and community support.
Also, I think we TOTALLY need to get her a camera helmet. The video will be (OBVIOUSLY) amazing.
