The Amazing Race for The Amazing Race

Wow. This has got to be one of my all time best stories.

On Wednesday night I was talking to my good friend Jonah and was telling him about the show "The Amazing Race", and how I wanted to apply this year. Jonah and I have gone on a lot of trips together and somehow don't grate on each other's nerves at all. I have a lot of respect for him and his abilities, so I thought he'd be a perfect partner for The Amazing Race. For those of you who don't know about this tv-tastic gem, it's basically a race / scavenger hunt around the world.

I meandered to the application site, downloaded the application, and began to check out the requirements. Guess when the due date for the tape was? Friday at 5pm, which meant that we had one day to create a 3 minute video, fill out the two 11 page applications and get some passport sized photos taken. Not one to back down from a challenge due to complete lack of time, I convinced Jonah to get on board.

Axe body spray hovered in the air. No. Not hovered. Stalked. It stalked the air like some impish poltergeist -- ready to find shelter in an unsuspecting host nose. It assaulted my senses about the same time a whiff of something sweet wafted by. Gum of some kind. Ugh. I grimaced.

It’s for my son. I’m here for my boy.

My wife led me through a pack of yapping hyena-girls, and for the first time I heard “Oh my Gawd” actually produce a Doppler effect as I passed quickly by their thirteen-year-old opinions.
