Treasure Hunt

Let me say a couple of things about this video:
1) I am really like this. Funny and not funny. Wrapped up in one.
2) I had no idea I had a lisp when I speak quietly. I’m going to be ridiculously aware of my whisper-lisp from now on.
3) I say this a lot – “so…” , “well….” , “ok.”
4) I totally was going to tell you what went missing if I found it. But since I didn’t, the mystery remains.
5) If you have no idea what this video is about, read this.

I’m no Dave Barnes, but I had a real nice time.

    You are hilarious.

    Please tell me what you’re looking for.

    I, personally, am looking for a way to have a flat stomach without giving up food. (Who am I kidding? I need plastic surgery for that, not a mere miracle.)

    Our favorite part was you pretending to be on the phone. Aaron and I just laughed out loud, which is an amazing feat since we have both been up since 6:30 with a grumpy son. Kudos to you for being crazy!

    chicken express is sad. So are we. Hope to see you in Athens soon!

    Had to delete the comment I just left because of my misspellings. Good golly, would you please tell us what you are looking for? I loved the LOL video, loved it!

    in real life you do not have a lisp. on that video it sounded like you had a retainer in the whole time. i think it is a problem with your camera not your speech.

    Maybe, a fine piece of jewelery?

    Annie-I love you! You are one of my most favorite people on this earth. Just had to let you know. Thanks for the laugh, I hope you find what you’re looking for. (BTW were you dissing U2?)

    You are a strange person. Did you die your hair blond again? I do the “pretend to be on the phone” thing occasionally. It has saved me from many an awkward moment.

    Annie, Annie, Annie.

    Sorry, just had to say that. I was so impressed by your mad skills in live cinematography. Seriously. And thinking of what to say like that.

    We have the same phone. Why does that not surprise me?

    Your swiping skills are incredulous. Once you swiped up, bingo! That’s totally illogical to swipe up … who swipes up?

    It’s like folding vs. wadding, but not really.

    Oh my goodness, this was hysterical!

    I especially love when you say, “Brother, if there’s anything I’m good at, it’s swiping a credit card.” SO FUNNY!

    Incredulous was not the right word. Sorry to all the writers out there. My journalistic faux pas for the day.

    I didn’t dye my hair….. I hope Dave doesn’t have it…. it is definitely NOT a fine piece of jewelry unless you know something I don’t….. no retainer, just weird video-only lisp….

    That was absolutely hysterical…i’m so glad I just found your blog!

    If it makes you feel any better, I got incredibly bored on a 8 hour solo drive back from Indiana (with a dead ipod), so I decided to video myself doing silly stuff while driving 80mph. I can’t tell you how many funny stares I got from the people passing by me. 🙂
