Through blogging I’ve met some very cool woman. One of my faves is Shannon Colleary. She is funny and writes a lot about how women’s body images and how our sense of self changes through the years. We feel worse about ourselves when we are young and thin, and finally get some self acceptance when we have parts of our body start to jiggle . And not in a cute way. A crude summing up, but you know. Well, Shannon’s writings frequently get picked up by Huffington Post and on one such occasion she included a video of mine. It went viral and I said, who is this smart, funny woman who thinks I’m a funny, smart woman? We had lunch and a friendship bloomed. I asked if she would make a guest appearance in one of my videos. She agreed and I came up with the idea of Stunt Mom. The woman who appears who can do the work you don’t want to do. It was all improvised and Shannon was spot on perfect.
What would you have your stunt mom do?
