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.
A few months back the lovely Shannon Colleary included my Muffinlicious video in a post she wrote about body image. The post was picked up by Huffington Post and my Muffin top was seen by more more people than any of my body parts to this point in time. Including parts exposed while drunk in my ’20’s.
I reached out to Miss Shannon and happily did lunch with her. She is my food group. We talked about doing a video together. She is a sport. She showed up at my house and when I sprang the idea I had on her she committed like a Broadway thespian. I had the premise, the improv lines are all her.
So, what if there was a product that made your life much easier. This is what it might look like.
