Movember is the Manliest Month (and also the most nerve-wracking)
During the month of Movember, I’m on a road trip completing a Manly Bucket List to raise awareness and funds for the Movember charity. And so far, it’s been an absolute blast.
For the first five days in Las Vegas, I had a film crew follow me around and capture my every move. And that…well, that was nerve-wracking.
I’m much happier when the destination is the subject, not me. So I was clearly out of my element, and I think it shows a little in the video. I rationalize it by telling myself it’s all part of the bigger plan. I knew this was all about pushing my limits — I mean, I am the least manly man I know completing a manly bucket list, so I was at a disadvantage from the word “go.”
And you know what, that’s okay.
At the end of the day, this is all for charity. My Dad was a prostate cancer survivor, so if this helps get a conversation started about men’s cancers among folks like him, then mission accomplished.
I think the film crew did a fantastic job with a very skittish host, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.
So grab yourself a cup of tea (or something more manly) and watch as I fly a fighter plane, jump off the Stratosphere, slide down a shark slide, and get my ass spanked at a German brew house. All in the name of charity.
