You know the tune and the pageant. How's about our own online pageant? (Those who know me are wondering how long I've been nursing this idea, eh?
Okay, Ms. Universe has no talent competition, which is good since we all have HG, right? They do have evening gown, swimwear, and interview. There is also most photogenic and ms. congeniality. Can you think of other things?
I think the evening gown competition would be funniest with all of us in our stinky pajama finery...mats in our hair, no toothbrush in site, and acne all over the place from lack of washing. Did I mention the stink?
Next would be swimwear, which could, now that I think of it, be pretty entertaining since all HGers are pregnant. I can see a required two piece swimsuit. Again, stink points would be awarded. But I'm torn as to what would be worth more points...the corn rows on my legs, the dreadlocks at my bikini line, or the bushes under my pits.
And finally, we have the interview portion. I think this should take place in an ER with a belligerent practitioner who sees no reason for our presence in their establishment...even though our lips are chapped (again, colored chapstick to coordinate with swimwear will be issued), we've not held anything down in six days, we're spilling ketones in our urine, we've lost 10 pounds in as many days, and did I mention we can't keep anything down? I believe this is the proper setting for the interview. Points awarded for attitude, fight, and colorful language.
Can't wait to see what you all add.
