"Ain’t Too Proud To Beg" – The Temptations
Yes, the title of this post is very EMZ, but it seemed appropriate.
As you all know I applied to be on Nuun’s Hood To Coast relay team. The deadline was last Wednesday and the “winners” will be announced this Wednesday. Let me say now that this has been the longest week of my life. It even beats out the last week of my pregnancy. Spud was 10 days early so I didn’t know my last week was my last week; capisce?
Anyways, about this last week. I think I have officially driven Colin nuts. A lot of “do you think it was good enough?” and “do you think I’ll make it?” type questions. I know that he does support me and does think my entry was good. Pretty sure, though, that after asking him for the 20th time in one day he just starts to humour me. The other thing I’m doing is practically stalking the Nuun Facebook page. Thankfully I’m not the only one. I know it’s silly since there is no announcement for another 2 days. But I figure it doesn’t hurt to make sure they know I’m still out there and stressing!
So back to the title. I know that this isn’t a popularity contest. If it were the team would be made up of the most popular “big” bloggers. Which would be cool. However, I wouldn’t be on it. As I was reminded: If you don’t get what you want, it’s probably because you didn’t ask for it.
Therefore, I’m asking. Again.
Please let Nuun know on Facebook that I should be on their team. Will it make a difference? Who can say? For all I know, they’ve already selected their favourites. But at this point I’m not above begging.
Back to stalking ’til Wednesday…
