This confirms it: I'm a twelve-year-old trapped in an adult body.

Last night I watched a TV show I'd never seen before: Wipe Out. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the show, it is an obstacle course game where contestants have to climb, jump, swing and swim to get to the end. The contestant with the fastest time, or longest endurance (depending on the challenge) wins.

The commentary is sarcastic, reminiscent of Blind Date or Maximum Exposure. The entire time I was watching I thought, "Well this is just immature." They showed face plants repeatedly, in slow motion and in reverse. But every time I saw the same face plant I laughed hysterically. I am still shocked at how immature I am. I laughed so hard I started to cry. There's just something about seeing people fall in awkward positions and bounce off of giant rubber balls in ways that human physiology should not bounce that is hilarious.

So, it is officially confirmed: I am a twelve-year-old although I don't look it. I think I'll go get a Slurpee.


  1. That show is hilarious! I didn't think I liked it at first either, but then...I realized...that I truly think that when people trip, fall, get dirty or fall off giant balls it's hilarious! Plus some of their personalities are simply a riot!

  2. I'll have to check it out. It sounds a lot like Nija Warrior--the Japanese game show. I usually laugh till I cry when I watch that, so I'm sure I will love Wipe Out.

    Also, I love your blog. It's really neato. Your links rock.


  3. Kristina!
    Brock loves that show!! According to that statistic, you are a 4-year old trapped in an adult body! He calls it "the balls" show. He's always asking if "the balls" night. He absolutely loves it! And I love hearing him laugh at it. :)


Tell me something good.
