(This post is part of the Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge hosted by WEGO Health. I will be writing a post a day for all 30 days. You can learn more about it here: http://info.wegohealth.com/HAWMC2012.)

Today’s prompt was to write, either in script style or dialogue, about an awesome conversation I had this week. It was between me and my brother. I went home for Easter and he was telling me about a speech he had to write for one of his college classes.

Brother: “So I have to write a special occasion speech for my speech class. It’s due tomorrow.”

Me: “Way to wait until the last minute, dude. So what are you going to do it on?”

Brother: “I don’t know. I was thinking about doing an ode to my DVR, but I don’t know if I can stretch it out long enough to meet the 2 minute requirement.”

Me: “I love my DVR. I don’t know what I ever did without it.”

Brother: “You should help me think of a topic. ”

Me: “You could do it on me and how awesome and courageous I am to live my life as a puddle.”

Brother: “Can you write some stuff down for me as an outline so then I can practice it a few times?”

Me: “Sure, but you have to video tape it and mention my blog several times so people can read it. You can help me spread awareness about hyperhidrosis!”

So, my brother is doing a speech about me. If he actually does videotape it, which I doubt he will since the professor isn’t requiring this one to be recorded, he would probably kill me if I posted it on my blog. But I’d love to have a copy as a personal keepsake.

Random thought: I guess I’m more old school than I thought. Video tape it? As in, VHS? LOL. How about record it with your iPhone and post a link to YouTube? This IS the 21st century.
