Dream Catcher

I see things like this and immediately begin mentally calculating my odds of winning the lottery if I were to go get a ticket...NOW. No, NOW. No...wait for it....NOW. He is living my dream. Came in the black of night and plucked it out of the little proverbial cloud hanging above my sleeping head.

Caleb sent me the link this morning, I don't know, just in case I wasn't quite filled to the brim with Job Boredom. To make sure there wasn't the slightest chance that I could feel even a glimmer of satisfaction.

Not that there was any danger of that happening.

Apparently the guy was sponsored by Stride gum to visit all of those amazing places. And I figured hey, if some Joe Schmoe could do it, I could right?

This is Caleb's email response to my indignant whining:


Dear Mr. STRIDE GUM
You don’t know us but we are a young couple who saw this crazy video online.
To make a long story short… we need $500 GABILLION dollars to travel the world.

Please send to our home address via FedEx.

Thank you in advance for this wonderful opportunity on your dime.

Sincerely
The Nelson’s
AKA Mr. and Mrs. Moocher



I think they'd take us seriously, right? RIGHT?!??!! PLEASE?!?!

I don't see why it wouldn't work. It's worth a shot, right?

Ok, I'm sorry to say this after such a wonderful post, but I think you can appreciate it Kimmy. Does Cabe know there is a grammatical error where he signed your name to the email? That it's just the Nelsons with no apostrophe? I'm a brat, I know.

Could you also ask this guy if I can go with you? Tell him you need someone to document the travels. I want to go SO BAD.

Um...yeah, I don't think so. :) But I can't correct him on every little grammer mistake, or he'd divorce me. :) He does however allow me to proof any letters he sends out. :) So hah! We compromise! :)

That clip made me smile. Loved the parts with the kids dancing, especially Rawanda. Too sweet.

I think perhaps you ought to target a different company; you'll want to create a bit of competition between them, right? I mean, if Stride offered a gabillion to Matt, your odds of getting 500 gabillion from them isn't so good. But hey, find their nearest competitor and perhaps they'll up the gabillions, right? =)
