swapping...and I don't mean aprons

I can't believe I keep forgetting to post about this! I got an email last week scouting me to appear on that show Wife Swap; apparently they're looking for some families/wives who are collectors of some sort and came across my old guide to female action figures. So they contacted me to see if I'd be interested -- how freaky! I can't imagine actually doing a show like that -- even if I was willing to look like an idiot on tv for money, I don't really like the idea of putting small kids on tv since they can't make that decision for themselves. But still, a fast $20K? Good thing Emily isn't old enough or I might have been tempted! That's a lot of college fund...and I guess that's how people talk themselves into doing things like that. You can guess at the jokes Evan made when I told him about the email.


  1. you know, as horrible (and car-crash-riffic) as those shows are, I would pay insaaaaane amounts of money to see evan do one. i can only imagine what kind of ridiculously awesome insanity would ensue.

  2. well he was imagining it himself -- some poor woman is here for a week and he's like "scan this"!! "color this!!" and she's just like "help this man is crazy!"
    Personally I'm really curious about the "collector" angle -- I can only imagine they were looking for collectors that would hate each other's stuff! (Precious Moments, anyone?)

  3. OK, that is FUNNY! And i bet ya'll would have been a heck of alot more amusing to watch than the the usual! ;) BUt i don't blame you for not doing it, i think i would have a complete meltdown if i had to be away from my family like that and have some strange woman in "my place". Ugh.

    Trust us, you made the right decision. Those reality TV crews are morons and they'd have probably swiped all of your stuff when no one was looking.

  5. OMG that would have been absolutely hilarious! I can't say I'm not disappointed!!
