Posted:okay, so, the maternal unit and i were discussing purchasing a vidio camera. my two elder sororal units didn't inspire them at any point to get one, having not done anything particularly vidiotabable (that's not to say they didn't do anything interesting, just not vidiotapeable). at this point, she made the rather brash comment that no other mother in the world has a vidio tape of thier child doing poi on stilts. my response was "bet you a dollar?" So, if anybody's mother has such a vidio, or if you're a mother with such a vidio, please let me know. It'd be good of you to post a link to the vid, but that's not necissary. I'm saving up for a unicycle, so i need that dollar. Don't let me down!

Posted:1) One of the COL videos contains a poi on articulated stilts (if that's the right term) video. Does that count?

2) Someone here should quickly make a video and give it to his/her mother just to ensure you win the bet.

3) Tell your mother that just because no one else in your neighborhood is cool/talented enough to spin poi on stilts doesn't make it non-tape-worthy. On the contrary, MORE SO. Doesn't she want to be able to show off that you can do things that the avg yay-hoo cannot?!?

Posted:in answer to one: i doubt that counts, although his or her mother probably has a copy there's no way of knowing for sure
in answer to two: that's a pretty swellish idea
in answer to three: you missed the point, that's exactly her logic. this is why we were considering getting the camera, so she could make a film of it. she thought it was so unique that no other mother has such a thing

Posted:What's your email address, I'm sure I've got half a dozen of me alone, plus another dozen in my collection of videos.


Either way, you've got 2 choices, win the bet and get a dollar, OR let your mother believe it really is the only one liek it in the world and get your video camera, your choice :P

Posted:Well in that case if you want the camera you should do your best to convince her that it is indeed such a rare thing and thus lose the bet

Very glad I missed the point!! I thought you meant her opinion was that this was a stupid thing to be doing since no one else does it. Now I understand it was a pride thing - my kid does something no other mother's kid does. Fine woman!! cool
