Naked for #DryJuly

Dry July Logo

Of my 23,000+ Tweets, every now and again there’s one I come to regret. Tonight, full of enthusiasm for Dry July, I may have unleashed such a Tweet.

Having mentioned that my sweetheart had received a box of rather fine and colourful wigs from Minnesota, I was asked for photos of them. Sure I thought. Then another thought struck me. After all, I am fearlessly competing against m’colleague Jason Brown to raise as much money as possible for cancer care in the In Vino Veritas Dry July challenge: a battle of marketing, nerve and boisterous one-upmanship. So I Tweeted:

If my #DryJuly total reaches $150 before bedtime in three hours, *I* will model the now unboxed Minnesotan wigs.

And then, sure I would never even achieve that, my confidence took over:

And if my #DryJuly total reaches $200 by 11pm AEST, I will model ONLY the Minnesotan wigs.

Uh-oh. 10:59:57… 10:59:58… I felt like Jack Bauer… 10:59:59… Yesssss! Safe! Only $185 raised!

But then I was met with some rather disappointed claims that the Dry July site had failed to accept a couple of payments at the last minute. And as I am a man of good faith, (but yet of no faith), I had to accept that this was plausible. And as I can’t possibly fault anyone with such a keen sense of drama, I concede the forfeit. My friends paid real money in aid of adult cancer care for this photograph.

Do enjoy it, but please remember this is not just for fun: sponsor me for Dry July. Every little helps.

Please sponsor me

    There is, of course, a fine line between bravery and foolishness…

    I note you have used the short wig for the coverage of the bits.

    How on Earth did I miss this? Are you softening us up for a DTHS Calender?

    It’s enough if we can have a painless
    life, a family to love and a roof over our heads – most importantly, good
    health. They sit with an anterior tilt of the
    pelvis, shortening the quadriceps, hip flexors and lower back muscles making
    these all stronger which in turn make them work more.
    s shapewear can give the illusion that you have lost several pounds and inches in an instant, without any rigorous diet program or heavy
    workouts in gym.
