So my friend Libby calls me today to ask me if I'd like to make a quick $75. "That depends," I told her.

She just had her wisdom teeth pulled and she got an infection. The result is a very swollen face. Tomorrow she is supposed to model for Super Bride Sunday for David's Bridal. She asked if I would fill in for her in the fashion show. I'm a pushover. I said yes. Plus, it's just a couple of hours for $75...way more than I'm making as a stay at home mom!

Now what some of you don't know is that I am super clumsy. I tripped and fell off one step on my deck and broke my ankle a couple of years ago. Oh my God, I have to wear heels and long dresses and walk on the runway. 7 freaking dresses! I am so pale and disgusting and looked fat in all the dresses I am supposed to wear. I bet the other models will be skinny and tan and I'll be plus-sized great white whale!

What the hell was I thinking?

And don't tell me "break a leg" because I probably will.
