Approval of my actions came from my three children’s giggles and a big ole belly laugh from my husband of 23 years. These four people who know me best; know me to be silly on occasion, this was one of those occasions.
Planking came naturally to me, both physically and philosophically. Before I planked, I, too, wondered why anyone would bother. Why plank? It’s stupid or I don’t get it, or really? — Really! The truth is, I plank because I can.
Planking, the internet craze in which people are photographed lying face down in unusual public spaces and posted on the internet.
Planking seemed to be the natural thing to do as I traveled with David Spain to New York City so David could appear on the Martha Stewart TV show. When you are doing something surreal, like being on Martha’s show, you might as well be surreal, in a surreal city. I’m not sure how Raleigh would react to such antics, but New York didn’t seem to mind.
I have a couple of favorite planks, so if you ask me which was I enjoyed the most, it would be a toss up between The Food Truck, Grand Central Station, or Taking the Train to Wave Hill.
