22) Something You Never Expected
Hmmmm….let me think….
Oooh! I know just the thing to write about.
So we are going back in time to 2009.
So in 2009 I was 17 years old. That August my youth group went to an amusement park as our last group trip before school started.
We went on all kinds of rides and had fun.
As we were walking along the lot, my friend Anny spotted a booth playing music. We danced around, just being silly…
When this man and woman in suits ask us if we would like to enter a contest.
Now you all know me and contests/free stuff.
I was like sure! What’s it for?
A chance to be in a Jonas Brothers’ music video!
No, no no no no no no no no no no. I hated the Jonas Brothers. Well not them specifically. I just didn’t care for their music or the fact that they were everywhere and on EVERYTHING. There was no getting away from them.
I was like no thank you.
My friend however, really, really liked the group and wanted to enter. But she didn’t want to do it alone. So I said fine, ok.
After all, what are the chances you’ll win? Like never.
So all we have to do is get our picture taken in front of a background and leave our name + phone number. Easy, peasy.
What’s kind of interesting was that we were actually the only ones asked out of the entire group. I guess they just liked our dancing or something.
Four months pass. It’s December and I am concentrating on schoolwork, Winter formal, Christmas, etc. When I come home I get a phone call:
And to my surprise it was the people running the contest. They had chosen ME out of their hundreds of applicants. I was stunned.
They gave me the information on where I needed to go, when, etc. But I answered, no.
I know what you all are thinking. WHAT? WHY WOULD YOU TURN THAT DOWN???!!! (That’s what all my friends said.) Well, I just felt that as I didn’t care for the guys and it didn’t really matter to me, I’d rather it go to someone else.
Besides, you know what’s cooler than being in a Jonas Brothers’ music video? Having turned it down.
Yep, not everyone can say that. But I sure can.
