Kasie West Takes a Dare

Hi, everyone! Apparently I love making a fool of myself. See video below for evidence.




And there it is. The proof. :)

Next week on the blog is Megan Shepherd. So don't you think we should allow her to make a fool of herself too?? Leave your dares here for Megan.

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Kasie West writes YA paranormal and contemporary. She graduated from Fresno State University with a BA degree that has nothing to do with writing. She earned her masters in Junior Mint eating (which is awarded after eating your millionth King Size box....and is now working on her PhD). She loves sappy alternative rock ballads and reading way past her bedtime.
Her debut novel PIVOT POINT came out with HarperTeen February 12, 2013. And her contemporary novel THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US will be out July 2, 2013.

    1. Ha. Well, that's something. I really did think I was going to face plant into the ground.

  4. I agree with Elsie! I remember doing that as a kid and I probably wouldn't even get all the way around now!

    1. I'm sure you'd make it. It was really just gravity. Ha.

  5. Ha!! That was fun to watch. I loved the analysis after. :)

    But seriously, you made it most of the way around. That's better than I could do.

    1. I know I should feel good about making it most of the way around. But as a kid I could do 15 turns. I was a champion! (or something) A champion!! That video marked a sad day. lol

    1. My daughter was so cute, right? So logical and stuff. You could almost hear the eye roll in her voice. Ha.

  8. That's awesome. I remember being able to do that when I was little on the playground too! At least you stayed on the bar. I'm certain that I would have fallen flat!

    1. I think my memory of doing it on the playground when I was little was a little too real. It made me think I could do it again. Ha.

  9. Lol! I love how your daughter is like "JUST DO IT MOM. You won't DIE."

    1. Ha. Yeah, had I been able to make it around more than once, I'm sure that would've been the next stage. Barf. :)

      And thank you! I hope you enjoy PP.

  11. Oh my gosh, this reminds me so much of when I got on a bike for the first time in years and realized how very far away the ground was...

    You win the internetz for this, Kasie. That was AWESOME

    1. How come things are so much scarier as adults? Is it because we fear injury more? Ha.

  12. I remember the bar spinning champion at our school--a girl named Heather. I was in awe of her.

    Love this post, Kasie.

    1. That's funny that you remember her name. :) As a side note, I was also the pull up champion. I can't do those anymore either. Ah, youth, where have you gone? As another side note, have you ever seen "17 Again" with Zac Efron? One of my favorite lines is right after he turns 17 and as he's in PE he keeps saying: "Wow, we're in such great shape. This is awesome." Ha. Totally relate.

    2. Yes! I have seen it. I loved the scene when his friend asked him what he was eating and he replied "I don't even know, I just know I'm hungry. All. The. Time."

  13. Kasie, you're the best. I had totally forgotten about this little playground trick. Pretty sure I wouldn't have gotten that far. :)

    1. I demand all to go try it. I promise gravity is the only thing that got me that far. :)

  14. Ha! I used to do those tricks all the time, and, yeah, I also attempted one a few months ago with my kids at the playground...and it was not so pretty. Your attempt gets a 10 compared to mine! ;-)

    1. I'm sure your attempt was great. You just weren't dumb enough to record it. :)

  15. Your daughters commentary is hilarious.

    1. Right? That's my favorite part. She just wanted me to hurry so she could go play. She didn't care about the possibility of a face-plant like I did. :)
