But what? I tried to think of something big and bold, something that would make a statement. Then it came to me. For the first time in my life, I’m going to
participate in a marathon.
It’s a big step, I know and I’m really nervous. Truth be told, I'm not sure I can do it. Still, I think I've found the perfect one for me: iCarly's ‘Great Gobs of Gibby’ marathon on Nickelodeon.
I know what you’re thinking: That’s so lame. Why not The Wizards of Waverly Place instead? Believe me, I thought about that, too, but I've got to start out slow. iCarly’s lack of character development and story arcs make for an easy, even course. The last thing I want to do is sprain an eyelash my first time out of the box. Plus I never did find out what happened after Sam kissed Freddy in last year’s season finale. I’ve lost way too much sleep over it. It’s time to end the madness.
The training starts now. I’ve got fourteen episodes lined up on my TiVo. Today, I’ll watch one show. Tomorrow, two. Before you know it, I’ll be ready. As for carbo-loading? Don’t you worry. I’m a pro at that. I just bought the Frito-Lay Classic Mix bag featuring not one, but TWO types of Doritos! All I need now is a blueberry cheesecake, a case of Yoo-hoo and I'm good to go.
So wish me luck. I know I'm going to need it. Reliving Carly’s bedroom fire will be tough. But I’ll do it in the name marathon participants everywhere.
Hopefully, I’ll make them proud.
