I am a sucker for a dare (marie, I know you are too, so you'll understand) and today Jessica dared me to wear this pink lei around my neck for the next seven days. I have to keep it on while I'm sleeping, I have to keep it on in the shower, I have to keep it on at all times. For the next seven days. I am allowed to take the lei off at midnight on July 4th. (At which point I'll be able to claim that "I wore a lei for seven days straight" as a New Thing.)
I don't win anything for completing the task. Just the honor of having completed it. It's a dare and I took it and now I'm stuck with this pink, plastic thing around my neck for the next 168 hours, or so. Wish me luck.
