Several weeks ago, my cousins fromKansasstarted posting pictures on Facebook of them planking in various places around their house. Of course, they didn’t start the craze, just decided to follow it and spread the joy. They sent me a picture of them planking on the front steps of their house. I bet their neighbors were entertained.
For anyone who doesn’t know about the planking craze, you basically lay face down somewhere and have someone snap your picture. I doubt anyone knows who started this or why.
While watching the Vikings game on Sunday night, it crossed my mind to plank, so Nate suggested the back of the couch. I planked and he snapped the picture, which I immediately sent to my cousins and posted on Facebook. Surprisingly, the pic has gotten a lot of comments with friends and family. Personally, I just enjoy being a little weird.
Anyway, something strange happened. Every time I look at the picture, I can’t help but giggle. I have no idea why it gives me such entertainment, but it does. Perhaps that’s why the originator of the planking craze started it; maybe they were just trying to entertain themselves. I’m always for cheap entertainment.
So without further adieu, here’s the planking pic from Sunday night.
