Bee Swap!

July 10, 2008

I swear, you can’t make things like this up. Last year, published a Sex advice from a beekeeper article, featuring advice from yours truly, among others. Now, here’s what I found in my inbox this morning:

My name is Elisha and I am a Casting Assistant for ABC’s hit show “Wife Swap.” I hope you don’t mind me contacting you. I’m currently searching for a beekeeping family! Are you a beekeeper who shares their passion of beekeeping with their family? If you are interested in sharing your family philosophy with us, I would love to hear from you.

The premise of “Wife Swap” is simple: two moms from two different families get the opportunity to swap lives for a week to experience what it’s like to live a different lifestyle – and to see what they can teach each other about their own!

Potential families can live anywhere in the United States. Families must consist of two parents that have at least one child between the ages of 5 to18. Families that appear on the show will receive a financial honorarium for their time and commitment. If you refer a family that appears on the show you would receive $1,000.

If you and your family are interested in participating, email elisha.deleon (at) …ASAP with a description of your family, photos (if available) and contact information.

And wouldn’t ya know it, Michelle and I are expecting our first child in November, so we don’t qualify (cuz I’m sure Michelle would have jumped all over the idea, otherwise). So sad.

But hey, if you go for it, tell them you read about it here. Thousand bucks, yo.
