I did something today that I would never imagine I would be capable of.

While my social anxiety has dissolved in recent months, I did something that I feel took incredible cajones.

Ozzy Osbourne and family have started filming a show on CBS called "The Osbournes: Reloaded." My brother, cousin, friend and I all went to the taping tonight. In between taping, they had segments in which a few people would come up on stage and do different stuff for prizes.

One of the segments, the host said "Alright, I need a few tough looking guys to come up on stage."

My heart started pounding, the voice in my head went ape****, and I slowly started walking towards the stage. BAM, lights were focused on me and 6 other guys. 600 people had their eyes on me. I kept thinking to myself "what the **** am I thinking?"

Next thing you know, we're told to dance to 'I'm a Little Tea pot.'

Music starts playing and I start dancing. There I am... A tough looking guy dancing to 'I'm a Little Tea Pot.' Suprisingly me and the guy next to me were voted for the next round. Now my heart is pounding. I feel a bit nervous and suck it up. Now we have to stand still and without laughing, have the host sing to us a love song... Guess who won?

I got a World of Warcraft Battle Chest set, but because I'm not too into the Warcraft thing, I'm selling it. That's irrelevant however, because the feeling I got after I came off stage was the most incredible relaxation I've felt in a while. The next thing that came into my mind was you guys. I thought to myself that the greatest cure for SA is to simply make an *** out of yourself on purpose. The more people you do it in front of, the better.

Anyway, Ozzy played a few songs at the end and it was f-ing amazing. We had mosh-pit seats, and I was going f*cking wild.

Awesome! You're pretty brave for doing that, especially when you didn't know what you'd get asked to do once you got up there. I went to see David Copperfield once, thinking we'd just be sitting there watching the show. But he was pulling people out of the audience throughout the show and I was terrified that he'd pick me! I was relieved when he didn't lol. I'm glad you had fun, and congratulations on your prize!

I'm a Little Teapot....CLASSIC!

We used to sing this sing calisthenics in high school marching band. Tree trunks - where you bend your waist in four directions - right forward left back for 1 2 3 4.
Well, if you put the moves to the music, you get an interesting result. Also, we replaced the last line to "Sock it to me baby, let it all hang out!" :lol

We actually did this for our parents :lol.

Anyway - good for you on doing this! I can imagine you doing something like this. :boogie :boogie :boogie

A truly inspiring story. Thanks for sharing. Reminds me of my partying days when I used to get up in front of everyone and do some crazy dance. I wouldn't done it without being drunk though. Now even when I do get drunk, I don't do anything like that.

Hey,

thank you all for the kind replies.

I live near Hollywood, and yes, the Osbournes have a new show coming out. Again, the show was stupid, but the 3 songs afterwards made it amazing.

Anyway, I encourage you all to go out and make asses out of yourselves. I know it's terrifying, but it truly seems like a great cure for SA.

I hope to hear some good stories soon.
