The Other Side: Fat Chew 101

By Kellyanne

Hey fat chewer, want to chew the fat with me? 

Can you sell a story today?

Or do you sell the act of writing a story to the reader?

Question for the fat chewers: Why would you build a feud when you can offer the fan an opportunity to be the one who captures a viral Instagram video? 

Yeah, a story will pay off in the long run and give everyone a sense of accomplishment, but we aren't entirely living for the future anymore, are we? 

That's dark. Maybe too dark. Let me strike a match in this coal mine of a life I live. 

I'll tell you what was cool. A well-known superstar wrestler called me out on social media, saying she wanted to wrestle me. 

I'll tell you what wasn't cool. A well-known superstar wrestler called me out on social media, saying she wanted to wrestle me. 

Is it cool or not? I don't know. I don't think anyone should be eager to get into the ring with me. Explaining that to people can be difficult. It will hurt you. I don't want people thinking they can jump into the ring with me and it's going to end in a massive hug-fest, bouncy castle, fun party. 

The good news is that it's a sign of respect. I love that. It's important to want to do something out of respect and not out of leveraging yourself against someone else's accomplishments. 

Things get so blurry in wrestling you never know if you are doing the right thing or not. There is no wrestling bible, and even if there were, someone would have discredited it, making you feel stupid for adhering to its values by now.  

Man, how liquid do we have to be at the moment? You have to shift your attitude towards ANYTHING and EVERYTHING at the drop of a hat. 

People say "pivot" a lot more now. Have you seen/heard that? Everyone is dropping "pivot" into their vocab when they're trying to sound like they know what's going on. How can you say "pivot" in what you're explaining and pretend to have knowledge?

Mice in a maze pivot.

I'm a big fat mouse, chewing fat with my fellow fat chewers talking about selling stories. Give me a high five. Just high-five the screen for now. 

You've been reading these for a while; well, you've at least seen the picture. Here is a match I thoroughly enjoyed. We hit each other hard and left it all out there ( lame cliché, Kelly ). The best bit about it? We haven’t spoken since. It only picks up when we have to fight again, and when that happens – boom.
