I have just discovered the best frickin’ website ever. I was looking for an inexpensive alternative for a book cover design for the new improved Flirtini with Disaster: The Single Girl’s Guide to Self-Sabotage, (which will be rereleased later this week), and I read about this fabulous site. So, it’s called Fiverr. And the basic premise is that people from all over the world offer to do things for you for $5. Yeah, $5, that’s the cost of a mid-shelf shot of bourbon…and, I can’t believe that I’m going to say this, but some of these services are better than a shot of bourbon. The categories range from Gifts to Translation to Tech to Music to, my personal favorite, Fun and Bizarre.
Here are some of the offerings I found on Fiverr:
I will sing a depressing Happy Birthday as a mouse for $5.
I will do a Mini Numerology Report for $5.
I will sell 30 pics of my sexy feet for $5.
I will turn any song or speech into a GOAT edition video for $5.
I will claim to have made love to your friend's mother in a personalized video for $5.
I will translate English to Hindi or Punjabi for $5.
I will draw you in anime style for $5.
Of course, being a struggling writer, this seemed like a feasible way to make Mama some whiskey money, so I started pondering what I would do for $5. This is what I’ve come up with so far:
I will tap dance in a sock monkey costume to “Baby Got Back” for $5.
I will share my no-fail hangover remedy for $5.
I will scare you out of the hiccups for $5.
I will share the Perfect Deviled Egg recipe for $5.
I will break up with your boyfriend/girlfriend for you for $5.
I will walk up and kick a complete stranger in the shin and say you sent me for $5.
I will write any message on a turtle and send you a picture for $5.
I will shame you out of any bad behavior for $5.
I will read you a Dr. Seuss bedtime story for $5.
The list goes on and on…think about it…what would you do for $5?
