Question of the Week #263

For $30,000 would you go for 2 months without washing, brushing your teeth, shampooing, or even using deodorant? Assume you can’t tell anyone why.

Seems like this would have been super easy to accomplish in 2020 while everyone was on lock down at home, desperate to avoid COVID-19. Now that we’re all making our way back out into the real world, going without taking care of the personal hygiene would be a little harder to get away with.

Though, honestly, while I will admit that there were days here and there when I just refused to shower since I was only working from home during the quarantine, I couldn’t have gone more than a day without a shower. Because… eww.

If $30,000 was tacked onto the challenge, I’d be tempted to give it a shot. I just don’t think I’d make it longer than a week, though.

But what about you? Would you be willing to basically stew in your own filth for two months in hopes of receiving $30,000? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Ewwww nopes! I can do showering every other day in the winter no problem but I am obsessed with my oral health. I floss/brush/mouthwash twice a day. If I could use deodorant I could MAYBE make it a week without a shower but ughhhh I feel all icky just thinking about it 🤢🤢🤢
