The Post About Chasing Rabbits With {Chad Gibbs}

I'm starting a new series called Chasing Rabbits With _______________. Each week I'll interrogate  someone I know to be more interesting than me. Today, I'm welcoming writer Chad Gibbs to the chase.

I met Chad at a writing conference and we realized we didn't hate each other despite being on different sides of a college football rivalry. He's got a sharp sense of humor, a ginger doctor wife and he's currently working on his 3rd book for Zondervan. Chad also writes an insightful and funny weekly column about being a stay-at-home Dad to new son Linus.

1. What is the strangest/funniest encounter you’ve ever had with a medical professional?
I got one pregnant! 

2. What is the best or worst hairstyle or “look” you’ve ever attempted?
Before my hair started turning white, it was very curly. I was okay with that, but I was also obsessed with The Beatles, so sometime during my senior year of high school I paid a woman $60 to put a relaxer in it. I looked like George Harrison for about twenty-four hours, then my hair started curling on the ends. Sadly, there is no photographic evidence of this day in the life.

3. What is your greatest extravagance?
Probably massages. I can’t walk past a massage chair in the airport or mall without handing them $20 to rub my shoulders. One day I’ll buy one of those chairs from Brookstone that cost more than a car. I hope they don’t give you the floor model though, because everybody and their brother has sat in that thing.

4. What is something your parents still do not know you did?
I don’t think you understand how hiding things from your parents works.

5. Your perfect day would include what three things – not people?
1) Waking up in Paris with {my wife} Tricia, but not in a drugged-and-kidnapped-where-are-we kind of way
2) You know, as long as I’m waking up in Paris, I’m not sure I need two more things to make the perfect day. But to humor you, we’ll say while out walking we bump into Gerard Depardeiu and
3) I get a $20 massage on Montmartre, paid for by Gerard. 

6. What is your favorite word and why?
I like the word ridiculous. My editor had to cut it out of God & Football 7 or 8 times. She told me it was my pet word. Please remember to have your pet word spayed or neutered.

7. Name three things on your bucket list.
  1. Play the Old Course in St. Andrews
  2. Attend a match at Wimbledon
  3. Visit all 7 continents. By the end of the year I’ll only have one left, and it’s the really, really cold one. 
8. What are 3-5 websites/blogs you frequent that other folks should also frequent?
I’m really terrible at Interneting. I check Facebook and Twitter too much. Refresh my email too much, even though new mail pops up without me refreshing. I visit Yahoo sometimes. I read a few soccer blogs that no one reading this would care about, and I read a few travel hacking blogs. I guess if your readers want to learn about travel hacking, they can go here: www.thepointsguy.com This is where I learned to travel the world for (almost) free. However, if you’re in debt or don’t like the idea of signing up for credit cards, I’d skip this one.

Rabbit Readers: What's your greatest extravagance?

Note: I highly recommend Chad's books - so much so that I paid for them. You can actually get Love Thy Rival for free right now on Kindle. Also, follow Chad on Twitter. You won't regret it. You also won't regret working out tomorrow. 

That last bit was a note to myself.
