I promised I'd make the first bid for a friend who's being auctioned off at this bachelor auction "extravaganza" tomorrow. I'm all for the objectification of men, but I just don't feel like going. The bachelor list describes them as models, personal trainers, "muscular powerlifters", financiers, or candidates for California governor (really), while my friend's listed as a "pianist/technologist." Seems like a bit of competition. He's braver, or stupider, than I thought. Still, I wonder who actually bids on these people. He's a good guy and all, but, boy, I hope I don't end up having to pay for him.
