• Check the closet for appropriately warm clothing. Realize the warmest sweater I have is one with Morrissey's face embroidered on it; get pretty embarassed at the idea of Pitbull seeing me in that.
• Run a few mental bear-survival scenarios. Most important question: can I run faster than Pitbull?
• Brush up on the Pitbull oeuvre. The "Bon Bon" video is pretty dope; consider asking Pitbull not to invite all those scantily-clad ladies along, or I'll just stand around blushing the whole time.
• Check up on Pitbull's entourage. Are there any spots open? Could this be a tryout for a more permanent gig?
• Come up with a polite way to ask Pitbull and Walmart if this is, uh, an all-expenses thing. If not, maybe drop some hints to my Phoenix editors that I'm a little light. Guys? Hello? I know you're reading this, because theoretically you have to. Oh, just gonna ignore me, huh?
