I thought I had avoided it. Two weeks had gone by and no one dared challenge me in the #icebucketchallenge to encourage donations for ALS. I made a donation. I thought I was safe. And suddenly… a Facebook notification. I’d been tagged in a video.
Now, I usually don’t participate in these kinds of things, but I was nominated by my boss and she might fire me or something if I don’t follow through (just kidding… I think).
Since it’s for a good cause, I decided it was worth the humiliation. I also made my donation, and that’s the important part. Forcing your friends to dump ice on themselves is just a nice distraction and a great way to get people to spew expletives 🙂 Thankfully, I bit my tongue and kept it clean, but I did end up having an audience as my neighbor sat outside on her porch and watched it all go down. At least I had a nice venue for freezing my ass off!
Donate today! Especially if you plan to stay dry and avoid 10 pounds of ice poured over your head.
