I Was Nominated To Do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

I almost dodged the ALS ice bucket challenge bullet, almost. When everyone was raising awareness by jumping into cold water, aka the Polar Plunge, no one nominated me and I didn’t object. While I still donated to the cause, and I have donated on two separate occasions already this year to ALS because I felt the first donation was insufficient, I was hoping to dodge this one yet again.

This has been going on for what feels like forever and I have yet to be nominated on my personal Facebook account or the Twitter account, which honestly really surprised me but again I was not complaining, until I opened up Facebook Monday night and a co-worker was having ice dumped on his head by his wife. I watched and chuckled at the expressions and reactions of everyone but quickly went straight faced when this guy was nominated, and that guy was nominated, and then I was nominated. Crap.

I am a leader, not a follower, so I am tempted to merely decline and quietly make my donation rather than go with the crowd but what’s the fun in that? It’s hot in Atlanta and I needed a cool down so without further interruptions here is my ALS ice bucket challenge. Please don’t be an attention whore and simply do this just because, at least donate. Even if it’s five bucks I am sure that great organization will make it go a long way.

Enjoy as I try to take the ice like a man. Rest in peace Lou Gehrig. Donate!
