It’s my guess that ”Black” was called that because it was the first thing that came into Lexi’s mind. My guess is that if ”Black” had been playing with a bucket, chances are she would have been called ”Bucket” at that moment.
And speaking of buckets, like any self-respecting grandmother, I’m on Facebook and Twitter, and it seems like most of my friends have already done the Ice Bucket… oops, sorry, I mean #icebucketchallenge. (See! I know how to use a hashtag!)
The ALS Association has raised tens of millions of dollars in just a few weeks by getting everyone from George Bush to Lady Gaga to pour freezing-cold water over themselves. I think it’s a wonderful cause and I hope that all the money raised helps find a cure. BUT… I’m very concerned.
With millions of people all over the world pouring ice-cold water over their heads, someone is bound to get hurt! I mean, my God, it must be a major shock to the system! Not to mention that you could easily pull a muscle or throw out your back hoisting a big bucket of ice water over your head like that! I know I would. And it’s only a matter of time before it leads to a pneumonia outbreak! Talk about going viral!!!!
What I want to know is who will be there to support all the innocent victims of ice-bucket related injuries?!? Now is the time to pull together and pull out our wallets in support of this important cause. I know there are at least 5 million people out there who truly understand the dangers of bodily contact with extreme cold.
Finland, you’ve been challenged!
