Ice Bucket Challenge

It seems to be the “in” thing these days to go around dumping buckets of ice water on your head.  Yes, it’s all for a good cause.  To raise money and awareness for ALS.  And I think that’s great.

Considering this has been going on since the height of summer, I’m not really seeing the “challenge” in all of this.  It’s a great way to cool off in the summer heat.  No challenge in that.  As a kid we used to have fights with ice cubes all summer long, sticking them down each other’s back, dousing each other with ice water.

So I’m waiting to do the Ice Bucket Challenge.  I’m waiting until December or January, maybe Super Bowl weekend.  You know why?  Because to me the real “challenge” will be pouring ice cold water over myself while standing outside in sub-zero temperatures and not freezing my tatas off!

Now THAT will be a REAL Ice Bucket Challenge.  And I will also donate money to the cause.  Once I’m done thawing.



I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!

Tell me what you think!
