It feels like prom all over again, only this time prom is a lawn chair in my backyard.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that over the last few weeks people all over the world have been participating in the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money and awareness for ALS. It’s been wildly successful, both in raising money and in drenching participants. The challenge begins when a friend nominates you to either have a cold bucket of water dumped on your head, or donate $100 to the ALS Association. People have been nominating their friends with each pour, which has made the challenge go viral. Ice companies are probably LOVING this promotion for the increase in ice sales, as are water companies for increased water bills. Who is not, however, loving the Ice Bucket Challenge? ME.

Why? Because nobody challenged me. Not one single person. I’ve been sitting at home next to my phone and computer waiting for the call to action to fill that bucket o’ mine, yet I’ve received no texts, no videos, no emails, and no Facebook posts. Does no one think I’m worthy of the challenge?

You may not be living under a rock, but have you gotten under the bucket? Are you just tired of hearing about the #IceBucketChallenge? Read more about how Lisa is dealing with being left out in the cold…well, actually out of the cold…literally on Your Tango.
