I’ve had a few questions, so I thought that I would provide some behind the scenes explanations:
As you can tell by the terrible look on my face, the toothbrush water was by FAR the coldest. Since I was actually standing in my bathroom, I only filled the bucket 1/4 of the way full which made the water COLD since I was able to put more ice relative to water.
Yes, I did get water ALL over my bathroom floor. Oops.
Bonus points if you saw the Boston Marathon coffee mug.
I was home alone at the time, so I had to McGyver a holder for my iPhone. It involved my son’s playdoh and a kitchen table chair.
I never got used to the cold water. EVER. In fact, I had a headache after I got done.
The video was pretty fun to make, I can see why I have 10,000,000,000 of them in my feed. I should note that mine was done completely on my iPhone. Free apps for the win!
Finally, at first I wasn’t a big fan of these videos.
But now that I am doing it, I love them!! I kept thinking that as part of the challenge, people making the videos were choosing to NOT donate and instead were choosing to bring attention to themselves. You know, kind of like having a blog….or twitter…or Instagram…Oops. But, as it turns out, they raised a bunch of money and now I know that ALS isn’t something to do with baseball but instead a debilitating disease. So, kudos to whomever created the challenge (baseball people, ironically) and humbug to those who complain that it is either 1) taking away from other fundraising or 2) you’re sick of them.
