I’m Turning Blue!

...is what I will be saying some other day. But not today.

The Polar Plunge organizers postponed the event due to the fact that the changing tent jumped the gun and took a dive into the lake a little prematurely. Too bad, because the slushy ice on the lake would have been fun to crash through.

No word yet on when it will be rescheduled. I’ll keep you posted.

Since the event was canceled, I discussed with Mr. Wilson recently some other possibilities for carrying through with his pledge to entertain us. For example, we could taser him and video record it. I think that’s worth $500. Other (less extreme) options include having him drink a whole bottle of heinz ketchup, eat nothing but Amigos for an entire week (though that would be hard to catch on film), or have a few mountain bikers ride over him nekkid.

Are the mountain bikers naked, is he naked, or is everyone naked?  I’m confused.

Those are among Mr. T’s tamer ideas. You should hear some of the others; it’s obvious the dude wants me dead, or at least maimed. Frankly, I’m surprised self-immolation isn’t on his list.

I want to clarify two points: first, as far as I know the event has been postponed, not canceled. If it is rescheduled, I’m doing it. Second, despite his desires to the contrary, I haven’t agreed to act out any of Mr. T’s sadistic fantasies. I won’t rule out an alternate activity if the polar bear plunge doesn’t work out, but Mr. T seems to have forgotten that the emphasis here is on helping out the Special Olympics, not wounding Mr. Wilson.

I was thinking Mr. Wilson nekkid. But the nekkid mtn bikers might also be a nice twist to a potential you tube video.

I am not interested in causing permanent harm to anyone. Also, the fact of the matter is, we could raise a lot more money for the Special Olympics if you raised the bar a bit. I am sure it would be quite easy to get at least $500 if you let someone tase and mace you, then posted that video. Just a thought for the next charity.

Clearly Mr. T is more dedicated to the children than Mr. Wilson is.  Mr. Wilson, why won’t you think of the children?
