A friend of mine posted something on Facebook about a squirrel in her car. I then added a witty comment to the post. Later, I got this message:
“You shouldn’t have commented or liked my last status! Hahaha! Now you have to pick from one of the below and post it as your status. This is the 2016 Breast Cancer Awareness game. Don’t be a spoil sport. Pick your poison from one of these and post it as your status.
1. Just found a squirrel in my car!
2. Just used my kids to get out of a speeding ticket.
3. How do you get rid of foot fungus?
4. All of my bras are missing!
5. I think I just accepted a marriage proposal online?!
6. I’ve decided to stop wearing underwear.
7. It’s confirmed I’m going to be a mommy/daddy.
8. Just won a chance audition on America’s got talent!
9. I’ve been accepted on master chef.
10. I’m getting a pet monkey!
Post with no explanations. Sorry, I fell for it too. Looking forward to your post. Ahhh don’t ruin it. (Don’t let the secret out). And remember it’s all for the 2016 Breast Cancer. SORRY!”
I replied with:
do you know how much time I’ll have to spend plotting revenge?!
Gosh this is gonna be a lot of work”
I usually don’t bother with these nitwit challenge things and I’m buggered if I can figure out how this helps to cure cancer but I figured that it’d be a good excuse to say something stupid and I wasn’t in the mood for coming up with excuses that didn’t make me sound like a dick.
I looked over my choices and settled on number four: “All of my bras are missing!” I posted it and waited for my list of participants.
Surprisingly, there were only two. I sent out an explanation to them and pasted the message that I’d received. I also added:
“So this message meant that it was my turn to make folks play the 2016 Breast Cancer Awareness game.
And now it’s yours. Unless you don’t want to.”
One of the participants accepted the task, the other didn’t. I didn’t make a stink since I was pretty close to not bothering either.
A little while later, I found that none of the others who’d commented or reacted to my friend’s posting had joined in. I haven’t decided if I feel good or bad about this.
At least this blog has helped me to make my peace with looking like an idiot.
BTW, none of my bras are missing.
I did let Pam know what I was up to and showed her the message that I’d gotten. Her immediate response was “You’ve gotta post “All of my bras are missing!”
I’m thinking either “Great minds” or “We’ve been married too long”.
