Her nights are blue, but not just any blue;
it is the darkest of all hues.
By her bedside she keeps her booze,
drowning her sorrows, awaking the muse.
Don’t judge so soon ’cause you would, too,
if you walked a mile in her shoes.
Yup, it’s been done.
Okay, here’s the thing. I feel like I took that challenge already when, a couple of weeks or so ago, while sitting outdoor at a restaurant, a glass of iced cold water (with actual ice) was dumped on me by accident. Luckily it was a sunny day and I was wearing black. What’s funny is that, and I wasn’t even thinking about it, a woman sitting next to me laughingly kind of shouted, “The ice bucket challenge!”
And I remembered.
I was like, Ah! That’s it; I just read about this on Mashable and here I am, doing it myself. 😀 In all seriousness, whatever helps raise awareness of any serious condition, it’s a great cause. I was actually one of the people (maybe living under a rock) who wasn’t aware of ALS. So, see? It helps! Take the challenge (and try NOT to get bucket-hurt!) and donate if you can.
Have a good night, amigos.
No diggity! Actually, inspired by a different song that I hadn’t heard in forever and I’m addicted again. It’s called Me Haces Tanto Bien by Amistades Peligrosas (in Spanish, obviously). Here’s a bit of it:
Enséñame a bajar tu cremallera
ya sabes donde voy,
ya sabes que he pasado la frontera
arrancando algún botón,
que tú ya sabes que te pido más madera
y tú pides más nivel,
ya sabes como mantener la hoguera
ya sabes como sabe ya mi piel.
Tú me quemas con la punta de tus dedos
tus manos hacen llagas en mi piel
me abraso con tu lengua que es de fuego
la sangre hierve, o no lo ves?
que tú ya sabes que me tienes cuando quieras
ya sabes como soy
ya sabes que me entra la primera
ahora me sale algo mejor
me haces tanto bien…
Look it up if you like — it’s pretty freaking sexy!
