Dancing Salvation Army Kettle Worker…

With Bells on Her Boots and Cayenne Pepper in Her Socks

OK, so go ahead and laugh at my goofy Bell Ringer act. I’m glad I didn’t see this video until after the 6 week long kettle gig was up. It might have made me too self-conscious to fully embrace my inner dork! No wonder why people kept telling me I was a brave soul. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the freezing temperatures I was enduring for 8 hours a day, and everything to do with making a public jack-ass of myself — for a great cause.

Not to ring my own bell, or anything, but before you laugh too much, please note that I received the ’1st Place Bell Ringer Award’ this season from my local SA Corps for raising the most donations. And, despite the fact that I’m not too keen on collecting this sort of ‘thing,’ I have a lucite award which could also double as a paper weight (or something to squash crawling insects with) to prove it! So there!

My lovely lucite spider squisher ... what else am I gonna do with it? Donate it to the Salvation Army?

P.S. Cayenne pepper sprinkled in the socks really does help to keep your feet warm!
