And then tonight, this showed up in my facebook inbox.
OK pretty ladies, it's that time of year again...support of breast cancer awareness! So last year's game was writing your bra color as your status...or the way we like to have our handbag handy. Last year, so many people took part that it made national news... and the constant updating of status reminded everyone why we're doing this and helped raise awareness! Do NOT tell any males what the status means...keep them guessing!! And please COPY and PASTE this in a message to all your female friends. The idea is to choose the month you were born and the day you were born. Pass this on to GIRLS ONLY and let's see how far it reaches. The last one about the bra went all over the world. ** Instructions: The month you were born is the Place you are going, and the day you were born should be how many months you are gone.... January -Mexico; February - London; March -Miami; April - Dominican Republic; May - Paris; June - Rome; July - Hawaii; August - California; September - New York; October -Puerto Rico; November -Las Vegas; December -Australia. If your birthday is 21st January, YOUR STATUS SHOULD READ: "I am going to Mexico for 21 months". Don't reply to this, put your answer in a facebook status on your wall. Please do it, don't be a spoil sport!.Would someone please care to explain how this raises breast cancer awareness? How does this support ANYTHING? (I'm going to California for 8 months and I'm not supposed to tell anyone what that sentence actually means, how I came up with the where and the length, unless they are female, in which case I'm supposed to spam them with a group facebook message. Yes. That's logical.)
