Ice Bucket

This post is about ice buckets, not the ice bucket challenge (I’m so glad that shit is over). An ice bucket is a bucket for ice. Whoever named it did a good job. You can find ice buckets at restaurants and clubs for chilling champagne and white wines, but their natural habitat is in hotel/motel rooms. It’s usually on the table or dresser, sometimes it’s on the bathroom countertop or by the TV. If your hotel doesn’t have ice buckets, it’s a good sign that you should probably check out. I once stayed in a hotel room that didn’t have a refrigerator, so I called the front desk and asked for a few spare ice buckets. I put some bottles of booze and some mixers in them and filled them up with ice, creating makeshift coolers. It worked, but we had to change the ice every few hours and that got harder and harder to as we got drunker and drunker. I know that they weren’t designed to be coolers, but I wanted you to know that ice buckets are far more versatile than you give them credit for.

Sitting On The Cooler

I spent last Sunday watching football at my friend’s house. It was a playoff game, and we had about twenty people crammed into a living room. Every single seat available was taken. Every spot on the couch was occupied, every folding chair was claimed, and a few people had to stand or sprawl out on the floor. One of our friends arrived too late to grab a seat, so he improvised by grabbing the cooler and using it as a seat. He thought it was a good idea, but he very quickly realized that he made a mistake. He would have to stand up every time somebody wanted another beer. And people tend to drink a lot of beer while watching football. He had to get up every couple of minutes whenever somebody was thirsty. He eventually got so annoyed that he ended up sitting on the floor next to the cooler. The cooler seat is the last place you want to sit at party or get-together. You won’t be able to sit comfortably for an extended period of time and that’s the hallmark of any good seat. Avoid sitting on the cooler. It seems like a good idea, but it’s you’ll end up regretting it every time.
