Les Miles apparently melts when you dump gatorade on him.  Or, he is trying to savor every drop.

Date of Urge:  08-21-2008

Time of Urge:  Approximately 5:30 p.m.

Location of Urge:  Kid’s soccer practice

Description of Urge:  While driving, I noticed that some young kids were having soccer practice at a nearby field.  Next to the sidelines was an orange water cooler, which I would assume was full of ice water.  The coach of the team was standing approximately 5-10 feet in front of the cooler as parents drove in and out of the parking lot, dropping off their kids.  I seriously debated parking the car, running over and picking up the cooler and dumping it on the coach while screaming about the championship we had just won. 

Why the urge was controlled:  Fear that I would throw out my back, yet again, while lifting the water cooler.

What do we consider an almost uncontrollable urge? Well, first we need to establish a definition. Almost: al*most, [awl-mohst], -adverb, meaning: very nearly. Uncontrollable: un*con*trol*la*ble, [un-kuh n-troh-luh-buhl], -adjective, meaning: incapable of being controlled or restrained. Urge: [urj], -noun, meaning: an involuntary, natural, or instinctive impulse. Therefore, an almost uncontrollable urge is an involuntary, natural or instinctive impulse that is very nearly incapable of being controlled or restrained. These A.U.U.'s occur mostly in public settings, as there is very little to constrain a person in a private setting. The urge is frequently overcome due to any number of things, such as: societal standards, fear of retribution, fear of prosecution, fear of being left alone after having embarrased a significant other for the last time, etc. This is simply a list of several of the AUU's that we have had.
