Tonight I was set up on a date by a friend of mine who organized the single biggest group date I have ever participated in. And the great thing was that despite my misgivings, I actually had a good time. My date picked me up and then we met the other couples at a local park. There were approximately eleventy million other couples on this date.
We were paired off with another couple and handed a list of things we needed to get photographs of one or all of us doing. The object was to complete as many of the photo ops on the list as we could and make it back to the meeting point within an hour. And yes, there were prizes at stake here people. Our team rushed off and promptly got lost trying to find the first item on the list.
We missed four items on the list but made it back just in the nick of time, and we lost, but hey we had a few laughs so it was all worth it. Our missing photos were: take a photo holding a menu & restaurant napkin, take a photo in a pet store holding animals, take a photo under a public clock at a specific time, and take a photo with a mascot. Here are our photo entries.
Take a photo with your date with our randomly assigned props:
One person in the group has their photo taken hugging a stranger. I think we should have gotten triple points since I had three strangers hugging me:
Take a photo of the reflection all four people in the group in something other than a mirror:
Walk a strangers dog:
