It was quite a gathering including a new member of the group, a self absorbed, slightly rancid, paranoid midget named Tiny. Tiny didn’t always appear so disheveled, but he had just gotten off the airplane from Hawaii, and didn’t have time to change. Tiny also thought his appearance would draw questions from his friends and was never deterred from relating his latest adventures. On this particular outing, he’d been a stuntman in a pseudo-documentary about the volcano eruption.
The rest of the guests including me, were dressed accordingly, casual, but clean. The entire group loved challenges and this party was a particularly challenging one. All of us broke into four different groups, each before four piles of leaves and the leader of each group held a paper clip. The object of the game was to be the first group to move all the leaves in their pile to a dumpster ten feet away, using only a paper clip. It was quite the challenging task!
I have to admit my team came in last, but a good time was had by all and then we just fizzled. Music started to play, refreshments served, and interesting conversations were held.
