How I did it: Get a group of young teens together and sooner or later, they will do something to create trouble. There were 5 of us at that particular lunch table back in 1982. I dont remember what brought the subject up, but I do remember the dares.
Once the dares start, its a forgone conclusion, whats being dared WILL happen. The only question is where will the Double Dog Dare fall? In this particular case, the Double Dog Dare fell on me. I either had to start a lunch room food fight in a room with about 100 to 200 young teens or get labeled a chicken. I was a 13 year old boy. NOONE was going to call me Chicken.
The only good thing about the lunch that day was the tater tots. It made it possible to start it without starting a huge mess. A handful of tater tots launched across the lunchroom and within minutes, chaos reigned.
I didnt get caught for starting the fight and avoided getting in trouble for it. I heard someone else took that fall. Sometimes the stupid stuff we do has the most fond memories attached. Read how I did it… 8 months ago
How I did it: Hired a local field and put down some tarpaulin. Invited all my friends, bought food from Costco (beans, mashed potato, bread, noodles etc) and blew a whistle and said go! We put out obstacles like when you go paintballing and we just ran around throwing food for half an hour! Read how I did it… 13 months ago
I was pretty upset when I accidentally spilled 2 pounds of flour all over my boyfriend’s kitchen the other night. He wasn’t upset and suggested a food fight, but I declined. I was not in a happy mood, and I don’t think flour + your own home is a great place to start a food fight. Aren’t these things supposed to happen someplace that you don’t have to clean up afterward?!
Anyway… now I feel like I missed a great opportunity! =/ 23 months ago
