Pillow fight!

Saturday night I found myself at a friend's place for dinner and two of the people there were discussing the public pillow fight they had been to the night before.

Apparently, news of the event was circulated via email and text-messaging in a sort of viral, non-organized fashion. No one knew who started the idea or where it came from. The instructions were simply to arrive at Dorchester Square at 7:00pm and to bring a pillow. And to start a fight. Which clearly happened.

According to my friends at the party, the experience was incredibly liberating. They only knew each other--so the other 30 or so people who showed up were total strangers--it seemed that most of the participants did not know one another either.

Imaging the frisson of walking up to total strangers and just letting go with your favourite feather filled comfort device. The event probably saved thousands in psychotherapy bills alone.
