ok – so there are a group of girls in Cape Town who are about to launch their “team-building” & “fun times for any/everybody” event. What is it? allowing people to smash a car!
It’s all sorted. They get a totalled car, bring it to their warehouse, bust out the sledghammers, you wear your protective gear, & voila! Live out your fantasies!
I love the largeness of it. I love the coolness/ “badass” factor. (‘cuse the french- but how else could you really describe this?). I love that it is completely opposite in the work I’ve done thus far in that it is Completely masculine (run by 3 girls!).
I think it’s going to be an instant success. The good news is, they’ve asked me to be a part of it, so yay. We’ll just see exactly how that actually plays out.
One of the girls and myself have been brainstorming the ins and outs of it all – why we are so passionate about such things! As I coined the phrase from the Monkey “PERMISSION to PLAY!”, the verbs have since expanded specifically with the car smash…”PERMISSION to GET RECKLESS”, etc.
It recalls my experience in collage when I was pushing my friend Paul in his office chair all around the hallway. When we came to the stairwell, he simply got out & threw it down! This blew my mind!
This is what my new friend & I are talking about: those moments where you allow yourself to be reckless. I mean – tho these concepts toy with some borderline violent behavior, what harm is really done but a liberated spirit & a giant grin on your face?!
hmm…ponder this, & go throw a pie! DO IT! 🙂
