I solemnly declare today,
National Free Photo Day.
In honor of our NFPD,
Chloe and I planned on setting up a booth and photographing any pedestrians that came our way.
Chloe was to be in charge of the booth, making it look attractive and unique,
and I was to take the photographs.
Naturally, it was raining all day.
Why did we expect anything less?
So as an alternative,
we hired Adrienne as our Artistic Director and took all her friends out on a fake photoshoot.
I used to see people post photos of "fake engagements" or dressing up in wedding dresses, etc.
even though they weren't getting married,
and I thought it was the stupidest thing ever.
And now I'm one of those obnoxious people.
Sucks to --- I hate that saying.
In my defense,
We wanted to get the full rage of the photoshooting experience.
Chloe and Jared played our engaged couple,
Erica and Lauren were the best friend slash sisters,
and Adrienne and Matt were the awkward siblings.
What did you expect,
these photos were free.
[and so were the models]
What better way to end the day with a free friendship shot.
No, I meant this one:
Yeah, that's better.
What to do, what to do.
How do you beat a free photoshoot?
For those of you that live under a rock,
coning is the new thing to do when you have nothing to do.
For example, "I'm bored. What do you want to do?"
"Let's go coning."
It means you go to McDonalds or some other ice cream serving place,
order an ice cream cone,
and [the key and point of the entire operation]
is to grab the ice cream by the ice cream and not by the cone.
It's essential to act like it's completely normal so that you can properly observe
the ice cream server's facial expression.
Adrienne and Lauren both did it.
At two separate McDonalds, of course.
The first [Adrienne's] was the best.
"Uh, Ooh - You really shouldn'ta done that."
Lauren's just stared at her in disbelief.
Gotta love a good coner.
