GISHWHES: You Did What? And You Did It For What?

Have you ever done something so absolutely crazy, everyone asks why you did it, or for whom you did it for?  Well, I did!  

This year, I participated with GISHWHES (Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Scene).  It is a long list of crazy things that kind of make you go, "What the heck!"  And we did this all to bring attention to making random acts of kindness to make the world a better place (as well as just to have the right to be crazy). 

So who was my team?

Do a crazy, emotionally unstable Brady Bunch-esque Pic
Our team, KinkybootsLovesDutchCourage, was split into 2 sides of the world.  Half were in South Carolina, while the other half were in the Netherlands.  Does make interesting for team work. 

So what did I do?

I went hunting for a moose head (harder than you would think in SC, since most have never even SEEN one!), searching for a sock monkey hat, trying to find a veteran, knitted/crochetted a cat vest and booties, pretended to be a bride, chauffeured around friends to get costume parts, was a cameraman, and probably a lot of other stuff.

Don't I make a pretty bride

But we did other crazy things!!!!!!!

In SC, one teammate had to sit in a clean room with 5+ snakes while looking happy as she rubbed oil into her arms.

In the Netherlands, another teammate mimed "You're the Bee's Knees".

In SC, we did include teammate's children in the ruckus!

In the Netherlands, they had a kitchen battle

In SC, we got a Burger King employee to eat a Happy Meal!

In the Netherlands, they made a creepy doll, called Onion Man,

And then roasted Ken & Barbie with veggies! 

In SC, we made a battle ready vehicle fleeing the mayhem we had created!

We got a fireman to do this in SC:

And not only did we do crazy things, we did some nice things too!


So next year when the time comes around, we should all do some random acts of kindness... And then join in on the mayhem and splendor known as GISHWHES!

Happy Reading!
