International Pillow Fight Day 2010 was one to remember!
Date: April 3rd 2010
# of Participants: 300+
Location: The National Mall / Dupont Circle
Capitol Improv members gathered near the Washington Monument and waited for the cue to begin. We had two of our agents improvise a yelling match on the mall with one twist. Instead of settling their differences with violence, they settled their differences with pillows!
As almost everyone from our group now knows, I share a birthday with a rather infamous holiday – April Fools day. While I have had many birthday pranks played on me before, this – by far – was the best one ever done.
For those of you who don’t know, Lindsey Boyle (our other admin) kicked me from the group to send out a message without my knowledge to send me birthday greetings all throughout today. As of this posting, I currently have over 156 text messages, and 6 voicemails from the group saying happy birthday.
I woke up today to the sound of my phone’s text message indication going of literally non-stop for 15 minutes. There was no pause between the end of the ringtone and the beginning for the duration of that period. At first I thought it was an SMS forwarding service and wasn’t all to impressed, but after I realized that each text represented a member of Capitol Improv, I was quite flattered and impressed!
