TWIRP UPDATE: The Frustration Ain’t So Tough.
Howdy, blog world.
I come to you with good news. In the previous post, I expressed my frustration about TWIRP week….
Not much has changed since then.
Haha, just kidding. I mean, I still agree that the process is frustrating. The whole girl asking a guy out ordeal is ridiculous….but you won’t believe how many people have participated in it thus far! The girls are coming out from the dust, and guys have been asked out left and right. The TWIRP fest is taking over…I don’t know what’s happening to society, but I’m telling you: GIRLS RULE!!!
I’ve seen So many creative Ideas. Girls have serenaded guys, they’ve photo bombed them, sent them on scavenger hunts, and have even had the marbles to ask them out face-to-face!
But this makes me wonder….If girls have the power to ask guys out creatively, then WHY CAN’T GUYS DO THE SAME THING.
Heck, I hardly feel bad for some of the males who weren’t twirped. I mean, hello, welcome to the struggle bus! Girls spend hours, days, months, and years waiting to be asked out by a guy. Do you even realize how good us girls would feel if we were simply asked out on a friend date? Do you know how different the MNU community would be? Just imagine…it would be that much better.
Fellas, ya need to step up your game! Cuz us women are making ya’ll look like wimps!….Seriously.
So, if you must know…Yes, I twirped someone. Mind you, I was trying to explain this story to my older sister, and she kept thinking I said, “tripped”….which makes the story funnier than it actually is.
The TWIRP plan: I woke up at the early hours of 8:42 am, and began writing out letters for the scavenger hunt I would send this guy on. In the letter, I tell him that he’s been chosen to go on a mission, and with each envelope he finds, he will be given a number. I tell him to remember these numbers because they will come in handy at the end. Then, I seal the envelopes with clues, and I begin to scatter them out around campus. Once he collects all the numbers, he’s supposed to enter the digits into his phone, and my name will appear.
I thought it was an awesome plan…but it was bound for a few mishaps.
I place the first envelope in the admission’s office. The second envelope was inside of his mailbox; the third envelope was tapped under a pool table in the boy’s lobby, and the last envelope was at the front desk in Mabee library, along with a package of beef jerky (to remind him not to be jerky about his decision).
The waiting game was insane! I’ve never been so nervous in my life, and I didn’t think he’d figure out any of the clues…But HE DID…and somehow, he managed to do the scavenger hunt completely backwards! (I honestly don’t know how he did that) Either way, what matters is that he figured it out!
Kuddos to ya!
By the way, here’s the picture of that crazy guy!
I’d like to conclude this update on a positive note. Girls, if you’re too chicken to ask one of your guy friends out, JUST DO IT! You won’t regret it (well, you probably would if he said no….but he won’t say no…at least I hope not). If he’s really your friend, then he’ll make it fun for you. And remember, it doesn’t have to be ROMANTIC! Just have fun.
And to the boys…well, you already know how I feel.
Haha, that’s all folks!
Over and out!
