Adults behaving like children

25 July 2006


I am 30. But I like playing outside. I like playing football in the street and frisbee in the park. I also like playing with my Super Soaker. I think water pistols are fun and more people should play with them. There are some really cool pictures of me and JD, back in The Hague, running around, hiding behind cars, bandanas around our heads, fighting each other with Super Soakers.

Last week, on our way to rugby training, I lowered the car window and soaked unsuspecting pedestrians and cyclists as I drove past. Bit of fun. JD was mortified. I thought is was fun and I was squeaking with glee!

Peopl eget really confused when they see adults having a bit of innocent play-fun.

Some people have taken this even further and have developed Street Wars.

It is an assasination game. At the start of the game you will receive a manila envelope containing the following:

A picture of your intended target(s)
The home address of your intended target(s)
The work address of your intended target(s)
The name of your intended target(s)
Contact information of your intended target(s)

Upon receipt of these items, your (or your team's) mission is to find and kill (by way of water gun, water balloon or super soaker) your target(s).

How much fun is that!!! About 150 at the same time play the game and some peopel really go all-out and stalk their targets, dress up to surprise them as delivery men etc.

Of course some silly old boring people think this is all very wrong, especially in this era of terrorism & fear blah blah blah. I think it is just people having fun with a water gun. Get over it. Some people just enjoy doing this kind of thing because they like the thrill of the hunt but don't really like the death-part of it all.

And some do it simply because they like spraying other people with Super Soakers. I would sign up for it if I had the time.

Now go outside and play. The sun is out. Go on. Play. You know you want to.
