Pillow fight

Take this!

Through my network of friends, I heard about Montréal's Pillow Fight Club. Now I've heard about them before: Toronto, San Francisco, Seattle. I had missed them all! But everyone really seemed to enjoy them, so I figured that we'd have a pretty good showing as well.

Come Friday, I got Adam to come along with me. We trudged through the dusk until we got to the park, but we were about half and hour early. So we ducked into Dunn's and got ourselves some smoked meat sandwiches. At the appointed hour, we walked into the park and saw all these people milling about pretending that they should be there. Of course, this is silly. Nobody stands around in a public park while it is raining!

Oh, did I mention there was water falling from the sky? That's why these photographs are so damp looking. Other people showed up with fancy cameras and cellphone cameras. But I seemed to be the only photographer who walked into the fray and got beat up. But my camera is slow, so sacrifices had to be made. A journalist was interviewing some people before they ran away and beat up on a mischievous boy.

Poor little camera. But it is stalwart and faithful and gets me in the thick of the action. We were all very wet by the time we got back to the office.

“The first rule of Pillow Fight Club is: you do not talk about Pillow Fight Club. The second rule of Pillow Fight Club is: you DO NOT talk about Pillow Fight Club.…”

The rules for this Fight Club are slightly different.

Argh! I was supposed to go to this, but I figured it wouldn't happen due to the rain! No fair!

Maybe we could have another one when summer has officially hung its hat in Montreal.
