Social Hour That Lasts Days
I finally have a puppy but I'm married as are all of my friends. This situation is the opposite of a perfect storm, whatever that is. I'd love to loan out my pup to my friends who are trying to meet people and set them loose in the park. Puppies attract everyone, they're the perfect icebreaker, better than a hurricane (which you know everyone is going to talk about), plus they're approachable and don't cause loss of human life. In one day of having a puppy I met more people in my neighborhood than I have in the last five years. As an intellectual exercise I've tried to brainstorm other ways that it would be possible to meet so many strangers (margarita machine, T-shirt gun, Oscar Mayer Wienermobile) and they all have their own problems.
