Styro -Solo in this case…..
It’s April Fools’ Day, and I was out until 2:00 a.m. last night helping Cole and his 12th grade classmates prank the Chicago Waldorf School. It was so much fun—SO MUCH FUN.
The Seniors wanted to execute a prank, but it is hard for them to pull together the idea and details. I wanted to execute a prank and had the time, transportation, and debt card. We were a good team.
Independently we researched ideas. The teens decided on a few. . .
I made two runs to Cosco to buy the supplies: 12,000 8 inch Styrofoam cups. (A few boxes will be returned, but it is better to have too many than too few, just sayin)
The word was put out that we would meet at the school at 10:00 p.m. The e-mail read, “Wear black.”
Cole and I headed out around 9:00 p.m. We picked up donuts and several teens on the way.
Entrance into the school was procured. (I would tell you how, but then I would have to kill you.)
Inside doors were unlocked using cat burglar moves. (Should college and future careers not work out, a few of our teens would make excellent cat burglars.)
At this point, I allowed the Seniors to take over and just blended in as a worker bee. I was impressed at how quickly they put together a plan and started work. (They have leadership ability. And they are NOT BOSSY.)
Maybe I should show you a picture or two. These pictures aren’t the greatest as my camera needs to be checked out, but I am sure more better pictures will be forthcoming.
All that Eurythmy paid off —12th graders are so agile.
Over 3000 cups were filled with a little water and placed on the floor
Mailboxes were stuffed. Is that a Eurythmy gown hanging from the ceiling. However did it get there?
Rearranging a few of the painting room objects.
Cole tearing his hair out because the cups are crooked. FINE. He will FIX IT.
Taking time off the job for a quick pose.
It was time to sell the school and move on….
Solo Cup Seniors proud of their Styro Installation – as we now call it.
I did not go to school this morning to see the prank executed. The kids will post pictures, and Cole promised to send me an update. However, when one teen said, “You know, we should put up a few of those signs warning students and teachers that the floor may be wet,” it amused me. They really are such great kids. I’ve decided to petition to call off graduation and keep them in high school forever.
Will there be more pranks? Maybe.
