post the twenty-ninth

I generally don't take requests for blog posts, but since I promised to write this one, I'm going for it.

As a preface for this question, I'm going to insist that you read Board Question #21534. None of this will make much sense if you don't. If you aren't yet a reader of the 100 Hour Board, this would be an excellent time to start.

So Petra and I were setting up for the first picture of the night. As you can see, we had to wear bags over our heads to preserve our identities. However, there weren't any holes in the bags, so seeing was somewhat difficult. We were standing in front of the silver tree holder in the background, facing one another and searching for one another's hands so we could hold them for the shot. Picture me now with my hands outstretched, searching for Petra's hands. I kept feeling around until I found...well...not her hands.

Yes, that's right, I ended up getting a handful of Petra's chest. What a way to start off the evening. It was probably the most hilarious way we could have started the best question we've ever been asked.

Alright everyone, resume your normal lives.

Ha ha ha ha....

Very, very good.

What time in the evening was this? You should have polled the people around to see how weird they thought you guys appeared... And you know, you could have put holes in the bags to see. Seriously.

Most blind dates don't end up in second base...outside of Mormondom at least.

This is great. Now between this and your post the thirtieth, well, it seems to me that maybe you haven't completely ruled out the idea of making little Petristics and Optimetras! (j/k)
