Lauren and I show off at a medium workshop!
"A few weeks ago Lauren and I went to a Medium development workshop in New Westminister. It was a good session and we learned a lot. Our shining moment came when we were doing a group activitiy. The group of ten people were asked to form a semi-circle in front of a stage. On the stage one person was asked to sit with their back to the rest of the group. They were then blind folded. Then the instructor picked someone else from the group to stand behind the person on the stage and the blind folded person was supposed to use their "vibes" to guess who was standing behind them. Well no one wanted to first so eventually Lauren volunteered to go first. She was blind folded on the stage and the instructor picked one of the other men to stand behind her. At first Lauren was nervous and wan't getting anything. The instructor told her to relax and to see if she could tell us the gender. So Lauren says, '"I think it is a man" then she says "I think he is tall" then immediately she says "i think it is Shawn." Well everyone's mouth falls open, including the instructors. She says, "Good job, it doesn't usually happen like that. That was quick." Well now no one wants to be next so I volunteer to go up. Once my eyes were blind folded, the instructor picked someone to stand behind me. At first I didn't sense anything but then I felt it was a woman. I said, "I think it is a woman" and then I just knew who it was. I said, "I think she is middle aged" Right again. Then I blurted out, I think it is Louise" The instructor then yelled, " Oh come on you guys, that is not how it is supposed to work!" I was right and did it in three guesses as well. No one else wanted to try after that.
