TP for T.C. - THE DAY WE PRANKED OUR BOSS
Here's something you should know about me: a large part of my nature involves mischief and hilarity. For example, a good prank, if done well and in taste, can be a great way to catch someone (or a group of people) off guard and remind them that there is more beauty and humor to life than a monotonous daily routine. Planning and playing a prank is also a great way to bring a group of people together under a playful nature that inherently exists within ourselves but that we often choose to forget. We forget to laugh. Some of the best advice I've recieved was right before I left Jordan - a friend of mine made me a goodbye card and wrote, "Never forget to enjoy the humor of life." I've never forgotten. And I always try to remind others.
All of this, of course, goes to defend the mischievous ordeals of my last week. One of our bosses, a recent Amherst grad and now a Green Dean, or Admission Fellow, Tyler Chapman, was away on vacation all last week. Unfortunately for him, he forgot to lock his door, so we interns seized the opportunity to pull off a top-notch prank on our unexpecting dean.
On Thursday night, I drove around to all the open buildings on campus, collecting around 100 rolls of toilet paper in my car (you could see them through the windows -- my car looked ridiculous). On Friday morning, we found 80 more TP rolls inside the office. While I gave a tour, Taylor and Dan built a large pyramid of TP rolls in the middle of Tyler's floor. When I came back, Taylor sat down to play the Pokemon Trading Card Game (nerdpoint) while I went around wrapping everything in Tyler's office. The rest, as they say, is history.
