My shopping list of the camporee has involved some strange bedfellows like 12 hula hoops, 13 tennis balls, 2 funnels, 3 beach balls and 2 kids sized exercise balls. Some oddities:
- I went to Toys R’ Us to buy kids exercise balls thinking they’d make giant kick balls. I asked a store attending how burst resistant they were to which she replied “profoundly, I know someone who couldn’t even pop one with a mechanical pencil.”
- Me yelling asking a cluster of teens at Oxford Valley mall to make way as I walked through their cohort with 12 hula hoops wearing aviator glasses.
- The Leslie’s Pool desk attendant asking me if diving rings would do instead of a beach ball for my giant volleyball game.
