Last Sunday was International Pillow Fight Day. I totally missed my pillow-smacking chances by a couple of hours, but then it made me wonder, would I really have wanted to hit someone with a pillow?
1) You want blood.
2) For purposes of flirting.
You're 12, and on school camp. The teachers split you into boys' room and girls' rooms. Sneaking out into the hallway to intrude on the boys/girls' quarters is pretty much the most exciting and rebellious thing you can think of.
It not only provides a great avenue for physical contact; it is also it is an ice-breaker for that first mixed-gender conversation. Ah true love.
