Science Experiments (aka Sidewalk Diversions)

My bestie N and I often joke about amusing things to do on the sidewalk.  We refer to these as Science Experiments, actually it’s more like breaking social code.  First we come up with a question, a hypothesis of onlooker reaction or a prediction of the outcome, then we act on the experiment, followed in many cases by a full-bodied laugh and conclusion.  People watching is immensely entertaining.  Here are a few ideas in digging deeper into the human condition…very Jung. 

  • Skipping – Freedom!  This is especially fun when it’s a sunny day.  Just link hands with your bestest friend and skip for a block.  Yes, you may pant breathlessly but this just means you may need to hit the treadmill.  I have done this a few times with my friend C after a vintage shame spiral.  So liberating.
  • Count Boys in Skinny Pants – Ridiculously OOC in a hipster area (Queen West West).  Oh Seth Cohen, what have you done?
  • Break out into dance – What else do you do when Beyonce sings, ‘Single Ladies?’
  • Join Me in Song – Start quietly and progressively go crescendo.  This gem is particularly effective in co-creating a duet if you can carry a tune.  This one time, I started to sing “All These Things I’ve Done” by the Killers, and a random hipster joined me for 4 verses.  True story.

If anything each will put a smile on yours or a stranger’s face.
