It all started innocently enough. Lots of people just standing around, sitting on the grass, lounging with books and groups of friends.
Then suddenly: An Air Horn!
And the battle ensued!
Pillows were sprung from bookbags, purses, picnic baskets, shopping bags... It was mayhem! It was stranger pummeling stranger - in a lighthearted way, of course - and it was amazing! White pillows glistened in the sun. Feathers and stuffing rained down like manna!
I think I saw that 70 cities participated in National Pillow Fight Day last Saturday. I stayed a safe distance from the mob, as I really only wanted photos (Well, if I'm being perfectly honest, I didn't want strangers touching my bed pillows. You know how that goes.)
