The Great Wal-Mart Scavenger Hunt

It is not unusual for my friend, Abby, and I, also Abbey, to go to Wal-Mart for no particular reason. We have walked around filming an impromptu video about a woman who believes she is being stalked and resorts to wearing a purple trash can on her head as a disguise. We have walked around in costume and held giant candy cane duels. This weekend we had the pleasure of planning the Great Wal-Mart Scavenger Hunt as a replacement for our ruined bowling plans.
It was rather fun. We were supposed to go bowling after my basketball game then head over to the movie theater with three other friends but upon arriving at the bowling alley we discovered that the lanes were reserved for a competition (we really must consider doing some research before planning.) With a good two hours to fill we sat in the alley parking lot debating on a filler for this time slot.
Now the boy who planned this evening of craziness doesn’t get out much besides school, church, and youth group so when we suggested a scavenger hunt he was well, to say the least, confused out of his mind but it didn’t take much convincing before we were on our way to Wal-Mart and making our list.
On the list:
-pipe cleaners (at least 6 colors)
-an all pink Barbie
-a picture of a man in a tank top and shorts
-kiwi (the fruit of course)
-a Scorpions CD
-a fake moustache
-red hair dye
-blueberry frosted Pop-Tarts
-Dumb and Dumber (the original)
This really is a great game to play and it’s easy too! Just make a list, grab a basket, and split into groups! We started at the right corner nearest to the entrance, set up a half an hour time frame in which we had to find the items and meet at the complete opposite corner of the store.
I am happy to say that my team, Team Green, won! The deciding item? The Scorpions CD! The irony in that? They hit up the CD section first and somehow we ended up with the last copy! The unfound items were a picture of a man in tank top and shorts, Dumb and Dumber, and a fake moustache.
After the Hunt was over we stayed in the store and avoided a worker who had yelled at us during the Hunt for attacking each other with foam swords (Immature? Yes. Fun? Yes.) We hit up the clearance aisle, practiced our juggling and tried on size 4X shorts.
The movie was good too. Not many people have heard of the movie To Save a Life but it really is life changing. Sad, realistic, and hard to forget. I recommend both Wal-Mart Scavenger Hunts and To Save a Life.
