I worked the holiday last weekend.
What holiday? I had the same question.
Apparently the state of Utah shuts down for "Pioneer Day." You can read a "factual" Wiki entry about it here.
Between my two assignments, which were Pioneer Day related, I had about five hours to burn.
I heard about this Foam Day event in Lehi (the one Lance Booth, our former intern, shot last year), so I figured I’d take initiative and venture over to make some more art for the paper.
Well, for about 24-hours I smelled of soap, my eyes were red and burning.
Not to mention, I am surprised my phone still works, my wallet took a day to dry out, I ruined a perfectly good note pad, my shoes, socks and clothes were drenched (and soapy), and on top of that, had no idea what I was shooting (or seeing out of my own eyes for that matter).
But I had a blast.
