When we were 13 years old, my friend Chris and I used to go to the part of Grace Hospital where they held the Wednesday psych ward meetings. We didn’t go to the meetings though.
Chris had a Six foot blow up green Gumby doll. We would clear tape a large knife to its left hand and just simply walk it past the window where the group met. Then we would leave.
We would do this every week. Our hope was that someone in the group would say “umm, I just saw a large Gumby doll with a knife walk past that window” and the rest of their meeting would unfold from that statement.
It is true that idle hands are the devil’s workshop… especially at age 13.
