Upon arriving at class, I started to inwardly cringe when I noticed colour coded goodies on a table and then received a directive from the Group 10 hosts, to sit at the table which matched the colour of my cup cake.
Go Team YELLOW!
As Group 10 provided the guidelines of the team activity, I started opening myself up to be present and to positively contribute to this team requirement.
Team Yellow was not allowed to verbally communicate. This situation (like a silent movie) presented an opportunity for us to be even more creative in how to draw the attention of others, when a fellow member had a light bulb moment on what and how to design the masterpiece for our model. Hands were flying, gestures were made, we mumbled, hummed, sang tunes in our head (oh that was me), and wrote little notes and designs on paper. An overall theme from Team Yellow was to have fun in executing the requirements of this task.
We had a fantastic model, Gavin, who was such a great sport. Gavin allowed us to lift, move, and manoeuvre him in all angles, so that we could create boobs for him, as well as to place his feet, and arms in the custom designed creation which was especially designed for him. Gavin even prompted or gestured to us to add further bling and accessories on his person, in order to complement his phenomenal customised designer outfit by the fabulous TEAM YELLOW!
Our raucous team finally made their voices heard, when our stunning model, had the opportunity to strut his stuff on the catwalk. No more mute button for TEAM YELLOW – we screamed, bellowed, cajoled and just made a lot of noise in support of our model – what fun!
I am not sure if there was more for our team to explore in addition to working creatively in silence, and then making as much noise as possible. If the objective was for fun to be had –then we can certainly tick that box.
Thanks Group 10, sorry for time running out on all of us. I was curious to learn more about your plan.
