Fancy a bit more flavour in life? What about opening the door, only to find your shoes not on the rack, but hanging above your head?
After about a month of suspense, tonight (11th Oct 2010) was the much anticipated night of revelation of GH block’s Beauty and the Beast.
In Beauty & the Beast, the craziest things could happen to you. For about a month, GH residents were supposed to send gifts to and prank their assigned targets, as beauties and beasts respectively. Of course, no one knew who his or her beauty or beast was. As such, those who were creative, or rather, “evil” enough could apply their interesting ideas to good practice without constrain.
The tying up of shoes was one such idea, but it was not as spicy as the award winning prank: blocking the whole corridor with bands. The funniest prank, however, was undoubtedly the hanging of the entire shoe rack altogether. Poor shoes! And that of course is one reason why we shouldn’t put shoes outside—easy targets!
The best gift from a beauty went to the guy who sent a girl a bunch of red roses, winning a pair of angel wings. Though does the brave guy not deserve something more than that? That had to have taken a lot of guts!
The most exciting part came after the distribution of awards. Revelation time! The blockers got to know their respective beauties and beasts. There were occasional shouts of ‘annoyance’ or appreciation, (“It was you!”), accompanied by roars of laughter from the others. With all the laughing, teasing and joking around, even the supper seemed nicer.
All too soon, the revelation night came to an end, but the love built among GH blockers will certainly not. Besides, it won’t be surprising if something else happens to their shoes!
Still, a kind advice is that they all keep their shoes inside.
