Yesterday was World Wide Flash Mob day.
A geocaching flash mob is where geocachers meet in one spot for 15 short minutes. Show up, do something, leave - in a flash, one might say.
I hosted a flashmob in Morganton NC. It was joke themed. Everyone who showed up cracked jokes for 10 minutes, then we took a group photo.
I held mine a bit early so we could have time to attend one of the other WWFM events in Asheville NC.
That WWFM was a giant water gun fight. We fought for 5 minutes, signed logs and chatted for 5 minutes, did a group photo for 5 minutes, then dispersed (aka went geocaching). The following is a series of pics from the second event, starting with Abigail marching towards battle.
The first shot was made by the host, OzGuff:

Yours Truly getting shot in the back... by my own son, no less.
Its a full on water gun war now.

Zeke and Abigail giving it their all. Despite being outsized and packing kid-sized weaponry, they did really well. Both had a blast.

After the battle was over, we all settled in for a group photo.
This was a great deal of fun. Water gun fights are cool (literally) a blast (metaphorically) and a great way to spend 15 minutes on a Saturday. Thanks to OzGuff for hosting this event, and for everyone who showed up to either of the WWFM events on Saturday. Definitely one for the memory books.
