The camping trip, part seven

Finally we've arrived at Sunday morning. Sleepyhead me got up, got dressed, and washed up as soon as the bathroom was available, and then I organized and packed my stuff. All my wet stuff went in a separate bag. My remaining non-wet items went in my backpack. Then it was time to figure out the sleeping bag, which came out of a teeny tiny bag. David took care of this the previous times, so the most efficient way to do this was still a mystery to me. I tried rolling it and folding it until David told me the best way was to stuff it in there; he had tried every way and found that stuffing it in there was the best way. I was skeptical at first. Surely there had to be a better way. Maybe there was a way to prove the best way to insert the sleeping bag into the bag. But I tried stuffing it, and sure enough, it started to make its way into the bag.

Well, the first part made its way in there. While I stuffed the sleeping bag in the bag, others made their way in the common area. Eventually a significant chunk of the sleeping bag was sticking out, and it was time for me to stand up and apply more force. I carried the bag over to the table where David and Michael were sitting. Erin offered us Pop-tarts. All of us took some, though I saved mine for after the sleeping bag incident. David kept telling me he could finish it for me, but I insisted on doing it myself. I started it, and I was going to finish it. I did finally let him finish it because there was just a little bit sticking out and he could apply more force than I could. I took a sip of his coffee (not bad for coffee) and made some tea to go with my Pop-tarts. Jordan sat down with us and we ate and talked. Things that came up include stopping a beat, saying "awkward", and continuing. Jordan said he was goin to make a song with that in it. David decided he was going to start a beat during future awkward moments. Nice awkwardness diffuser. There was also a long discussion on zombies and for some reason, guns that shot black holes.
