Sunday 14th January – Free the Nipple Picnic
Free the Nipple Picnic
Bronwen and I drove to Orleigh Park in West End, via Coles to buy picnic things, to see what the “Third Free the Nipple Picnic” was. As it turned out, it was three guys and two girls—none of who were actually topless. We found Clint—and his friend Jess—nearby, and as we’d planned to have a picnic anyway, invited them to picnic with us. After I’d finished eating many celery sticks and fought off many, many ants, I thought it’d be funny to get a photo of the three of them fully clothed as a sort of joke on the failed Free the Nipple Picnic, but they mistook me and freed their nipples instead, so I ended up with an actual Free the Nipple Picnic photo. This newfound freedom caught the attention of the proper Free the Nipple Picnic people (who still hadn’t freed any of their nipples), who came over and told us that the picnic was over where they were sitting—and then when we said we didn’t actually want to join in and were just having a normal picnic, they asked if they could come join us. We told them we were about to leave and go to New Farm Park for acro, as none of our acro friends had turned up—despite saying they might. This was a bit awkward, because instead of leaving, Bronwen had the clever idea of climbing a nearby tree, so I spent ages dodging spiders (there were an alarming number of really large spiders) and taking photos of Bronwen and Jess freeing their nipples in a tree while the real Free the Nipple Picnic people (who still hadn’t freed their nipples) sat over at their freedom-less picnic watching us.
Acro at New Farm Park
After no one was bitten by any spiders, and no one fell out of the tree, Bronwen and I drove to New Farm Park where a surprising amount of people (sixteen to be precise) turned up to do acro.
