Game Night w/ Miracle Berries: March 2009
In March 2009, Mello hosted a Games Night at her lush sublet in The Beaches neighborhood here in Toronto. The guest list included a group of women in their mid-20's to mid-30's. The group was a unique mix of overworked and underpaid articling future lawyers, a recent university graduate with a degree in marketing who now works in an office overrun by cats, a Costco optometry specialist, an under-appreciated teacher, someone who says she's a consultant but spends most of her time shopping online and winning at the casinos (hmmm...) and even a library technician who dances and sings for toddlers.
What unified all of these women was their love of board games coupled with their curiosity to test out "Miracle Berry" tablets. Now for those of you who haven't a clue about what a miracle berry is, I suggest you go here for a quick overview: Miracle Fruit
At our Games Night, only a couple of brave souls (Lindsay & Sarah) had the guts to try out these Miracle Berry tablets. As evidenced in the photos, the miracle berries did indeed work. Sarah was caught sneaking into the kitchen to snarf down an entire lemon like it was candy! Lindsay happily posed for a photo opportunity while sucking on some sweet, sweet lemon juice. Afterwards she drank a couple (okay, a few) beers that she proclaimed tasted like "sugar water" at least 5 times throughout the course of the evening.
Mello and Lindsay recently had the blessing to stumble upon a fantastic miracle fruit company by way of Twitter when Lindsay tweeted: "When life gives you lemons, remember there are miracle berries that can make them taste like sugar." This company noticed her tweet and got in touch. They're interested in our parties. Good thing, because we have a lot of them.
