Do you recall the film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off?
It was so great when Ferris went to Cameron’s home and simply said,”I believe now we are going to have a day off.” They stole Cameron’s dad’s car and spent the afternoon driving like maniacs through Chicago and having an unbelievable time.
Have you ever been on a Ferris Bueller date? Rather than planning your date so precisely — instead of saying,”well, we will need to meet for dinner at 8:00 and then have a drink at 9:30 and then later…” — no! Be spontaneous!
Have a Ferris Bueller date. Go out and have a purely spontaneous and enjoyable day. Start off with something like taking a drive to the country. Select a random exit to get off — any depart — and out of that depart locate the Main Street, locate a trendy restaurant to eat, and find some cool shops. Then get back in the car and on the interstate and get it done again! Choose another random exit.
If you are in a town, walk around town, and if your date says’left’ or’right’ go down another block. You’ll find various shops, cafes — whatever it may be.
If you live out in the country, you can do the exact same exact thing. Go for a drive, get off in a random exit and explore a new city.
The main thing is to get a Ferris Bueller date — where you just go and get lost with one another and have a fantastic time. Do this rather than getting everything so rigid and intended, and instead of being so uptight.
Rather than worrying about what to do and when to do it, why not just be spontaneous?
Can you ever go to rest stops and people see? You can imagine where all the folks are going to and coming from. I used to love doing this on a date. We would sit there and make these back-stories for these families and other travelers.
Another interesting thing to do would be to go and watch airplanes take off, and only guess where they’re heading. You will never really know — but who cares? That is what is fun. Or go to the airport and watch everyone stress outside for an hour and a half.
There are a number of fun things to do.
