Amateur Gourmet Scavenger Hunt 2010: Talking To Strangers 1
I have always relied on the kindness of strangers. Okay, that’s not quite true. In fact, it’s not true at all. I am terrified of talking to strangers. This Scavenger Hunt forced me to confront this fear head-on. I approached quite a few people with, “Hi, um, could I ask you a favor? See, well…. I’m doing this photo scavenger hunt? And, uh…” And really, only one person flat-out said no. Others ranged from enthusiastic to hesitant to slightly frightened. Luckily, I was able to soothe my social anxiety with hot dogs, hamburgers, chocolate, and dinner at Otto’s

I think my tally was 203, without counting points for the NY Times Building or the Shake Shack pictures.
