EXAMPLES OF TYPE TWO FUN

Type two fun is fun that is not actually fun but that you convince yourself, afterward, was fun
  1. Camping
    To clarify: If you told me right now 'hey M, let's go camping', I'd be like 'omg i love camping' and we'd drive for 6 hours in traffic, get blisters hiking, and start playing celebrity to ward off the impending sense that neither of us is as interesting as we thought we were before falling asleep, cold, on the hard ground. None of which would be fun. But a week from Friday we would both have forgotten all that and be like 'remember that time we went camping? That was so fun!' That's type 2 fun.
  2. Restaurant reservations with more than 8 people
  3. Bachelorette parties
  4. Gingerbread house making competitions
  5. Beer pong
  6. That spontaneous weekend trip to a foreign country with someone you just met
  7. Business school
  8. Any sporting event that takes more than 30 minutes to park
  9. New Year's Eve
  10. Vegas! Now!

  12. Scuba diving in a reservoir in the middle of a landlocked state.
    My dad and I used to go every summer. It consists of hauling a bunch of heavy gear half a mile to the beach, squeezing into impossibly tight neoprene suits, getting sunburned, and hauling the gear half a mile back to the car.

  20. Running
    😁 I love running except when I'm doing it. Before: "Excited!" After: "OMG I'm a BEAST!" During: "Why... Am I... Such... A masochist..."

  21. Bowling
    It's loud, and dark; impossible to carry on a conversation, and if you have more than four people you have to squeeze on the same table or split up. Also, you get competitive and mad if you don't "bowl well" without having any benchmark of what "bowling well" actually means.
