Don't quote me on this, but I think we were supposed to "Do an ordinary action three times in a row, in an unconventional way". (I really wish I knew why I did this, but there was no such thing as a syllabus in this class, and darned if I remember.) Regardless, I chose to go through the drive-thru at Jack In The Box three consecutive times, each time ordering a bit of my meal. Cleverly, I decided to do this at a location far away from my house so that they wouldn't remember me upon a later visit, so of course only about a month later I wound up moving right into their area unintentionally. Just my luck, right? Anyway, I think the best part of this is at the very end, when the guy finally asks me what the hell I'm doing, and how easily he accepts my lame, flakey answer!
