Peirce Date

*clink*

Hello lovers. Welcome back to Peirce Dates, an old segment that we recently brought back for this day of blind Cupid’s arrow, my favorite holiday and your’s: Valentine’s Day.

Very loosely based on a true story 

It’s a fine fall/summer/swelteringly hot day of 90 degrees at Kenyon.

You stroll into the bookstore, down the stairs, and you wait on line behind all the sweaty students until finally it’s your turn. You say your name casually looking down at your phone, but wait there’s more. As the nice woman begins to inform you that they don’t have your package your heart begins to sink. Not have my package??

This Valentine’s Day, we at the Thrill wanted to celebrate with a reiteration of one of our favorite features, Peirce Date. But this time, we’re taking it really fucking seriously. Two unwitting participants went on the most elaborate Peirce Date to date and only looked like they wanted to get raptured for 65% of it. That’s what I call good enough.
