Standing Around

Prepared, but bored Say Cheese
Lots of dancing around the Midsummer pole at the weekend festivities in Jordbro, but I did also notice a bit of standing around, being photographed, or trying to look as bored as possible, and the winners in that category can be seen on the first photo. I think it means that the scout movement have a new motto. Prepared, but bored.

Be prepared, but be bored and keep your cell phone close at all times!

Were there other things for people to do than dance around the midsummer pole?

Of course, they took pictures. Probably lots of pictures were taken. With cell phones! :-)

I like both images Steffe, the young girls look very 'midsummery' and pretty, and yes the top group look as if they're trying too hard to look super cool haha!

Two very nice pictures; I like the second picture, but the first one is sort of comical. Life can seem so slow and boring when you are young.

Ah, Scouting For Bores. I feel sorry for the one with the hands in pockets - clearly lost their phone.

I expect they were practising their knots with their knotting apps.

More like, Be prepared, but always have your phone in your hand. Is it just me, or does it seem like an addiction among 20-somethings?
