Every year Dalat holds a two-day staff retreat right before 2nd semester. I loathe group retreats of any kind. I am an introvert (but I play an extrovert on TV). I don't like skits, or role-playing, or silly games where you have to carry an egg on a spoon. I am the perennial party-pooper. But the retreat is mandatory and seeing as how I am one of the principals, I need to be there.
Once there I decided that if I was going to be forced to play goofy games in teams with other adults, then by golly my team was going to WIN. I may not be social but I AM competitive. :)
One trivia game, one impromptu skit, and one cake-decorating contest later... and my team emerges victorious!!
