What a Camel Wants: Dream Dates
Waves crashing upon the rocks, wind surging through your hair, the sunset behind the horizon, birds chirping, music playing in the background. This is almost everyone’s idea of the perfect dream date. Reality is: we live in Gillette Wyoming. Here’s what students at CCHS have to say about their dreamy night out.
“I’d want to go to Humphrey’s,” freshman Logan Dymond said. “We’d eat food and talk then hang out after.”
“I’d want to go to the movie theaters with my best friend Rachel because she’s always complaining about how no one takes her,” senior McKenzee Nuzum said. “I’d take her to a movie she’d want to see, get popcorn, eat the popcorn, drink the drink, and watch the movie.”
“I guess I’d want to go bowling,” junior Kelsey Brunelli said. “We’d eat chili cheese fries, bowl, and talk.”
“My dream date would be going to a picnic with Xander Beeson,” said Shaya Beck. “I’d pack a picnic, and watch the little kids play at the park.”
“My dream date in Gillette, Wyoming would be to go to the movies and maybe go out for dinner afterward,” sophomore Sierra Aars said. “Obviously, at the movies, you can’t talk, but at dinner, we would talk about our family, future, where we want to live, and how many kids we want.”
For some, the great outdoors is the perfect setting.
“I’d go to the park with my best friend Imenna, get some pizza, and listen to music,” senior Jazmine Eisenbraun said.
“My boyfriend and I would drive to the middle of nowhere in a truck,” junior Brianne Bolm said. “We’d bring a blanket, start a fire, then lay back and stare at the stars.”
“I’d like to go with Kimmie Quintana out by WyoDak to stargaze in the back of my pickup,” sophomore Logan reed said. “We’d probably go to dinner around 8ish, then stargaze at like 11, then, of course, I’d give her a ride home and walk her to the front door.”
“I want my dream date out in the country;” sophomore Azia Fichter said. “We’d have a picnic and just enjoy nature.”
Not everyone goes for the norm though…
“Ooh for my dream date I’ve always wanted it to be at a museum,” senior Ivan Sapien said. “Have like a photo day, dress up in the old clothes, and have fun with it.”
Will your parents let you leave the nest? Just wait until you see what these students say about their parents’ strictness level and expectations.
“My parents are VERY strict when it comes to dating,” Beck said. “They told me I can start dating when my height hits 5 foot!”
“They can be strict to an extent,” Reed said. “I can’t be in my room alone with the door shut, and a girl can’t come over when they’re not home.”
“My parents are strict when it comes to knowing where I am,” Sapien said. “They gotta know when I’m gonna go out and with who.”
So, if you like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, if you’re not into yoga, or if you have half a brain; then go out and try one of these traditional Wyoming nights out for a dream date come true.
