Video Script

Hi, I’m Randall, and I’m out looking for a picnic spot, and when I think of a picnic, I think of several things.

Number one: Who do I invite? Perhaps I invite people who don’t have friends and, uh, might need some company.

Number two: I often think about what kinds of food do I bring, especially for those who have dietary needs.

And finally, location, location, location. I try to choose a good spot that is close to perhaps a lake or things to do for children. Picnics are fun.
