Describe the best party you’ve ever been to.

A paint party where everyone was given a plastic suit and a bucket of paint to throw. That’s how I met my partner Tom. He was coloured pink and I was coloured blue. We’ve been together over 5 years and I still have some clothes splattered with paint from the party.
