During my 2 years at university, I never set foot in a sorority house. The closest I've gotten is watching "Legally Blonde", and so to be honest, that's what I expected.
And boy, did these chicks deliver.
Being accosted by 40 screaming, cheering, clapping girls upon entering a house, being around so much flatironed bleached hair, and watching the looks on these girls' faces when they learned that I am not actually of college age and planning to rush, that I am OLD and MARRIED and a GROWN-UP (don't even pretend that I look anywhere 18 - please), listening to a girl brag to me that her house had the biggest parking lot of all the houses on the Row, and then being escorted out the front door 10 minutes later to an equally screamy, cheery, clappy Goodbye song, was like nothing I have ever experienced before in my entire life.
Nothing But The Truth, So Help Me God Snippets From That Afternoon
- "Wow, you work for Naaahsaaaa?!?! That is soooo AHHHSAAAAHM!"
- "We're, like, the only house that can paint our rooms however we want. But they're all, like, pink! Because that's, like, everyone's favorite color!"
- "The girl that made up the dances for our skit is, like, a really good dancer. She met some of the, like, people who dance on So You Think You Can Dance." [pauses for dramatic effect]
But I'm really glad that I went - it makes for a good laugh, and gives me some insight on what I missed out on...and really didn't at all.
