Do you recognize one of the girls in these pictures? Look at the one on the far left in the first picture and the one on the far right in the second. That’s me. Age 19 I think. Look at how friggin’ cool I was. I’m with my Finnish roommate, Suvi on the left. She was an exchange student my sophomore year, and totally amazing. I’ve tried to find her online in recent years. No luck. The shot on the right is me with some of my sorority sisters. Sometimes I miss these days.
I remember going out this night. Again, I was really friggin cool, so I used a fake ID to get into a bar with Suvi before taking her to yet another American fraternity party to meet up with my girls. It was right after Thanksgiving break, late in November. I always think of this night on the last day of November.
At the party I sipped on a Zima with the girls. (Ew, I know.) This sweaty, stumbling guy who may have been cute at the beginning of the night came up to me. At this point he was like, eight PBR’s in. (Ew, I know.) Eventually he asked, “Let me get your number. When can I give you a call?” I smiled and said. “November 31 is good.” He slurred, “Alright! November 31, it is. I’ll call you girl!”
Funny thing. I never heard from the guy.
