Yay, another tradition! I bet you didn't see this one coming. Well, every year we have an early morning Halloween run. This event involves Judson girls, usually freshman, waking up at about 6:00 in the morning to wait for the MMI cadets. Yeah you heard me right. We Judson girls get up early to watch over 100 boys run down our street. Oh the sights you see!
It really is interesting. The guys dress up in Halloween costumes of all kinds. I can remember looking at a lot of them, last year, and thinking..."Whoa!" (not in a good way) Anyway, so we stand outside along the street patiently waiting with WATER BALLOONS! That is what makes it fun. A lot of girls stay up late the night before, just to get all of their balloons filled. They put a lot of time and effort into this tradition. Then, we bust them on all of the guys!
So, this morning was the day for the Halloween run. About 50 Judson girls arose for this occasion at 5:45 this morning. At first, my roommate and I weren't going to go, but we decided we better since it would be our last time. We woke up, put on shoes, popped a piece of gum in our mouths (lol!), I got my camera, and we headed across campus. Notice that I said ACROSS CAMPUS. I took my camera, because I wanted to share some pictures with you on this blog.
We get there and wait....6:00 comes around, still no guys. 6:05 comes around, still no guys. We all start wondering where they are. Then, 6:15 rolls around and we start to hear them approaching our campus with their marching and singing/chanting. We watch them circle our campus and wait on them to come down the road in front of us. They don't come! The security guard comes around to tell us that..............THEY ARE GOING BACK TO THEIR CAMPUS!
"What! Are you serious?!" (everyone said this) We couldn't believe that we woke up to be stood up! Oh well. The moral of this story is that you can't always trust a pack of guys. J I hope you enjoy the 1 picture that I took. Sorry!
