I was just finishing my freshman year and wondering where my place in the sorority was. I had never contemplated quitting, but at sorority functions I felt as I so often do--like a silent observer of the life going on around me.
Come May I attended our "Senior Sendoff" because it was mandatory. I was waiting quietly, expecting to be shut out of the regifting, when Pam called out my name. She declared me to be her "rush crush" and gave me her "Show us your Speedos" philanthropy shirt--one of the shirts which narrowly escaped being pinked recently. Thankfully.
Because there are just some things you can't replace.
