Before I get to all of that nonsense I'm going to step back and talk about the other noteworthy parts of the event. The theme this year was Clowning Around with Tau Beta Sigma. It was a very cute carnival theme that one of our wonderful members Sara O'Brien came up with. For those of you that don't know, crush is an event where each member of the sorority invites multiple guys (usually 3-5) to come hang out and have fun. We always make a point to invite all the Beta Alpha members, and we like to include some of their rushees too. Many of the people who get invited are not rushing or members, but are just our friends. We just like getting a chance to hang out with people outside of band.
Sisterhood Committee did a great job of setting everything up in a way that made things look very carnival-esque. Every time you deal with an event like this you are straddling the line between cheesy/corny and totally fun. Sara and her committee totally hit "fun" with the whole concept. In order to make the event as carnival like as possible, we had lots of fun childhood candy and silly games for everyone to play.
In case you were wondering about the title of this post. This is the reason why - the Iota chapter smelled of whipped cream for the next day or so no matter how many times we showered. I think the smell was actually stuck in my nose and I was convinced that after two showers and a bath within 24 hours of the event I STILL had whipped cream in my hair!
So that was Crush!! I hope you all enjoyed reading about it because we enjoyed being there!
PS - Later that day after we all got home Brenna cut a piece of pie for herself and a few people in our apartment and served dessert. Before handing out plates she asked (completely serious - as if she had forgotten about the crush event that day), "Does anyone want whipped cream on top?" Every person in the apartment groaned out of disgust. Poor Brenna already had whipped cream on hers. I'm pretty sure she just threw away the slice and didn't even eat dessert.
