Tonight was the annual BLSA 3L banquet. It's the last official BLSA event of the year, when the organization says good by to it's graduating 3Ls. It was my third one. I had been waiting for this particular banquet for quite a long time, especially for the slide show and the superlatives. "Finally, I'll get to be in the pictures on that big screen! Me and my friends, being silly and studious and pretty..." There was no slide show. :( Darn 2Ls (they plan the thing) dropped the ball.
There were however superlative awards. The superlatives are these silly awards for things like 'Next Johnnie Cochran,' 'Best Dressed,' or 'Most Likely to Commit Malpractice.' (Mr. Trizzle won two of those last year; I'll let you guess what two.) All the 3Ls vote on their classmates.
I was excited about seeing which of my friends would get what awards, but was pretty certain I wouldn't get any myself. Some of the awards might have kinda fit me, but not better than they fit my classmates. So, I was prepared to sit back and watch My Rhyming Twin get the award for 'Most Likely to Brighten Someone's Day,' and my newly married friends get 'Most Likely to Have Children First', etc. Well, I was wrong.
I did get an award. And not just any award. One of the most ridiculous awards (probably just behind 'Most Likely to Buy a Luxury Vehicle w/ 1st PayCheck' and the malpractice award - both of which went to the same person this year). For some confounded reason, my classmates voted me "interesting enough to watch during prime time." Yes, I got the 'Most Likely to be a Reality TV Star' award. What?!
All I have to say to my classmates is, 'y'all better mean Top Model, cuz if you think I'm going on one of those Real-College-Trip-Bug Eating-Mud Wrestling-Find a Spouse shows, you've got another thing coming! Geesh, I don't even have TV to watch reality TV, and if I did, I sure as heck wouldn't watch that stuff! Excuse me, but can I please get the 'Most Likely to be Laura Petrie' award instead? ... oh never mind, she wears flat shoes anyway.
