Apple Chips

Apparently, I never wrote about this even though it happened well before International Festival or Follies this year. D: Oops.

Each year, the Emergency Medicine club hosts a male pageant where 4 1st-year and 4 2nd-year contests compete to win the coveted title of Mr. WVSOM. There’s a group dance, an interview segment, as well as a talent portion. I get roped into everything the EM club does because all the officers are my closest friends, and I also volunteer to help with pretty much everything, so in this case, I was recruited (along with Monika, Elise and Lynnlee) to choreograph their group dance. Let’s be real though–aside from hula/Tahitian/salsa, I really cannot dance, so my role was mostly as the measure of whether or not they’d be able to learn it (aka if I couldn’t learn it, they probably couldn’t either), keeping their attention from wandering and teaching them steps.

We set the music to Kesha’s Timber and Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball just to make it extra-ridiculous.

We held practices with them and with a lot of effort from the four of us, managed to corral them into learning the entire dance, complete with personal touches from each of them. They were a hilarious and rowdy bunch, super fun to work with and all of us miss their crazy antics, so once the video comes out, we’re planning to all watch it together (while pigging out on food). :D

Lynnlee unfortunately got struck down by a stomach bug the day before and couldn’t make it to the actual event. :[

But here she is now! (…this is pretty much why no one else wants to be friends with us. It’s cool though, because we have each other.)

So what does this all have to do with banana chips, you ask? Everything!

A couple weeks ago, I got a card signed from all of them as well as a Macy’s gift certificate that enabled me to purchase a dehydrator (at long last!). <3 It was super sweet of them! So say hello to the newest addition to my kitchen contraption collection (it’s at the bottom)!
