And A Roll Tide to That!
______One day, I will grow sick of brightly colored socks that scream in your face louder than sleep-deprived children do in the middle of a morning church service. One day, I may not be attracted to the most obnoxious lip stain in Sephora. One day, I may have a grey hair. Alas, today is not that day, and I shall continue donning the brightest of reds and most pleasant of prints.
______But let's not lie here--vibrance is a dandy quality that all can enjoy. Be colorful and be bright, my pleasant little friends. You were made to stick out, just like a pair o' nipples through a sheer silk blouse on a blustery winter day.
______(Why were you wearing a sheer silk blouse on a blustery winter day?)
______Not my problem. You should have checked the weather.
______One of my favorite things to do on the University of Alabama's campus is shout, "Roll Tide!" from the balconies of the art buildings when a University tour group waddles through the art quad. I've always received a bustling, "Roll Tide!" in response, which is comforting as much as it is hilarious.
______It's funny because even as a Junior, I still haven't attended one of the games yet (hey folks, I made a good amount of moolah off last week's ticket, can you blame me? That's a butt-ton of gumballs). It's also funny because I am an art major, the lowest denomination of student at the grand University of Alabama. Don't get me wrong, I do love the benefits it gives our school, but I've never been an avid football fan myself; however, I will be spirited and shout at the wee folk when the opportunity is presented. Doing so makes me feel like a snotty old king who is perched atop the art buildings, shouting gleeful things toward the peasants below... ah... ahaha... peasants...
______The phrase "Roll Tide" has become a verb, a mood, an adjective, a synonym for many phrases. It can mean, "Damn straight!" just as much as it means, "I fervently agree" and, "I have no idea why you would do that, but okay, we'll go with it." It's all about the tone of your voice.
______Have a very Roll Tide weekend, you guys. Be sure to Roll Tide.
