LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
When we got to Louisville at 11:30, I knew it was going to be a serious party when I was greeted with a nametag and a bottle of beer. Soon, we were riding through downtown on a trolley-type contraption that all of us had to pedal to keep it moving forward. Every 20 minutes or so, we would stop at a pub, run in to get a drink and then resume our ride.
Needless to say the day and night, which didn’t end for me until 2:30 a.m., was filled with lots of hijinks, dancing and laughing, and by the end of it, I felt like I was a huge step closer to knowing what it would have been like to go to American college and pledge for a sorority. It’s definitely a night I’ll never forget.
So, as this month comes to a close, I’m reminded of how lucky I’ve been in this unlucky year of 2013. And as October approaches, I’m already looking forward to new discoveries and more celebrations.
