On Tuesday night, Bobby and I had the privilege of attending the annual spring scholarship dinner at our alma mater, Mississippi College. A friend of ours had a table at the event, and invited us to come as guests. We never get to go to anything fancy like this, so it was a real treat. So much so, that I actually curled my hair and put on more than just mascara and concealer!
I may have had to use a half bottle of hair spray, but it stayed put! (My thick thick hair does not like to curl. The curls fall out instantly, especially here in the humid south, but I was determined!)
I admittedly had not been back to campus in about seven years, and as soon as we walked across the quad, all the memories came flooding back and I got super nostalgic. I can’t believe I graduated NINE years ago this spring. I vividly remember wanting so badly to be out of college so I could be a “real adult”, and now I would give my right arm to go back to those glorious days of no worries.
The dinner was very nice, we had salad, steak and potatoes, as well as cheesecake.
We had a very special treat, because not only was the governor, Phil Bryant at the event, but he introduced the keynote speaker, who was none other than Rudy Giuliani.
Rudy was such a great speaker, and the time flew by (he talked for well over an hour) but I could have listened to his stories all night.
He is hilarious, and gave his opinions on the presidential election madness, as well as gave us some words of wisdom on leadership and vision, and what our country needs.
He told stories from September 11th, and about his time as mayor. I truly enjoyed the evening, and am so glad I was able to go and hear someone like Rudy speak (and sit right up in the front, too!)
One funny side note, his phone rang while he was speaking, and his ringtone was the music for the song “Bad to the Bone.” I die. We just couldn’t get over how hilarious that was.
QOTD: Have you ever heard someone of political notoriety speak in person? I would love to hear who! I’m a total history and government nerd!
