Our debate team is unusually photogenic:
Our team didn't end up doing as well as we would have liked at this debate tournament, but Webster University was very pretty (and the cold was a welcoming change. When we landed back in Houston, I literally changed from my wool overcoat into shorts).
Here are a few shots taken during the breaks in our hectic schedule: us exploring the campus, joking around in the prep room, and eating some of the famous frozen custard.
That's me in the pillow fight picture above---one of my debaters caught me in the freeze-frame, about to incite a pillow war. The feathery rampage that ensued from my first strike definitely became a team bonding moment and a great way to let out our rage after a long weekend.
Oh yes: our flight back to Houston was delayed for FOUR HOURS so my teammate Jarvis dressed up in his suit and I took his runway pictures in the airport waiting area. We must have been a bizarre sight: Jarvis sashaying down the walkway, whipping off his jacket, as I yelled "Work it!" and took pictures like a paparazzo.
I love my team: I can't quit them, and I don't think I want to.
