12 Things My Dad Said When I Took Him To A Frat Party
Macie McCallum

This past weekend was family weekend at IU and a large group of my friends all invited our dads down to visit us. My dad stayed with my roommate's dad in an Airbnb and let's just say they enjoyed reliving their college days, to say the least. Friday night we all took our dads to a frat party — bold move I know. Here are just a few of the things that happened when he experienced a taste of what I do every weekend...

"Isn't there cold beer anywhere around here?"

You mean you're not used to drinking warm Natty Lights, dad?

"Let's play flippy cup!"

One thing I will give him is that my dad knows how to get a party started.

"Hi, I'm Macie's dad. Macie is my little pumpkin."

Nothing a dad loves more than bragging about his little girl... even to frat boys.

"What dirt can you give me on my daughter's boyfriend?"

This one was said more than I would have liked. Don't worry though, he didn't find any dirt.

"This guy is awesome! Whatever girl gets to marry him is a lucky lady!"

— My dad after every meeting every one of my friends. Trying to marry me off? I can't keep up.

"Play some Zac Brown Band!"

Dad was not a fan of Mo Bamba.

"I should have joined a fraternity in college..."

My dad was not one for Greek life in his day, but after experiencing it firsthand he was starting to think he might have made a mistake.

"Can we go home yet?"

Don't let him fool you, he was loving it. The social butterfly that he is, stayed out until 2 a.m. and even went home and stayed up until 3 a.m. with his roommate.

"I am HURTING this morning"

Least to say, Saturday morning he was not feeling as great as the night before.

"Should I call the 'Yuber'?"

My dad thinks it's funny to mispronounce words. He also just learned how to use Uber this weekend.

"Do we have to go out tonight?"

And after a long day of tailgating the next day, we hit the hay at 10:30 Saturday night. One night was enough for him, and for me too in my old age.

"I had the best time ever this weekend."

Frat party at Indiana University.

A weekend of reliving the glory days is never a weekend wasted. We had the best time everywhere we went. Dad's weekend is always one of my personal favorites. Time to start rallying for next year, dad!

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
