Here are some of the most memorable from my friends and I during our time at OU.
1. Serenaded in the Union
I was serenaded with an acoustic version of "Get Low" on the ukelele in the Union.
2. The Roommate
My friends had a roommate who, on two occasions, stored his urine in the communal fridge in the kitchen. He also briefly dated a man 40 years his senior.
3. The Life Story
I was once trapped in a nearly two-hour conversation with a woman in her mid-to-late 60's who told me her entire life story: she told me about her daughter, her husband's health issues, her disapproving father, the premature death of her rude brother-in-law, as well the entire plot of her favorite book and of a novel she'd written as a creative writing major.
4. Logie's Girl
My friend and I met a girl in Logie's who made herself very comfortable with us and told us she was mad at her boyfriend- Baker Mayfield's brother (a strange claim to fame). She also introduced us to her mother, a former Dallas Cowboy's cheerleader who was kicked of the team because she couldn't dance.
5. The Other Roommate
My friends and I briefly roomed with a girl who began growing onions in her bathroom sink. She also once clogged the toilet because she flushed her math homework down it.
6. Wasp in the Room
My friend was taking an exam and a wasp found its way into the room. They had to postpone the exam because students were afraid of getting stung.
7. Cuffing Season
My best friend's brother and his fiance filmed making out in the middle of a lecture hall during their Government class. They went viral on Twitter under '#cuffingseason.'
8. The Krusty Krab
My friend witnessed a group of students chanting the 'Krusty Krab is Unfair' chant from Spongebob Squarepants outside of Dale Hall- with much vigor and intensity, I might add.
9. Unexpected Interest
If I had wanted, I could have dated a Cameroonian lawyer who asked for my number on the bus.
10. Sleeping Bag
My friend was in his Gen Chem class one morning when a girl came in with her sleeping bag and promptly laid down in the aisle of the lecture hall and went to sleep. Needless to say, she was asked to leave and not return.
