queen of hearts

So, the other weekend when I was at Penn, Friday night was casino night. Being the sheltered Mormon girl that I am, I have no idea how to play poker or roulette or black jack, so I drank my bottled water and watched. It was super fun because I made friends with this one girl who didn't know how to play either, so we just sat there at the texas hold'em table trying to figure out what the heck a flush is. I'd heard Penn has a ballroom team, so I asked the grad student who was acting as dealer for the table if you were allowed to take other classes besides chemistry while a grad student.He asked me what kind of class I was thinking of and I responded,

"ballroom dance!!"

chuckles abounded around the table.

Oh poker playing prospective grad students, you have no idea how serious I was about that question.
