At the beginning of every semester, UL Chi Alpha kicks off with a huge event called the Burger Bash. Hundreds of students flood the Chi Alpha building to eat free burgers, play games, and get to know one another. For a student leader or intern with Chi Alpha, the event was the premier time to meet people and invite them to your life group bible study.
I spent most of the time small talking and trying to make a few connections. I tried, I mean I really tried, to do things by the book. But then a sudden urge came over me. I couldn’t just talk to people – I had to make a joke.
I looked at my plate. On it sat a burger and a few potato chips.
I put down the plate, picked up a chip, and placed it on my shoulder.
I then went around the building waiting for people to ask me why I had a chip on my shoulder.
If you ask Molly about this, she swears it is the first memory she has of me.
Miracles really do happen.
