Nor could the frightful conditions outside detract from the merriment inside during the second annual winter in(formal) pre-formal party, a tradition a few of my friends and I started last year. Never one to hold back on an opportunity to laugh when it presents itself, I invited my esteemed guests to pair their formal attire with at least one wacky prop. “Friends of the stodgy persuasion need not apply,” I wrote.
Needless to say, they did not disappoint. With wigs, masks and even a Yale banner, they made for a photogenic crowd indeed. And, for the first time since fall semester started in August, the reality of our impending graduation hit me: I thought to myself, “Wow, I’m really going to miss these guys next year."
