This year marks the 10th anniversary since my graduation from the University of Alabama.
Honestly, this was at the back of my mind for a while until I got a phone call from my mom yesterday evening. She was having a conversation with a customer who stopped by her batik factory, and when the customer told her that he was from Alabama, she mentioned about me. Before the customer left, he laughingly gave my mom a message to pass over to me, and added that I would understand this if I did go to Bama.
I heard a few words spelt wrong (like “d” when it was suppose to be “b”), so I didn’t quite understand the message when my my told me the first time over the phone. But in the wee hours of the morning today, I finally figured out what the customer’s message was — WAR EAGLE BEAT BAMA! Whoa, that certainly gave me good burst in the morning! With what school spirit rage still within me, I texted my mom back, “If he ever comes back to the factory, tell him, NO WAY! ROLL TIDE ROLL!”
Ah, the good ol’ college years 🙂
