Everybody wants to be the star of the show.
When we crowded into the lecture hall of Hamilton 100, the site of many a chemistry 101 and 102 test, failure and forgone dreams of first-year, pre-med students hung in the air. But then the fluorescent overhead lights went down, and the spotlight shone on the Chapel Hill Players (or CHiPs).
We will admit, when we heard about CHiPs’ upcoming show, “CHiPs Reads the DTH,” we were so excited. We were expecting some quality, student-journalism-centric content. We would have even been OK with a good old-fashioned roast. Anything to make us feel relevant. Walking down the awkwardly-laid-out steps of Hamilton, we felt like we were walking down the red carpet — the faces of the DTH have entered the building.
But alas, we were not the main event. They only used the paper for two or three sketches. We’ll admit, we were disappointed, but also humbled.
Nonetheless, we laughed.
