On the tv news today, a woman being interviewed about a neighborhood summer festival showed a video which included a band. One band member wore a blue and white Phi Beta Sigma hat.

Several weeks ago on a single parked car were several very large rear-window stickers indicating University of Missouri, Sigma Sigma Sigma, University of Wisconsin, and Delta Delta Delta.

Last week I ran into a fellow Alpha Xi at Target. She was wearing an event shirt and chatted with her for a little.

Last summer I was on vacation in Hawaii with my family and I ran into an ASA alumna who commented on my tote that had letters on it. The next day, someone noticed my letters on my shirt and my school's logo on my flip flops and said they were an AOPi at my school and good friends with one of my sisters. Such a small world!

I just started a new job on Monday. Today I was talking to the person training me, and I mentioned how I'm the editor for my sorority's magazine. She asked me which sorority and then said she's a KKG.

I saw a few people wearing Delta Sigma Pi letters around New Orleans this evening. It seems their Grand Chapter Congress is taking place here this week.

I actually found out yesterday that TWO people I know are members of NPCs.

I went to dinner with my parents and some of their friends who I've seen a dozen or so times. We got into useless hidden talents we have and for some reason started reciting different alphabets. The one woman said she could do the Greek alphabet, and I said it with her. I then said the only reason I knew it was because I'm in a sorority. She asked which one, then told me she's a Chi Omega.

Surprised she didn't confuse you by reciting the greek alphabet backward, as I understand all Chi Omegas must learn it that way.

Is that before or after they get in and out of the coffin?

Sorry, couldn't resist!

I just tested myself and I was able to do it, but there was a some mental, "let's run the alphabet forwards to figure out what is before a specific letter."

OTOH, Given that Chi Omega's chapter ordering (Psi to Alpha, Psi Alpha to Alpha Alpha, Psi Beta to Alpha Beta, etc), it seems like a reasonable thing to expect pledges to learn.
