Overheard On The White Loop During THON

Spending hours and hours at THON can seem to blur the line between being awake and asleep. Some of the stuff you hear on the White Loop heading back and forth will make you think you were dreaming. We present to you our best overheard conversations, many of which happened in the middle of the night.

Guy who likes his Juul: Dude, I’m tryna rip hard on my Juul tomorrow when I come back.

Concerned friend: I don’t think you can get one of those in. R&R checks all of your stuff.

Guy who really likes his Juul: No, people brought them in. You could see guys blowing clouds into their shirts and stuff. I borrowed one and crouched down in my banana suit and ripped it, and it filled it up with smoke. People were asking me if I was okay but I was just doing that.

Guy who smells strongly of weed: I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling pretty saucy.

Girl he sat next to: *uncomfortable laugh*

Girl who is concerned for her life because of her THON shifts: I may literally die.

Guy who speaks for all of us: *snooring*

Guy who’s hit rock bottom: Last night, I hit a low point. I found a sandwich in the bathroom and I just ate it. I don’t even know where it came from.

Sandwich guy’s friend: I bet that sandwich was clutch, though.

Guy who hit his low point: Oh my god, it was so clutch.

Girl who has heard the line dance many times: I heard the line dance in my sleep last night.
