These are a few (less graphic) pictures of our school’s annual Whole Milk Two Mile. My friend and I dressed up as Sailor Venus and Sailor Uranus (on a college budget and little time). I ended up being Sailor Venus and my friend was Uranus, but it originally was supposed to be the opposite. I wish I had been Sailor Uranus. My friend ran while I poured milk for her. She only ended up running a mile before she pulled herself from the race. Then she puked…a lot. It was actually really impressive. While rubbing her back as she was hunched over, I was thinking, “Uranus…Stomach…PURGE!!” and other attack names.
One cool/dumb thing about the night though was a friend of mine realized instantly that we were characters from Sailor Moon. I was excited to find another moonie at my university, especially when she went on and on about how she LOVED Sailor Moon. She talked about how she had the dolls at her house. I got more excited.
Then she said, “Oh yeah, what’s the guy’s name in the show?”
“Tuxedo Mask?” I answered.
“Yeah, him! The guy with the rose!!”
Then she goes on to talk about how Sailor Saturn’s outfit is yellow and orange.
People amaze me sometimes. I’m done with life for the night. Good night.
So tomorrow is an annual event at my university called the Whole Milk Two Milk. Everyone in the race drinks a cup (8oz.) of whole milk right before the race. Then they all run a lap (1/4 of a mile) and drink another cup of milk. This continues for 8 laps (two miles). Every runner throws up multiple times, but there is great glory to whoever wins. Smelly, lactic glory. Most of the runners dress up in ridiculous costumes to add to the fun. Each runner also has what we call a milk maid (or milk whore) that pours the milk while the runner is doing the lap. It isn’t uncommon for the milk maid to dress up as well.
This is my best friend (milk maid) and the guy that ran. He even went so far as to dye his milk green both to match and to see where he vomited once the race ended.
Anyways, the fun part is that one of my good friends will run this tomorrow. I will be her milk maid. We are dressing up as Sailor Moon characters! I’m not sure if it will be pure awesomeness or pure terror to have Sailor Venus running around an oval drive while puking milk everywhere while Sailor Uranus is pouring her milk and holding her hair back and cheering while she’s puking and drinking at the same time. But it will happen. And it will be worth it. I’ll try to get some pictures tomorrow to post.
