Next Friday, Sept. 25, is the first Priory Junior School Mixer. None of the new seventh graders have been (I can name a few eighth graders who haven’t either), so it is important to explain the significance of this season’s most important social event. This mixer is a great opportunity to meet girls from schools like Visitation and Villa Duchesne, see Harry Thome and Luke Kraemer show off their smoking moves, and witness Mr. Bander demonstrating the proper usage of a hinge joint while he does “The Whip”.
The mixer is where we get to see who will replace Eddie Griesedieck '15 as the “Big Daddy Lady Killer." We will also find out who has the best aim for chucking glow sticks at the DJ’s. Contrary to what Nick Murphy wants you to think, Thatcher Eiseman has the most ladies’ numbers from mixers, with his record standing at 60-70 from Priory mixers last year, and an overall total of over 650 at last count. Warning: Ian Crossey will put you all to shame if you challenge him to a dance battle.
The music is almost always over 75 decibels, which is great if you are awkward at talking to girls- they won’t really hear your mistakes. They’ll just hear, “I go to Priory. I am the smartest and handsomest of all boys in St. Louis.” They will swoon into your arms. It has totally happened to me before. So come one, come all, to the annual Fall Mixer. If you’re lucky, you’ll see Father Francis breakdance using his crazy ninja skills!
