You Know You're a Debater If...Monday, May 26, 2014
Sticky notes are your best friend.
When you have free time, you research.
Going shopping means looking for a new suit.
Debate camp is a highlight of your summer.
You find yourself practicing a speech in a bathroom mirror.
You memorize a complete case on the way to the tournament.
Or, you rewrite your complete case the night before said tournament.
Nothing frustrates you more than the CX answer, "I don't really know what you mean" when you know they know exactly what you mean.
A debate tournament becomes a family vacation.
Your entire spring is filled up with said tournament/vacations.
You have a favorite pen — and it's probably at the bottom of your debate box.
You call out logical fallacies in normal conversation.
Being called to JO sounds like a death sentence.
You can reference the Social Contract theory in everyday life.
The talk of the year is complaining about the new debate resolutions. (They're hated every year—just get over it.)
The NFL doesn't make you think of football.
You know that "breaking" is a good thing.
Even if you're now alumni, you find yourself coaching or writing about debate. (Hence, this very post.)
