Girl 2: Why?

1. My life
2. A place where you can be yourself, and know that nobody (almost nobody) is going to make fun of you
3. The marching band consists of many social cliques, and gossip and fighting tends to spread around. But that's life
4. Normally comes with a color guard--the color guard is a group of girls, and sometimes a few guys.
5. The color guard is super annoying because they always try to take our boyfriends.
6. The color guard never stays on beat with us, and it really annoys us.
7. Band bus rides home, always consist of making out, cuddling, random singing, occasional dancing, and on special, romantic occasions, fingering. (Yes in the pants)
8. Band is NOT for nerds. Almost all the band members in our band are considerably attractive.

9. The band bus was where I got my first kiss.
10. The band director is a complete ass, but we don't care because being in band is totally worth it.
11. If you aren't in marching band you can never achieve the level of badass that we are.

12. BAND SHOWS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN LIFE ITSELF
One time we went on a marching band show and nothing felt more wonderful than hearing our highschool name announced over the loud speaker as first place winners. We hugged. We cried with joy. We screamed. We felt perfect. We were all a team of friends in unity. Nothing is better than that feeling.

The one hard, time consuming, learning experience that you wait all year for. Spending time with the boys, laughing at the trumpets, being molested by the low brass, never hearing the Clarinets. And making up stupid inside jokes and Callbacks. Hearing the phrase "Alright, one more time and we can have a water break! " from your director. But you never care. You enjoy it.
Why is the Football team on the Marching Band Field?

Life. You meet your bestest friends here and the whole band becomes your second family. Marching band is spent as work and play. You learn how to read drill charts, how to march CORRECTLY and IN TIME, and how to make non-band members be jealous of you. That's the work.

Band is also a lot of fun. The opinions of non-band members don't matter. Your fellow bandmates are the closest ones to you. You tell "one time at band camp" jokes, tell stories about when so and so screwed up, and just overall enjoy your time with your second family, the ones you love.

We work harder than the football team, we get more respect than the football team, and we practice longer than the football team. We are the only reason people come to the games. Don't listen to people who say band is weird. THEY ARE WRONG. BAND= LIFE. :D
(In a restaurant, two friends, one in band, one is not, are eating lunch.)

Dawn: I'm so excited to go to the football game tomorrow!
Jamie: Why? Our football team sucks! We're in last place too.
Dawn: Two words. Marching band.

1. The best and worst extracurricular activity you could possibly join.

2. A Package Deal!!

3. Better than the football team.
1. "Oh my god!" exclaimed Nina, "I had so much fun during marching band the other day!!" "But Nina," Tim said, "You were just complaining about how much you hated it two days ago!"

2. Set includes:

- At least two weeks of band camp

- Director(s) yelling at you to find your dot

- A complicated drill sheet/book

- Sometimes grouchy section leaders

- Unmanageable music

- No life

- Mandatory football games each Friday night

- Friends and memories you will never forget

- A new-found hate for the trumpet section

- MAYBE a trip to somewhere for a competition

3. Last year, the only reason why people came to the football games was to watch the marching band.
