For YA Highway's Road Trip Wednesday this week, we're supposed to share our prom-dest memories.
The Prom! What fun! What freedom! What special treats!
First, you have to understand the deprivation...Nowadays, girls wear formal dresses to middle school dances, but back in the eighties (for me, at least) the proms were it...the only two times I spent more than twenty-five dollars on a dress for a dance.
And staying out late? Well, for the Cinderella me, midnight was it. Always. EXCEPT on my two prom nights.
And the planning:
-Dinner out before...also, not the usual for just any old dance (or date, for that matter).
-Pictures at various houses
-The formal dance- the only time we had a live band instead of a DJ.
-Afterprom- with matching casual outfits for dates (I know, how pukey sweet, but it was so cool then)
-The next day- canoeing my junior year and Kings Island amusement park senior year.
Ah, what fun. Did I already say that?
What about you? Prom- Boring? Bliss? Trauma? Heartbreak?
