Prom memoriesPosted Friday, March 13, 2009, at 9:43 AM
To Prom or not to Prom..
That always brings me back to my high school days. (shudder)
I would like to know your stories on Prom/high school, do you have good memories or like mine it is memorial.
Here is my story:
I lived overseas, so when we came to the USA i had to have two classes.. to graduate otherwise i would have graduated in 1979.
Texas history and health..so boring..
so time goes around for the prom, i knew a dude i was friends with in health class. He was a riot, funny, neat and a delight to be around. His name is Kevin.
So,prom is coming and he said hey i am going but don't have anyone to escort, ya wanna go?
Sure, might be fun..
So my MOM, gets wind and wants to dress me up like Barbie..
I was more of a leather and laces gal.
So i got this Grecian over the shoulder teal coloured dress (i told mom John Belushi's Toga looked better) and these ridiculous shoes to match..
So prom night came around:
I wait, and wait and WAIT.. for Kevin to show up...
Finally I get pissed (can i say that?) and go to Kevin's house...In my ridiculous garb with the '80's poofy hair..
His older brother said he went to so and so's (a gay bar) with someone...effeminant. So that is why Kevin was so neat and never had a girl friend? DUH.
I saw red! I am dressed in the uncomfortable garb and shoes and he is frolicing with the Village People!
So i did what I would usually do... Got out of the stupid dress, put my leathers on(and Doc Martens) and went to the Gay Bar!
I found Kevin, Gave him a good peice of my mind,and had a blast..They were fun! They did not try to hit on me when they got drunk.
My MOM was not amused.. the dress cost quite a bit and so did those stupid dyes shoes..
The dress stayed in my closet for 18 years, and then i gave it away.
Kevin has since passed away due to complications from AIDS, but we had fun, and i have some hilarious memories of the High school i took two classes from.
What are your stories? I hope you had a laugh from mine..
Have a good weekend.
