prom

so, Mommy Martini is hosting a prom-story carnival where we all get to share our prom stories with each other... i know, fun, right? so here goes...

in high school, i wasn't the dating sort. i was the "i'm going to go off to college and meet the man of my dreams" sort. there were guys i liked and who liked me but i was holding out for college and the man of my dreams (who, by the way, i did find, thank you very much!).

anyway, senior prom. it was the best. ever. and i didn't even go. there was this guy who i was friends with. not even really good friends, but friends. and he knew that i (and a couple of other wonderful, beautiful girls) were not going to prom that year. and he thought that was a shame. so, the night after prom we all got dressed up and went over to his house and his mom made us a 5-course meal. then we went downtown portland took a horse-drawn carriage ride around the city. it was amazing and so fun and so no pressure. and all those boys who felt bad about not asking me to prom felt even worse since i had more fun without them!

What a great story! I love that a high school boy could be that thoughtful. This is charming, and I'm so glad you joined in the prom-carnival fun.
