Boys, girls, men, women, life, the universe... and everything

  1. Meg went to the senior prom tonight. Well, yesterday, technically (it's early am here). She was beautiful. Hair all up and showing off what turns out to be a lovely, long neck. Who knew it was under all that hair? She didn't get either trait from me!

    Her friend-guy (definitely not a boyfriend) wouldn't be her date to the prom. They WENT together, they ATE together, and all that, but they're not dates. What-EVER.

    The whole group were here, and they were all so beautiful!! This actually makes me quit happy to be middle-aged! That was such a surprise that it was like a bloody kick in the teeth!

    She's home now and she has to call him to let him know she got home okay.

    Night, all!

    The whole prom thing kind of kicked me into middle-aged mode, I guess.

    The florist couldn't find our corsage when we got there to pick it up. A really ritzy academy was having prom the same night and the florist said he figured out that one of them just threw away the slip that said it was already sold, and took it. My comment was "Well, this is an unexpected delay." and my daughter was just so cool. She obviously expected him to make it right, and had no hysterics, no obnoxiousness about it at all! And man, did he make it right! It was beautiful, and we got to watch him make it. We were enjoying spending a little more time there than we'd "budgeted" (we just deleted the sushi lunch) and as he finished up, the florist said that he really appreciated us being so reasonable (not a b***h, he said - LOL) and told Meg to go into the cooler and pick out a package of roses. She picked out LOVELY ones and he gave them to us for free! This is a package of like two dozen roses!!!!

    So that was really nice!

    After the gang took off, I made hubby take me out to dinner at my favorite place. Sothat was nice, too.

    Mother/babyRN -

    I didn't go to either of my proms, either. The Junior prom, I elected to go spelunking with a bunch of friends (including a couple of faculty members - but that's a different story entirely). The senior prom, I was dumped just days before the prom. I actually think it was a retaliatory dump, but what the heck. I didn't have the strength of will to ask a friend to take me (both of my best friends took airforce guys and I know I could have found one too) and that was in the dark ages when you did NOT go with another girl!!!!! Oooohhhhh no!

    I am sure I would have taken my cuz to the prom if he'd been on the same continent at the time! He was one of the best-looking teenagers I've ever met.

    Ah well.

    I'm glad your daughter had a wonderful time at the prom, and made it home safe and sound. I went through the prom thing with three daughters, so your post comments brought up memories for me too. (((HUGS)))

    Junior year I truly took a friend, in his 20's, never went to his prom. Had an absolute blast--he teased me all night about dipping me and dropping me--so when I finally, actually fell we both had hysterics.

    Senior year went with my first true love--engaged to be married and in love with the idea of getting married. Then, I found his playgirl collection, but THAT'S another story best left to the imagination.........................
