My friend was telling me about her granddaughter’s prom. It seems one of her granddaughter’s friends came by with a knapsack of bottled water “for the limo.”
Her daughter, having been raised by my sharp-eyed friend, opened one of the bottles and sniffed. It was filled with vodka.
“I did what you would have done, Mom,” she told my friend. “I emptied them all out, filled them with water and put them back in the limo.”
I only went to one junior prom at the boys’ school and found it excruciatingly boring. How bad was it? I couldn’t wait to get home.
My mother was upset that I didn’t go to my senior prom, didn’t even want to go. “I just can’t see spending all that money,” I told her. “For what?” (Plus, by then I was dating someone seven years older and I didn’t see him as high school prom material.)
Was I all that unusual? How many of you went to your proms? Was it worth all the hype?
