And now I’m back on schedule! Woot!
I was fifteen and a freshman the first time I went to prom. I can hear it now: “How the…What the…Huh? Aren’t those for upperclassmen?”
My freshman year, I befriended an upperclassman who asked me to go to prom with him. I, of course, was flattered beyond belief and quickly said yes. Since he waited till the last minute to ask me, I scored a great dress for a nominal price. A couple of older girls took me dress shopping since I didn’t have a car and even offered to do my make-up for me. Dressed to the nines, I was all set to enjoy my night, despite the fact that we were being chauffeured by his parents because my date couldn’t drive.
