    Prom

    Did you have a good time at yours, and was it what you expected/wanted? For me, I got dumped the week before prom, so instead my dad and his friends came over & we played cards. I ended up winning $25. So mine was both good and bad. You?

    I didn't go to prom. I was kind of a loner and kind of anti-social. The people I hung out with were not the "prom" type. Some people told me that I would regret it and that I would miss high school. They were so wrong.

    I'll admit I had fun at my Junior and Senior proms.

    Senior year it was held at (at the time called)Marine World. I showed up in a white tux with tails. Then afterwards, a group of us went to Santa Cruz for the weekend. Good times!

    that's funny to think of so many years past.... I remember a group of us going to a very upscale restaurant and my date forgot his wallet ... lol .. I wasn't laughing. He was alright, he gave me the money a couple days after for the our bill. Which was nice, I think it was a legit mistake...He was good looking, so that helped too. ha. I remember my ex was upset that he didn't take me, because even though we were broken up, he thought he should be able to take me....

    Don't think you missed much HUMCALC, but then I was never that into that stuff myself. I didn't go to junior prom, just wasn't interested, but felt like it was some sort of requirement to go to the senior prom, so went to that...

    I went to both junior and senior proms and, was a real let down. And wasn't really my thing anyways... Senior prom I was home and in bed by 10ish. Had to work the next morning, had wheat pasture cattle to check...

    Looking back at it, Prom was pretty “meh” to me.

    Don’t get me wrong. I had a cute date and it wasn’t like it was a bad time for a high school thing. But comparing it to something like a buddy’s wedding, it gets a big fat 0.

    Always good to see you Dave!


    And yes, I agree! If not for prom, probably one of my favorite movies "The Girl Next Door" never gets made!



    (It's a must watch.. don't get turned away by the plot preview).

    I went. It was fun I had a good time. I went in a group and we all agreed to pitch in to pay for the limo but someone didnt and we were like 100 bucks short. I ended up paying for it because I'm a cool guy. No one knew except my GF at the time. Didnt get laid and didnt get drunk but I was out till 4. The after prom party was fun though
