Senior Prom 1985...with a story.
Friday, May 23, 2014
This was June 1985. My prom date was Alan. He forgot to tell me that he had a girlfriend at the time.
I paid for the tickets and it was a night to remember.
First, he arrived to my house two hours late. He left my flowers on top of the car (at his house a half hour away) and drove away. His mom found them in the street. I have prom pictures with my friend, her date and myself. My mom said that I would laugh about it one day.
My dress was a 5/6. When I tried it on, they did not have my size a 7/8. The lady at the store had a hard time zipping it up and said...I quote, "Someone has been eating too many cookies!". I stopped eating and as you can see from the picture, lost too much weight. I ended up with a "peek-a-boo" dress. [at least "they" were perky then
I love that dress. It was circa Gone With The Wind! I still have it in my attic. I could not part with it. My date was a flop but the dress was a hit.
My date to this prom is:
my son Nason
