Ok, so I was one year off but I didn’t get invited to my Junior prom either. Hell my Senior Prom was spent with my first love hanging out at his house until a horde of friends crashed it. There was a multitude of reasons why I didn’t end up going to prom:
- It cost too much to go (oh the joy of dating broke artists even back then).
- I wasn’t asked.
- I was asked but my date flaked.
So high school was a bust as far as prom. But what about the countless other Proms thereafter? Frankly the same things as I already stated happened. But more so, I wasn’t invited even though I knew about the events.
This year has been… a complete change.
The LA Derby Dolls are hosting a prom tonight and for the first time ever I will be attending a prom. Today after work I’ll be going home to primp and prepare for a Rock vs Rap themed prom. At nearly 30 this feels a bit silly to be so excited about.
