Last night, both my son who is a senior, and my daughter who is a junior, attended their high school’s prom. I thought I’d write about the whole prom experience from my point of view, but realized that my view basically includes bills and driving around and it really isn’t too entertaining. So, instead I decided to write two posts: one from my son’s perspective and one from my daughter’s because their takes on the same event are quite different.
As far as I can tell, this is how it works.
The boy will ask the girl to prom in a creative and romantic way that outdoes his friends. He’ll order a corsage and a tux (whatever combination in the Big Book of Tux Pictures looks good). He’ll probably get a haircut after his mom tells him he’s looking shaggy, and insists he get one. On the day of the event, he’ll shower, dress, and show up when and where his date has instructed him to go. He’ll grudgingly stand still, or ham it up like a goofball for pictures.

So, here is prom according to my son:
That’s pretty much where Austin’s prom story ends because he didn’t take pictures while at dinner or prom. His girlfriend, on the other hand, has pictures because that’s what girls do. He had a great time and was glad he went despite his earlier profession that he didn’t want to attend.
