The Prom

It’s that time of the year. Back when I was in High School you had to have a date to go to the Prom. You’d see people start to pair up at the end of the year just so they’d have a one. Now you can actually go stag to the prom. I think that’s great. I think it should be that way. The last big party of the year to enjoy with your friends. It should be acceptable for all to go, with date or dateless.
My younger son just went stag to the prom with a bunch of friends that all had dates. He had a date that cancelled out on him, fortunately, she called before tickets were purchased, but he decided to go anyway. Good for him and he had a good time with his friends.
I was processing some pre-prom photos at one of those automatic machines in the pharmacy and there was a girl waiting to use the machine. It turned out she was waiting to process her prom pictures. She mentioned she had just broken up with her boyfriend that she had gone with to the prom and then added that she wished she had gone alone.
So, so much for having a date for the prom.
