I was so excited to finally get to do a little prom work today. I missed the one-on-one interaction, discussing flowers and colors. The girls would bring in their dresses to get that perfect ribbon match.
Last year all Proms, Senior Balls and Winter Balls were cancelled to the disappointment of so many High Schoolers. Those awkward teen years filled with academics, sports, friendships, assembly’s and special events such as dances. All part of what High School is about.
I remember the fun I had shopping for dresses and hoping no one else bought the same one. But unfortunately, it really happened to me!!~ Someone wore the same dress I had to our Senior Prom. What are the odds in that? An even bigger surprise for me was that it was the girl next door. I cringe at the thought of someone yelling out “ Look, they are wearing the same dress”! Ha Ha! Followed by “Who Looks Better”? Yes kids can be heartless and not realize how hurt we were but it’s all about growing up. !!
Here is hoping 2022 is a better year for the world.
