I never went to my senior prom. The guy I was dating at the time, Lenny Gorski, made up some lame excuse about having to house-sit for his aunt. I explained to him that house-sitting didn't mean he had to sit inside her house 24/7 until she returned home! To add insult to injury, that evening--after the prom was underway--Lenny called me and asked me if I wanted to do something. "Go do something?" I thought. "Hmmm...Let's see...Like go to THE PROM!" I guess he just didn't want to go. That was in 1988.
Fast forward 20 years to last Saturday. I finally got to go to the prom--and not with some lame date, but with my forever sweetheart and husband, Eric! I was in charge of my church's annual Valentine Banquet again, and this year the theme was Prom Night. We had a catered dinner, live band and even the crowning of prom king and queen! It was so much fun, and I have to admit that dancing to "Love Shack" in the church youth center was one of the most fun things I've done in a long time! You should have seen Eric bustin' a move on the dance floor with his friend, Sean. They were hilarious!
So, I got to go to the prom after all; and this time with my husband and some of my closest buddies with whom I will be friends for years to come. Now that's the way to do a prom!
