Event: Senior Ball
Sonia writes: At my completely white-bread conservative high school, my friends Riel and Roman got made fun of a lot. But I think they look adorable here.
Frankly, if I had a girl with those gloves bopping around my gym floor, I probably would have kept my mouth shut. My assumption would be that she could beat me up and take my corsage without breaking a sweat.
I do wonder about the backdrop, though. The full moon over the Brooklyn Bridge feels a little “Werewolf of London” to me, and I’d be wary of any seniors who suddenly seemed to be in desperate need of a shave or a back-wax.
Lisa writes: The matchy matchy colors were NOT on purpose. Clearly we did not consult one another before getting dresses.
Well, sometimes these things just happen as if by magic. The universe says to itself, “I think I’ll take four, beautiful, unsuspecting girls and put them together in a limousine so they look like the cover of a Twilight Novel when they stand next to each other.”
Although if I’d had the figure to pull off any ONE of those dresses when I was in high-school, I wouldn’t have cared about the color scheme one darned bit.
Event: Senior Prom
Sarah writes: The original plan was for me to wear a tux and be his date, but all of the last minute headaches and costs caused me to back out, since I’ve never liked formal type events anyway. But Kassem forged ahead with the original plan! He was quite the belle of the ball, and certainly the talk of the whole school.
All I can say is damnit, if you’re going to look better than me in a dress, then at least be sportin’ some lame hair or major zits or something.
I hate when life is this unfair.
