Prom Queen

The rules: ~ Upload your prom picture. If you don't have one, email your mom and have her send it to you. ~ Don’t forget to include the year it was taken. Again, don't be shy. The older the better. ~ Grab the "Prom Queen" button and add to your post. ~Copy and paste the rules to your blog. ~ Tag 5 others! This Prom Queen thing is going around and while I thought it would be fun to post MY prom picture, I'm not going to tag anyone..if you want to post your prom pic, go for it!

The year was 1979 and I was a senior. This was taken by my mom in front of our house (condo) and it's one of the few pics taken by my mom where we have heads... usually she cut people's heads off when she took photos. I think it had something to do with her bi-focals... The dress is a lime green polyester number made by me. I LOVED this pattern the minute I saw it, because it has an attached wrap waist that can be wrapped seven, count 'em, SEVEN different ways! You could bring the wrap up and tie it around your neck, or drape it over your shoulders or tie it around your neck like a versatile! LOL! And no wrist coursage, just this giant bunch of yellow flowers that actually manages to clash horribly with the dress. My date was the guy I had been dating for a year and we got married in 1983. And then we got divorced in 1991. I think it's okay for me not to blur out his face because he's my oldest son's dad and we are still on speaking terms. Plus, his giant aviator glasses are pretty hilarious!

I would play along but I went to a boarding school where proms did not exist. They weren't considered cool. Instead we all gathered in the back 40 and did whippets and bong hits. Yay for memories.
