I've been digging through some of my old pictures and came across this picture of me at my senior prom. It was an ok time. Not as exciting as I had expected. First I had already gone on to college at the time as I had enough credits and grades were high enough so I really were away from those high school friends. I wasn't dating anyone so really didn't have a date. A boy that was a year younger than me was wanting to go. He was like a brother to me and in fact I had baby sat his younger sisters at times. So we went together. I had a great time with him as felt no pressure for anything really when I was with him. I had never had my hair put up at a beauty shop as I had endured the agony of my sisters visits when she went to dances. She would come home boo-hooing cause she didn't like it and then she would brush it all out (what a waste of money) and then just wear it down. But for my senior prom I decided to have mine done. When I got home, I hated it as it made me look like Shirley Temple but I wasn't about to pull a stunt like my sister and brush it all out. So when anyone said anything to me about my hair that night, I just told them I was starting a new trend. All the kids back then had planned to stay out all night. After the prom they were making a trip up to a lake cabin and continue there until the next day. I decided it wasn't worth the effort so I was home and in bed by midnight. Talk about cinderella. Funny thing is when I talk to my old schoolmates about how they felt about the prom that year and most said they hated it!!! Strange...I didn't hate it, just was surprised it wasn't what I expected.
