The Prom that wasn't

Loralee has asked for prom stories. I would just leave my story in her comments but I haven't been able to think of much to blog lately so I decided to post it here.

You might not think I have a story because I was home schooled and didn't actually go to a prom. But I did get asked. Kinda. Well, someone, who for his own sake I will call "boy," didn't actually ask me. His mom asked my mom to ask me to go to prom with him. Lame. I told my mom to tell his mom that I "wasn't that into prom" because I didn't want to hurt his feelings but I did have some self respect.

Later on I was hanging out with a friend and her boyfriend who were going to the prom. She was telling me all about her dress and their plans, etc. She was talking about who else was going and who they were going out to eat with and somehow or another she mentioned "boy" so I asked if he was going. The boyfriend piped up and said "not likely." I was beginning feel a tad bit guilty that this sad boy didn't have a date when he continued. Apparently, boy had told boyfriend that he wouldn't go with anyone "unless she is willing to put out" and that he wasn't going to "spend good money on a tux and a corsage unless he would be getting laid that night." So I then told them the whole story along with the comment that it's a good thing I said no because he might have ended up really disappointed at the end of the night.

Now, to tell you the truth, I don't know if he asked his mom to ask my mom to ask me (which would make him lame) or if his mom just worried that he wouldn't have a date so she asked my mom to ask me (which would mean his mom thought he was lame) so I can't judge him (well, maybe I can) based on that part. But I do know that he didn't end up going to the prom. I guess he couldn't find anyone to fit his "high standards."

I ended up watching movies with another girl friend and making her fabulous coconut cookie recipe. All together, I am happy with what I got at the end of the night - that recipe, which I will have to post because they really are great, and I don't even like coconut.


  1. What a loser that guy was! I'm seriously glad that you stayed at home with the cookies.

    I'm still blown away that Craig went to FIVE FREAKING PROMS.

    Dude. I am so impressed.

  2. I didn't go to any proms since I was homeschooled and my husband (boyfriend at the time) is 4 years older than I so I couldn't go to his.

    I really don't regret it at all. It has always seemed a bit silly to me. Of course, I got married at 18 so our wedding was kind of like my senior prom. ;)
