Ten years ago (groan) I was a Junior in High School preparing to attend my very first prom.
In addition- not only was I going to attend- but it is tradition that the Juniors HOST the prom. So I was on the Prom planning committee. This is a very important piece of information that I will use in my defense later. Make note :-)
Talk of prom was echoing through every hallway....ok, so maybe we only had 2 hallways at my school...but still.. Everyone was talking and planning.
One morning I was on my way into my AP English class (did I really need to specify that it was an AP course? No. Just trying to impress you.)...ANYWAY. Was walking into my class when I was stopped in the hallway.
Please picture this with me. Door to classroom is open. One foot in. One foot out. I've turned to the guy who said "Minda!"
I turn and said "what's up?"
He said...."Do you have a date for prom?"
Without missing a beat, I said "Yeah, it's May 12."
As soon as the words were out of my mouth- a awkward look came across his face and I just stared......Then I head laughing coming from inside the classroom.
And then I realized what had just happened.
The guy laughed....turned away....and walked off.
I, then, had to turn and face my classmates.
For someone who is on the planning committee- that was a normal response, right?!?!?!? ;-)
Here's to 10 years of learning to embrace my ignorance in regards to dating/being asked out/the like. ...Oh and here's to 10 years since having Country Music Award styled hair.
