Well, here it is. Prom. The big kahuna. The night that many a terrible, and also not so terrible movie has been based on or around. The event that's associated with drama, horrible dresses, up-do's, makeup, the perfect date. It's this, and so much more.
And I'm here to say that I won't be going. Mind you, I have nothing against the prom establishment, I just don't really want to go. In my mind, prom is just another Saturday night, plus lots of money and a dress you're probably only going to wear once. Maybe this is a cynical outlook, maybe not.
So, on this Saturday night, just like so many others, I'll be enjoying myself in my craft corner (just kidding, but I wish I had one) and relaxing. I won't have spent upward of five hundred dollars on the next three hours or stayed up inordinately late. And my life is just as rich without this time-honored tradition.
