The one comparison that worked for prom last night was how it resembled a bat mitzvah, complete with the cha-cha slide and cotton eye joe, but with fancier attire, mani-pedis, and curling iron hairdos. I know I said that I wasn't sure about going, but I wouldn't have done it differently if I had to do it over. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to go to prom and spend less than three hundred dollars. Especially if you beautify yourself. That was one of the funnest parts; going to the nail salon, then doing hair and makeup, getting ready together and taking pictures.
Bottom line: I had a good time.
Now, I have to go to sleep, since we stayed up until 5 at the after party. More on that later.
