In fact, when you’re 40 and driving to prom interesting things go through your head. Did I pay the electric bill? Did we feed the dogs before we left the house? What happens if we get in an accident on the way to prom and first responders wonder why I’ve poured myself into a pink taffeta gown? Thankfully, that didn’t happen and the electric bill did indeed get paid and the dogs were fed.
Not that I have a lot to base past proms on, but those folks at Bridges and the members of Norman Next know how to put on a good party. There was food, great music and a lively crowd. It almost makes me wish that everyone at Prom 2.0 was actually in my high school class. There were no fights, everyone was nice and nobody, that I know of, defaced any school property within the city limits.
Although I didn’t get the full prom experience I would have gotten 22 years ago, I didn’t have to worry about curfew and I knew that my parents weren’t going to be waiting up for me when I got home. I also know that I had a better date than I would have in high school, even if I had to be asked to be asked and he didn’t take me to Pizza Hut.
