Junior Prom 1986

I can't believe that it has been 25 years since my Junior prom, not that I really enjoyed myself at this event. I was set up for it with a friend of our family friend and I think that the only reason that he was going was because one of his friends had also been set up with a guy in my class. They were both seniors. We are all in the picture outside of my apartment. The prom theme song was Phil Collins' One More Night. I don't really remember much about the night only that I was glad when it was over and wished that I hadn't even gone. Boy does my hair look ridiculously high. My brother and others said that my date looked like Duckie from Pretty In Pink. I wonder if my aunt still has that Jessica McClintock Gunne Sax southern belle type dress in her attic - probably not, I think that she had been planning on giving this and other stuff to the thrift shop years ago. I do still have the gloves, shawl and jewelry though.

You looked so pretty LaraAnn!

I remember nights like that when you wished you didn't go but in retrospect it's experience and learning.

I'm in awe of all the photographs and mementos you've kept. Awesome.

Hope all is well with you! :)

Thank you very much, Chelly. That's so true - if I hadn't gone maybe I would have regretted it even though it wasn't like the best of times. It probably would've been better if I had a boyfriend to go with then!

I am doing a little better these days despite Mom's bad fall and broken collarbone. I finally joined Twitter today - you did say that you are on there, right?

Well - if it's of any solice - I never went to a single junior high or high school dance or prom, and I turned out ok!! :)

It does look like you were dressed up for a pretty fun night, though. And for the '80s, you were looking pretty chic.
