Did you honestly expect me to pick just one bloggy carnival to play in?? Seriously??How long have you been reading me?? By now you should know I am as indecisive about these things as a hooker is about which John would be less intensive but give more money..wait bad analogy ah well on with the story…
The dress, the hair , the makeup, why the heck do I look like a pale porcelain doll?? Well I can answer that in a a simple word, well 2 actually, double pneumonia . You read that right , the day BEFORE my senior prom I left a hospital against doctor’s orders to attend my senior prom. Mind you I had not been to school in nearly 2 weeks, I had lost like 25 lbs, and I looked like death warmed over. But the rules were if you were not in school the day before prom you could not attend the prom. I was going. P.E.R.I.O.D. I had this dress for 2 months, my date KNEW what color the dress was, assured me that he had a tux ready and waiting for th big night, I just needed to get myself well enough to go.. Ahem.. yeah..
Notice anything?? Seriously?? Was he that color blind?? Yeah moving on it got so much better that night let me tell ya..
I had been dating the pictured guy for about 6 months. It was serious, longest time I had been with a guy serious.. he was going in the army after high school. I wanted to go to college. We had plans , dreams, yadda yadda. Anypromnightmare… we arrived at prom a few minutes late and took our seats at our labelled table. Everyone came up and hugged me and welcomed me back, well except for Marie ( name NOT changed cause well ya know how many Maries do you know) and Lynn. Lynn I understood she hated me for scoring a perfect 5 at teh singing competition before I was hospitalized, and I sounded like death warmed over. But the graded me on the fact I was apparently very ill and still busted my butt to get the high notes and sing my duet and solo without cracking I might add, but I did cough up a lung for 30 minutes following each performance. So anyhater, I got Lynn I didn’t get Marie, ohhhh but I would. We were seated with out student teacher in American History David, who was a cutie pie and his date was gorgeous. Did I mention that I came here in my junior year and discovered that the classes in VA were a wee bit more advanced then here in Ky. So many of the classes the seniors were having to take I didn’t have to as I had my credits needed, umm yeah AH was one of them lol. Anyway I knew the teacher and he and I talked and laughed and they started doing remember whens. Now this is the point at the prom where everyone writes embarrassing things about our senior class and breaks them out at the dinner.. like the one concerning Lynn giving OUT the birthday gifts at her party instead of receiving them and her car interior ceiling needing vacuumed of male footprints the next day.. Yeah you get the picture. Well they suddenly said , ” Remember when Marie took such good care of Robert while Angel was hospitalized?? Whoever is she gonna get to walk her to class now??” OHEMGEE. He squirmed like a whipped pup, SHE like an idiot came waltzing over to the table like I should just thank her skank butt for her kindness. NOT. She leaned over me putting her arms around my neck going you know this is just a joke right, I would NEVER… ummm right I know you remember…I calmly looked at David and said ” Someone better tell ho to get off of me cause I am still not 100 % but I will whip her a%$ like no one’s bidness if she don’t”. Robert was smart enough to push her off of me and was like now angel.. I just looked at him. I got up walked away from the table and into the lobby where I was suddenly surrounded by friends who were like, ” we didn’t want to tell you, we kept telling her back off, are you okay,” I smiled and said I am fine. I saw David and his date leaving the dinner and looking for me and I said , ” Where is your dorm and get me the hell outta here before I kill one of them.” They obliged.
I did go to after prom party with “Robert cause well he was my ride home and was able to leave about an hour into it to go home since I had been sick and all. I said not one word to him the rest of the night. Not ONE…He fell asleep in his car in my driveway.. I was not in the mood to invite him to sleep on the couch. He told me he was too sleepy to drive himself home, I said, ” good thing it’s a warm night huh?”
Monday Marie avoided me like the plague so did Robert and they avoided each other..
I went out with him a few more weeks until he came up with the I couldn’t go to college as a WIFE I was to work and stay home whie he went to college and have babies… UMMMM NOT>>>
I went to college ( didn’t stay past a year another story we won’t get into lol) oh yeah and I hooked up with David the summer of my senior year. That was a good summer… a reallll good summer lol…
