...there was a 17-year-old girl who was forced to drag her butt out of bed everyday. Only to drag her reluctant self to school. Sometimes, the dragging was more intense than others. It was ALWAYS intense for her mother. But it was always there. The Renegade. Never one to joyously join in and participate in the "normal" school activities without persuasion...the idea of going to PROM wasn't always a given. Luckily prom fever prevailed. She fell victim. Mom was happy. All was right in the world.
"Prom has all the elements of a popular story...
...it reeks of all-Americanness, tension and drama." And yes, there was plenty of tension and drama. Let's just say that if it weren't for teen age boys...I'd love to be a teen age girl again. And I'm reluctant to admit that moms of teen-age boys probably feel the same towards teen-age girls.
(aka...the dress zipped up without incident!)
It has romance, pretty dresses, smiles and laughter...
Like all good theatre and performing arts geeks, the importance of stage props is not lost on these kids.
High school prom. Coming of age. It's kinda worth dragging your butt out of bed for on occassion.
Not to mention, some day her future kids will want these photos. It's always good to have ammunition to make fun of your mother with when she is trying to drag your lazy butt out of bed in the morning to go to school! Karma. Totally counting on it! Well that AND the fact that she lives happily ever after.
