Prom: a paradise and borders

Who can forget their first prom? You were a junior, excited about all that's going on with you in high school and knowing that next year you will be a senior. These last eleven years have flew by a bit too fast.

Then you get the chance to ask "that' special girl to the junior prom. Of course you are nervous and excited. You have embraced the fact that the prom is "your" time to party and get to know the girl you have liked since seventh grade. Life is sure interesting.

Blonds, brunettes and redheads. They are all gorgeous at the prom.

Do you realize

That every year in the United States that literally billions are spent by young people on prom fixings such as designer dresses, tuxedos, limousine rentals, food, private party location rentals, jewelry, flowers and the list is growing. Prom season is great for the economy.

A lot of fun both rowdy and decent is always present at any prom that is held in our country. And there is always "that" kid who sneaks in a few bottles of liquor to put in the fruit punch. And then there are those kids who "live in the fast lane" and spend the entire night in the restrooms smoking "weed," taking pills and losing all touch with reality. Sorry, but this is a sad fact about proms.

Special moments to remember

Guys, how would you have liked to take this pretty girl to your prom?

It's your choice, kids

Do the right thing and respect your chaperones and get home alive or join the "dark side," as it were, and pardon this saying from the 60's, "let it all hang out," with kids who do not care in the least about themselves, the school, their family and friends. I would think that the choice is obvious.

Chaperones are

Usually a few of your school's teachers who have volunteered to be present at your prom to make absolutely-sure that things go well and things are kept in order so everyone will have a good time.

So I give you this free advice to keep you out of trouble and make your prom the best.

Students: Things You Must NOT Do to Disrespect Your Prom Chaperones

  • Stay sober all times. If you choose to drink, stay at home and drink with your parents.
  • Do not get high on "weed" sneaked into the prom and disrobe in front of everyone just to be "that kid" who got naked in the prom memories of everyone.
  • Do not vandalize school property in any way. Remember that there are other classes behind you who will be using this same building.
  • Guys, see the girl at the very top of this hub? Sure, she is hot and very pretty. But does that give you license to make cheap come-on remarks to her at the prom?
  • And girls, although there are no photos of hot guys in this story, you are not given license either to make cheap come-on remarks to them as well.
  • Do not try the dumbest thing you can do at a prom: Sneak a firearm into the festivities. If you are caught, you will go to jail.
  • Do not try to sell any controlled substances or you will get the same trip to jail. So do not try to make your prom reflect the movie: "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."
  • Please respect each other. Do not start fights with others to just show how stupid you are.
  • Do not get drunk and then sneak out to have drag races somewhere out of town. Remember that you can be jailed for buzz driving or driving while intoxicated.
  • Making improper and inappropriate advances toward your date or any female present is grounds for arrest. Remember this, guys.
  • Inappropriate wardrobe is not acceptable to attend the prom. Example: showing-up with just underwear will get you jailed and laughed at by everyone.
  • Chasing others around the gymnasium or whatever the prom location is cracking a dangerous bull whip is against school policies.
  • Throwing dangerous objects at people such as punch glasses, shoes, or a few baseballs some bullies have stolen from the coach' office are not acceptable.
  • Engaging your chaperones with threats or violent acts is not acceptable and will get you arrested.
  • Releasing swarms of bees, flies or other insects or wild animals is totally-against prom rules.
  • Recreating key scenes from "Carrie" or any teen movie starring Jennifer Love Hewitt is illegal.
  • Breaking into the school's classrooms to steal school property is a criminal offense.
  • Waiting outside the prom locale to mug or cause bodily-violence to other prom-goers will get you arrested and jailed.

Note: Prom is one of your most-important milestones as a high school student. Do me a personal favor and do not do anything on this list that will not only get you and your friends in trouble, but disrespect your chaperones. Have a great life.

Man! Where was this hub 24 years ago? Oh, that's right. We didn't have the internet then! lol Very funny hub. It brings back a lot of memories.

P.S. I would have sooooo made cheap remarks at the girl in the first picture if I was in high school!

TheBizWhiz,

You sound like my type of writer and friend. That line about making cheap remarks got me. In my prom days Yukkk, all I and my buds were needed for was to give the Upper Class our money, but we were never asked to help design a theme or even put up that stupid crepe paper. I hated that.

And truth be known . . .IF there had been a girl LIKE the one in the first photo, you wouldn't find me here replying to you right now. I would have convinced this girl to run away with me to enjoy life in our world and not be consumed with reality, responsibilities and such.

But there were NOT any girls like her in my days. I hate that.

Wonder where she is now?

TheBizWhiz,

You are right again, my friend. What part of Alabama do you reside? I am not prying, just curious. I live in rural northwest Alabama in Marion Co., in Hamilton, a town that resembles Mayberry, the famous town of Andy Taylor and Barney Fife.

And truth be known, thanks to you getting me to thinking about them, there is not one girl on THIS hub that I would not try to take out back in my healthy, youthful day.

Not a one.

Write when you can.

BizWhiz, are you serious? For reals? I wish you had stayed, man. Our town is sucking down it's last breaths seeming to me. Our mayor and city council apparently do not want new stores or industry at all due to some pressure from the "old money" who always get to every mayor we elect and they will not get out and talk Hamilton up to new business.

No wonder I fight depression all of the time. Not for me, but for my three grandkids who I do not mind them going off to college, but having to move to get a job? This is so nuts that Stephen Wright could write an entire monologue from how nuts the old, used-up system really is.

Hey, why not buzz up here to meet me and I will spring for a nice lunch for you. And you can buy me a cup of coffee.

Deal?

Sounds like a plan. I as swamped right now, but I will take a rain check.

BizWhiz,

It's a deal. Just email me through my profile page and let me know when you are coming and we will have lunch (on me) with you buying my cup of "Joe." I am looking forward to this high-level rural summit meeting.

Have a safe and memorable weekend.
