It Ain't Camelot But It IS Prom Night


Ladies and gentlemen, I believe the long-anticipated prom is tomorrow night. Is everybody ready? Do the ladies all have their dresses and accessories ready, and the gentlemen their tuxedos? Are the corsages bought, and the beer stashed? How about the driving arrangements? Nobody's mom is dropping them off, I hope. Who needs fake ID? See the Planning Committee. Also see your local pharmacist. Be safe out there!

Since there are more girls than boys, has everybody decided on (and is happy with) who is escorting whom? I guess there's only one question left -- which one of you is my date? And do you plan to take me parking after the prom?

I'll be your date. Let's park BEFORE the Prom as well as after. That'll take the edge off, and make my moves on the dance floor more "fluid". Plus, I believe I'm supposed to "pin" you before we go.

Lee said...

I'm no where near ready, Serena...my dress remains unfinished. I've not found matching shoes. My corsage died and my escort got lost somewhere!

Serena Joy said...

Well, that's settled then, Puggy. You're taking me. To the prom, I mean. I think you're right about the pinning; it's traditional. Thing is, if we park first are we going to make it to the prom?

Serena Joy said...

Chop-chop, Lee! We have the escort situation covered. Finish that dress and get some live flowers. You don't want to miss the festivities.:)

Serena Joy said...

Woo-hoo, TWO dates! This is gonna be a hard decision.:)

Corn Dog said...

I already tore my dress and puked on the front porch and my date's not even here. Umm, who is my date?

Serena Joy said...

CD darling, your date is whoever is left over after I get mine. LOL. Hint: Sew up the dress and stop that puking! That won't look good on prom night.

Hale McKay said...

I suppose you and I can go see the Submarine Races after your other dates, SJ.

Serena Joy said...

What, nobody wants to DANCE with me? Y'all have heard about my clutzy reputation, haven't you? LOL!

Scary Monster said...

Corn Dog sounds like Me kinda girrrrrl. Me gonna see iffin me can whip up a tux before tomorrow.

FYI. Me actually went out on new years eve with a girl who did the exact same thing. Scouts honour!

Serena Joy said...

Get the tux, Scary. You don't want to have to wear a pink dress like our "prom queen" here. LOL.

I am very proud to say that (as well as I can remember) I only puked on dates twice. And I'm afraid I probably do mean literally on one of them.

May you all find serenity and fulfilment on this special night of nights.

bachelor #3..I want to be your date. I want to treat you like a queen, no horizontal rhumba for us on this special night, just a chance to kiss your sweet lips. We will reserve a classy hotel room with the finest room service. Several other couples will be with us to keep things from getting out of control.
A late night swim followed by a trip to the hot tub, more music, drink and food.
I promised your Dad I would take good care of you and I want to keep my word.:)
(please save the last dance for me)

Oh, SJ, you can't just SPRING it on us like this! I'm not READY!!!

Malnurtured Snay said...

Oh, prom? Where'd I leave my tux!

Serena Joy said...

Steve, it's going to be a serenity and fulfillment challenge to keep these promgoers under control and out of trouble. LOL.

TC, you said the word "treat like a queen." How can I say no?! The last dance is yours, and not just because my daddy won't shoot you.:)

Greeny honey, didn't you get your dress in April? Just put it on and you'll be ready to go.:)

MS, you being a guy and all, I'd look in your car for your tux.:)

Top cat said...

you look kinda tall, should I stuff something in my shoes?

Top cat said...
