i don't think i will be posting anything new until probably monday unless i just can't help myself!
tomorrow is robyn's testing and then the prom and then good old mother's day--i think we have already been over this haven't we--
do you want to know something else about me--and in this day and time, it is kinda embarrassing --but i have never been to a prom---you see now days---it is like the thing to do---and it's like you have missed out on one of life's moments, if you don't attend a prom at least once--
back in my day, it was not cool to go to prom--at least not in the group i hung out with---not sure what group that was---i was part of the theatre group--but i think some of those kids went--but i was on the fringe of several other groups, non of which, would have dare darkened the halls of a school prom-----it was like a rite of passage to not go------
a little history---i was in a school the last two years of high school, that had just experienced the first and second year of school busing---things were not all that calm at the school i attended--i was even beaten up once by a girl at that----it was turbulent times and racial tension was at a fevered pitch---still i wanted to be there, not really at school but in the midst of history in the making---i was given the choice of going to a private school like my brother did---but not a chance----and i wouldn't take any of it back--i think-
i have recently joined a facebook page, for alumni---i don't know too many people on the page but have reconnected with a few ---i think most all of the people on the page would have most surely been at the proms----most of the members are from years ahead of my years at school--had i been a junior and senior at another time in history---i may have several bad pictures of bad prom dresses to remember too and maybe an old corsage pressed in a book somewhere --
i hope robyn will enjoy her prom as much as they seem to on glee and other tv shows and in many peoples distant recollections of those days for them-----i don't think i have ever really grieved the awful fact that i missed all of my proms----and you know something i have never thought of--i wonder if my mom missed me not going and not having the fun of picking out the perfect prom dress----sorry mom-----and happy mother's day to all of you---have a great weekend<3
