Yesterday, I came up with a great idea for a #ThrowbackThursday post, but somewhere between it popping into my head and now… it vanished. I have no idea what it was. How is it that sometimes I still think that those “genius” ideas will not float away without me writing them down?
Do you sometimes forget the things you want to write about? Or is it just me?
Today I look back on my prom. It was just a couple months before high-school graduation. It took us countless hours to perfect synchronized waltzing, which was a “must – do” and involved all the teachers and students. Needless to say, the formal dance was considered a “big deal”.
However, as the day approached, I got less and less excited due to not having a date. My friends and I finally decided to skip it all together. There were not many people in our class that were actually dating, but at that point, I did not seem to realize that. Back then, I did not know one could have a good time without having a proper date to the ball.
My Mom, on the other hand, would not have any of this. She did not care I did not want to go. She said she would make all the arrangements and that I had to go, or else I would regret it. And so she made sure my friends and I ended up having dates for the evening (hail family and their friends). I had no choice then but to go.
And go we did. We danced most of the night away. We talked and we laughed, knowing that we would all go our separate ways in just a couple of months. We had A BLAST!
Today I am happy I went…
Did you go to Prom? Did you have a good time? Any fun stories to share about it?

Song for the day:
“…If you can’t get what you want
Then you come with me
Up on melancholy hill
Sits a manatee…”
