Prom was a blast. First we had to go to the park for pictures, which was a nightmare waiting to happen. My friends told me to meet them at the old cabin that we have located in the center of the park at 3:30. I was the only one to show up at the cabin. I waited for half an hour and finally started searching through the crowd down by the lake in the park, looking for someone, anyone, that I might know. My mom showed up so I went back up to the park to get pictures with her.
After another half hour, one of my friends showed up. I got pictures with her, and then we went to find more of the others. We found a few, but one of them hadn't shown yet, and I was supposed to give him a ride. We had dinner reservations at 5, so we were getting pressed for time. Finally, at 5, my friend I was supposed to give a ride to showed up. We got all our friends together and went to dinner.
Thankfully, they held the reservation.
Finally, we went to the Prom. We had a blast. We danced and danced and danced until my legs were so sore I could hardly move. We all had a really good time. One of my friends started getting sick during Prom, he has Acid Reflux and eating battered jalepeno strips and then dancing and shaking wasn't good for his stomach, but he started feeling better.
Then we went to after-Prom which was okay. They had a mechanical bull, a giant wall of velcro that you could hop onto, a giant game of twister, and some strange mini-golf game where you had to wear glasses that distorted your vision to play, but that was all. It was like being at a fair with only a few rides. I couldn't do the mechanical bull--my legs were still sore from dancing. So we decided to leave. I did, however, win $12 before I left, which was a happy surprise.
Then we went to one of my friends house and watched movies with her and several other friends all night long. We had a lot of fun, and we didn't drink, proving (although I never doubted) that you can have fun without getting drunk.
It was an awesome night, a great send off to my Senior year.
