I went to prom 20 years after you, John, and had a blast. We packed into a van in our simple dresses and marveled at the ballroom. We ate a banquet and took professional group photos. When my dress broke, my AP U.S. History teacher pinned it with a safety pin - she brought a ton, just in case. And our school of black and brown kids taught our white teachers some dances. When one school was rowdy and got kicked out, the hotel was so gracious to us they gave us an extra hour to party. And after, we packed into more cars and went to Dallas BBQ where we ate and laughed until closing. I walked around with my date, my friend, and her date (we brought flats for after). We went to a music store and played instruments, in our fancydress. Somewhere in Chinatown, my date stole flowers from in front of a shop and gave them to me (he'd wait several months to ask me to be his girlfriend). He walked me to my building around dawn. And when my mom saw the stupid grin on my face, she wasn't even mad I missed curfew. I give prom 3 and a half stars.

I didn't go to my prom either. When my daughter told me she wouldn't be going to hers I was a little sad. But I couldn't find out where that sad was coming from until I realized I just wanted my daughter to experience things I didn't get the chance to. Eventually I came to terms with it.
