Prom - "(Short for "Promenade") -A formal (black tie) dance, or gathering of high school students. It is typically held near the end of the senior year. It figures greatly in popular culture and is a major event among high school students."
NO where in there does it mention 'bumping', 'grinding','thrusting' handing out glow stick at the door, everyone mauling each other on the dance floor. When I heard what the theme was going to be I posted a Facebook status that said...
I give you "Better Prom" circa 2008.
forced by our Mothers we went to real Prom.
One of the high lights of my Prom (and provably in the top 10 for High school) was when the DJ put "sing sing sing" on and everyone left the dance floor, I grabbed T.K.'s ( girl in the pink dress) hand and said "Lets go!" and for three minuets we tore up the dance floor with the best swing moves we had! People stared, teachers clapped, and a few of our theater friends jumped in. That was provably the only reason I didn't completly HATE my Prom.
And Then we headed for the Casablanca!
