To business: a corporate-controlled/ promoted high school "institution" that makes the dress shops, hairdressers, flowershops, limo companies, suit rental places, etc more wealthy.
To the students who don't get to go: a lifelong regret, an occasion that fat chicks can not get a date for.Makes more people unhappy than any one other thing in highschool...
So she gave me a blowjob just like any other date, and she's still a virgin.
Lesli, will you be my date for prom 2010?
Vincent: Sorry, Jeremy, but I'm not interested in a school dance where they hire crappy DJs and make crappy cardboard cutouts for decorations.
Usually the ones that go to prom are
1. Steady couples
2. The popular girls dating the popular guys
3. Horny creepy looking guys looking to get laid
4. A few, not too many, random couples that just want to go
5. A few people that just can't get a date but still go just to "say you been there." Usually are a little chubby, gay, or socially inept.
When you get there, you eat food in the weirdest combinations like lasagna and mashed potatoes and dance to stuff that you hear on Top 40 at Wal Mart or something off the local urban station.
2. She went with somebody less nice but more attractive that's alright I had a dream about going with her and had the time of my pathetic life.
3. I got rejected to prom so, I brought the Prom to me. In my room, the music was loud, the food was Pizza Pockets and my date was a bottle of booze. I sure had fun. (Damn)
