Awhile back, I wrote an article for Purple Clover about all the depressing art that hung in my childhood home, including a depressing red clown
Anyway, there it is. I'm showing it to you twice because I need you to appreciate its horridness. And no, I wasn't really drinking when I was in 7th grade and a man. I was being hilarious. You'd never guess what era this picture was taken given the couch or the plant or the latch-hook owl. I made that owl pillow. I know. Crafty. And she's just my type.
Oh my god, this is not remotely why I gathered you here today. I gathered you to ask about your prom, and I did a Google search for my prom dress by doing "byebyepie + prom" and somehow the vampire clown picture came up. Which, wow, does that mean I've shown it to you before? Almost every day since 2007, folks. I forget what I say.
I don't see a picture of me at prom, but there WAS a picture of cute Ned at his prom.
There was also me in the dress I wore to my friend Sandy's wedding in 2009.
Which is hilarious.
I have no idea how these pictures fell under the purview of "byebyepie + prom" but there it is.
OHMYGOD YAY! Finally! Here are my white shoes and me and my best friend Donna, at prom, in 1983. The theme was Brick House. The theme was Comedy Club Backdrop. The theme was Chimney Sweep. It's hard to tell it's 1983 with the hair and the dresses and the pearls. Wow.
And by the way, the actual theme of my prom was In the Air Tonight, like the Phil Collins song. It's hard to tell what era my prom was in, what with the Phil Collins.
Donna and I were one person in high school. We met the first day, the first hour, and it was over from that moment on. So although we had dates, like actual boy dates, we made a big deal out of wearing matching dresses and walking under the trellis together, because jerks. Neither of us were romantically involved with our dates, but we were romantically involved with ourselves.
So, what was your prom like? Did you get lucky? Did your date barf on you? Tell all. Be sure to add 46 pictures that have nothing to do with prom first.
