Oooh, harsh! I ended up going to the prom with my best girlfriend at the time, whose own prom was the week before so – and here is the key element – she already had a dress. I mean, my god, my hair was already done, and my mother was not about to let me waste a perfectly good $25 hairdo, you know? We ended up having a great time, and as an added bonus I didn’t have to put out, so there’s always that.
You know: “When life gives you limes, make margaritas” and all that rot.
