And so the story begins: I had been dating this one boy since my sophomore year and we decided to go to our senior prom. My friends and I had planned this huge dinner together, making it a triple date. The dress: what every girl looks forward to. The best part about shopping: the $9.97 dress I found at JC Penney.
He decided that he wanted an all white suit and of course, me in my red nine dollar dress. In the end neither of my friends showed up, so the two of us had dinner in Chico at a Chinese restaurant; you can never go wrong with Chinese food. The actual dance was okay, almost what a normal school dance would be only fancier. We left Prom because he wanted to go to a house party and as soon as we got there I decided house parties were not for me. The night ended with a chicken sandwich from Jack in the Box.
The big surprise came weeks later when I found out that he had been cheating on me with another girl--apparently "my friend." As part of my revenge I took our Prom picture, tore them apart and destroyed the evidence, or so I thought. Days later my mom found a piece of one of the pictures I had torn and she told me "hey your ex-boyfriend's feet were just lying around." And so maybe that is why I do not have such a vivid memory of my 2004 Senior Prom at CUHS.
