This week’s Friday Flashback was “Prom memories: what did you do (or not do) on prom night?”
Mr. Flinger would say. “I did not get laid.”
I would say, “Gossiped with friends and danced with a boy with a hardon.”
My Mom would say, “Such good kids, those two. Never worried about them having sex and getting pregnant because I raised a good little Catholic Girl.”
My friends would say, “Smoked pot and gossiped about how much we wanted to get laid.”
Because we all know Prom is about getting laid and not the over priced dresses and stinky corsages.
God I hope my daughter is too cool for prom. I don’t need to read about how much she wanted to get laid on her blog twenty years from now.
*Yes, I went to two Proms and two Winter Balls with Mr. Flinger. Yes we were high school sweethearts. Yes we broke up shortly after High School. Yes, he did get laid. Eventually. Yes, we got married, made babies and yes, we still talk about how much we want to get laid now. It’s the circle of life. Or Karma. Or a cruel cruel joke. Or whatever else you want to call it.

Let’s just say I didn’t get too Busy that night. Unless you count post-prom bowling as busy.

You two are adorable. I wish I could find my prom photo. You would appreciate the big hair and enormous, green, poof, 80s sleeves. I went to an all girls Catholic high school, so I only had one prom. And I didn’t not think about getting laid either

You guys look awesome! Sad to say, I got laid years before my prom. By prom time, sex was such a not a big deal. Hmmm…maybe that explains a few things now!!!
