Students, these days, have competitions of how to ask someone to Prom!
My boyfriend spelled it out in spaghetti", you might hear. Or
My cheerleader girlfriend asked me in a cheer"... And then pictures of the "ask" are shared, though social media, texts and online apps.
In thinking about this, I realized that my generation, and those before us, got gypped.
YUP TOTALLY GYPPED!
We just simply said things like...
"Hey, Prom is this weekend, wanna go?" No taking pictures of the "ask"... no sharing with friends and certainly no Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat with bunny ears.
So, because our parents always taught Johnny and I that it's "never too late"...
I thought I'd take this opportunity
to ask you all to Prom! :)
See image above
By now, you've received your formal invitation in the mail, so you've got all the details. Simply call Sheila, by October 17th, if you wanna join us! Teak Catering is catering and they're the best. Check out their menu I've included.
And to make things
SUPER FUN, we're gonna start a little competition of our own ...
Over the next week, ask your "special someone to ABYC Prom" in a unique way and then send me the pictures... I'll post them in the Weekly Reader. Feel free to post and tag them on social media with this hashtag:
I went first, now it's your turn. Let's see who can get really creative. Juniors feel free to "ask your friend or parent" if you wish. Everyone is encouraged to participate!
