This is Chloe speaking. Originally my father would have written about my prom experience, BUT to avoid inaccuracies, we decided it would be better if I just told you. Yes, as much as I tease my father about his blogging,
I was asked to Mountain View High School's prom, the theme being "Forever Young" and before you ask, YES, we did dance to the classic Alphaville song. My FANTASTIC date was David, who I met a while back at a stake dance, and long story short - we just stayed good friends. Here in good old Utah, when you ask someone to a dance you ask in a creative way. I happened to be asked with a tiki torch in my front yard, and attached was a note addressed to an "8 cow woman" asking if I would be willing to go to prom with David (if the cows don't make sense... go here). I responded with writing my entire reply in Tongan on a surfboard and delivering it to his home, I still believe he has no clue what it said but just assumed it was a "yes."
At around noon-ish on Saturday the boys picked us up for a day date to Boondocks (it's like a game center, click here to see it). Our group was huge and consisted of close to a billion couples. I apologize for the traffic we must have caused on the freeway getting there, all of us in our high school junkers and mini vans. Anyways, the date was soooooo much fun. It consisted of lazer tag (multiple times actually - even against a team of 8 year olds... no worries... we won), arcade games, go-carts and bumper boats. The last of these resulted in me coming home soaking wet (they are like bumper cars, but in the water and they shoot water as well), and no, our dates showed no mercy to the girls (not like we were really fair either).
After coming home, one my most favorite women in the whole world, Marisa, came and did make-up and hair. I think I set the record for the quickest getting ready of any girl in the history of getting ready for prom. It took about an hour. Ta da!
Then came David, and now I shall brag about myself. I successfully pinned on the boutonniere without any blood or injury. And then we were off to prom! My father managed to get a couple pictures before I ran out the door. Here are some (boutonniere pinnage and then some).
After we left the house, we enjoyed a wonderful Hawaiian dinner, complete with luau music and paper umbrellas. Not to mention, the food was DELICIOUS. I was thoroughly happy! Following dinner was one big party, and dancing until midnight. To be perfectly honest, David and I were the life of the party, and I don't think our group ever stopped dancing... ever. By the end of the night, we were pretty wasted, but it was SO worth it. I had a GREAT prom!
Well, I'm tired of writing. If you REALLY want any more details... you could... call me?
PS - I thought it was pretty funny that the most said sentence and running joke of the night was, "You're stepping on my dress! Again!" Ok really, that's all. Bye!
