Who remembers last fall when Bossy caught her son flirting with the cute girl standing behind him? Well, Bossy and her family have known this girl for a dozen years, but it wasn’t until sixth grade that she really caught the family’s attention:
Sixth grade was the year she was cast in the lead role of the Middle School’s production of Annie. She wasn’t just good, and she wasn’t just terrific. Other adjectives that don’t measure up: fantastic and superior. She was engaging, hilarious, and sweet, and when she performed, the audience was rapt:
Especially if that audience contained Bossy’s daughter, who took one look at this girl performing Annie and decided she wanted to be just like her, right down to the microphone and stage:
But this post isn’t about Bossy’s daughter, it’s about Bossy’s son and his senior prom date who played Annie a half dozen years ago:
Bossy’s son and his date met a pack of their friends before the prom in order to snap the usual pre-prom photos:
And this is when Bossy’s son dipped his date:
And this is when Bossy’s son… actually Bossy doesn’t know what Bossy’s son is up to, and it’s probably a lucky thing:
And this is the part of the prom where Bossy’s son and his date got married and had two children:
And then Bossy’s son and his date disappeared into the night:
And speaking of proms and high school graduates, this is Bossy when she graduated from high school:
Bossy was all about the eyeliner. Other things Bossy was all about: her thirty-year-old musician boyfriend. And so Bossy didn’t go to her senior prom because she thought it was silly—and also because her thirty-year-old boyfriend had a gig that night.
So instead, Bossy went to her best friend Tracy’s house and helped her get ready for the prom. This is Tracy:
Bossy lived the senior prom vicariously through Tracy. She was there when Tracy applied her makeup, and she was there when Tracy stood in the front yard of her row house while a million relatives snapped photos.
Today Bossy would like to live the senior prom vicariously through you. In exactly ten words, can you describe the essence of your prom night?
