Moderately risky and life-celebrating for over 40 years
Monday, May 26, 2014
It's that time of year again. I have to say, Prom is quite different when getting a boy ready as opposed to a girl. No hair or nail appointments, not accessory shopping. We go to the tux shop, pick a tux, match the vest and tie to the girl's dress and we're off. Getting dressed, also easier. Basically, I saac and I both got home about 20 minutes before he had to get to his date's house. A quick shower for each of us, thrown on our respective clothes and hey, we even had time to take a few pictures at home. The boy is ever a clown. I'm glad he indulges my photographic drives. So I present a few of the many faces of Isaac.
Do I not make these flowers look extremely manly?
GQ look or wondering what exactly those two birds are doing in the tree over there?
Hiiiiii, I'm yer date.
I quite like his very adorable date. She was lovely but not inclined to take herself too seriously and thus willing to mug ridiculously for the camera with little prompting. This earns points with me.
And then there was the post-photo op, pre-prom ping pong match. Yeah, say that five times real fast. I forget who won but I know she was doing well enough early on that the boy defended his poor showing with, "But I'm in a tux!" We were unsympathetic.
She ain't no pushover, is she? Have I mentioned I like this girl?
They may not have been prom king and queen but they get my vote for the most fun and most adorable couple at the prom.
