So The Boy had his High School Senior Prom this week. His date, "R" looked great but (in my opinion) is way too good for him. He informed the Mrs and I the day before that 3 other couples and a limo were showing up at our house for pictures. Here are a couple of the pictures.
I may have some pictures of the other couples at a later date.
As for the Prom, The Boy and R were going as "friends" although they briefly "dated" about 6 months ago. His main squeeze "L" was going to the Prom with another guy who, according to The Boy, is "gay" (why is everything in quotes?). I'm not exactly sure what transpired (and will maybe provide an after action report later when I do find out) but The Boy and L are through, done...she's not coming around anymore. L was too good for him too (she is going to a reputable university to study medicine). And I'm not sure what R's status is as of this writing. Oh to be a stupid teenager again.
The Boy gets home from the Prom at around 11:30PM and comes into our bedroom to let us know (actually the Mrs because he knows I don't care) that he's home and packing to go to the shore. It's a long time New Jersey tradition to go to the shore after the Prom. I did it 32 years ago.
Here's the kicker. He's taking his buddy "M" with him to the shore (it's about 75 minute ride) and when the Boy comes in to our room to talk to the Mrs, his buddy M comes in the room too! Is it me or am I right to be upset by this? The Mrs shook it off as boys just not knowing any better. There is no way I would have ever done that at his (or any other) age.
In any event, The Boy is down the shore for a couple of days, which means peace and quiet for me and The Pudge.
