The Lady in Red

Last Friday night Ichabod and I decided to go out to dinner. Living downtown gives us quite a few choices. We chose one that was a little bit of a hike, but they have the BEST rosemary chicken dinner in town.

It was early and there weren't many patrons in yet. It seemed odd that they put us at a small table when it looked so slow. I didn't realize that they had most of the tables put together to make three long tables.

Just before our meal arrived all these teenagers starting coming in. I took a look at their formal dress and realized that one of the local schools must be having prom night. Our service level dropped right after that. I've waited tables so I understood why. The waitstaff was running its collective ass off!

It was kinda fun watching the kids. The girls kept rearranging their wrist corsages, so cute. But the funniest part was that in the midst of the pastel and white dresses there was one that caught my eye. This girl was wearing a red, spangled dress. She really stood out in that crowd. Made me wonder about her personality and what she'll be doing with the rest of her life. She won't be the ordinary one in the crowd.

I hope so, if that's what she was looking for.

A provocative observation...now I'm wondering about her, too.

I'll bet, that in this day, your lady in red was the one who didn't get laid.

Summer, too bad we'll never know.

But Courtney may be right. I guess that kinda dress doesn't mean anything anymore. :-)

The funniest prom-night scene I ever saw (except for when I went to prom with my soon-to-be-gay boyfriend) was last spring. Jim and I were havin' dinner in Hooters, and four prom couples walked in, full prom regalia flyin', to have their before-prom dinner.

Ooh, boys, don't spare any expense for your date, now.

OMG - Hooters??? That's got me LOL, definitely out loud. I bet they looked a little out of place there. I hope those girls didn't end up marrying those guys. :-)

"The Lady in Red" is a Bucky wannabe!

My prom dress was sooooo bad. I looked like a bridesmaid in a wedding where the floral arrangement consisted of pink and white carnations. (Not that I don't like carnations.)

Maybe that's the reason I can no longer stand pink...

Forget the lady in red! You've got me paranoid what people were thinking about me when I got to the gas station and was pumping my can while wearing holy jeans. They had no idea I was about to go home and not mow my grass. Eeek.

Something doesn't sound right, does it? !

There's just something "not right" about you, Mr. B.
But that why we lurves you.

Oh she will be a stripper for sure. Red dress= stripper. Totally. hah.

Sierrabella - So sorry about the bridesmaid-like dress. I never went to the prom. I wondered if I'd be sorry, but no, never felt bad about missing it.

Mr B - Are those holey jeans or holy jeans. There's been some confusion this last week over who the Pope is. I don't need any more confusion along these lines.

Bucky, of course that's why we love Mr B. We really, really do.

Jess, you'd know, honey, you'd know. I appreciate your professional here, too.

Squirl, I never went to prom, either. Lucky girl, I yam, I yam...

Never go to the prom. That's my new motto. I will tell all young not to go to the prom.

Well, and if they do go to prom, bring two dates just in case one leaves them :-).

I didnt go to prom, but I wore red all the time, and still do. Its wicked you know.

GIrls in pink are naughty too, or girls in plaid who steal smokes from people and then run around posting one armed poo pics. You really cant trust those girls.

Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

Hey, plaid is rad, babe.
Damn, though, I just can't fit into that dress anymore. Nor the red tights.

But I'll still steal your smokes and post poo pictures when nobody's lookin'.

For those of you who didn't prom-it-up, be happy there's no photographic evidence of your formal fashion choices.

Like the fact you wore a dress that had a doily stapled to the front.

Damn you, Kodak!

Blogger Squirl said...

Plum - a doily. Oh, that has got to be a classic!

Jess - So pink is just another version of red? And Bucky's red tights qualify too? I love your insight.

Bucky - I hope you don't fit into that dress anymore. And watch those poo pictures.

Tue Apr 26, 12:05:00 PM  
Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

A doily, Plum?

And where, oh where would these pictures be posted where we could see and laugh, er, sympathize?

Tue Apr 26, 06:21:00 PM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Yeah, like Bucky said, Plum, where are the pictures?

Tue Apr 26, 06:38:00 PM  
Blogger Spurious Plum said...

Fine. I posted a picture of the doily dress:


God help me.

God help us all, Plum.

Thanks, Plum. That dress doesn't look that bad. That really pissed off look on your face really says it all about how your prom night probably went. Hope it wasn't really that bad.

Didn't hate the prom. Just my date...

Plum - I'm glad the night wasn't a total waste then. Remember: sink worms.
