Superhero Sunday: Promtastic edition

On the eve of the twenty-eighth anniversary of my junior prom...
Invitation may or may not have been used as a napkin.
Ahead of my time with the "Who wore it better" game? son was set to attend his junior prom.
All offers to obtain a mask were declined in case you were wondering.
I swear he was just a little boy a few minutes ago.
We had read the rules regarding the dress code...
...and I anxiously waited to see if his date chose a dress or a pantsuit.  (Since she was not in fact Hilary Clinton, she arrived in a dress.)

I had no idea if there was going to be a huge call to arms to help enforce the rules. 
Superheroes are surely well versed in manners and etiquette. Plus, getting teens off of each other's shoulders could prove difficult, so I had prepared ahead of time...
What could make a group of teenagers behave better than the risk of a disapproving face and finger point from PEDOMEPROM?
I even dug out a cape more suitable for evening wear, but my help was not needed.
Please note: No teenagers were harmed or humiliated in the taking of these photos. Oh, and he had an incredible time!


  1. You still fit into your prom gown?!?!?!?! There aren't many women that can say that (I didn't go to my proms). Although....I don't mean to brag, but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school. ;)

  2. I can't believe you fit into it either. Forget that you still have it .

    1. Whoops! Full disclosure? That cape, in addition to being super, is actually hiding quite a gap where the back of my dress should have zipped!!!!! ;)

  3. I had the most gorgeous dress for the junior prom. I did not go to my senior prom. I did, however, go to the prom this year. I wore a pantsuit.

  4. Wow. You still fit into your prom gown. Awesome!!!

  5. Hahaha! That picture of you in your dress, plus the cape is hysterical! Proms are kinda new over here but if I had a dress, I probably wouldn't get it past my thighs now. So kudos to you for still being able to fit into yours, gap, or no gap. And DAMN! How cute were you back in the days!!

  6. I just want to know if every girl adhered to the requirement of "dresses must be mid-thigh in length." Did they measure? If it hit the knee or was floor length, did they get kicked out? Quite a saucy little rule, if you ask me.

    And you were adorable in that dress. Then AND now. Rocking a bit more cleavage in present day form as well! Quite the fancy cape as well.

  7. So much so much so much to comment on. First, I would've totally worn a pantsuit. had a marvelous sense of humor in HIGH SCHOOL??? still fit into your dress?? Bitch. Fourth: You still HAVE your dress? Hoarder. Son looks so handsome! Awesomely funny post.

  8. Priceless. Just priceless. I think you followed the dress code very well. After all, Edna didn't say, "NO CAPES!" ;-)

  9. That boy has a wicked good stare.


  10. I cannot believe that you still fit into your prom dress! Color me jealous--even though my prom dress went to Goodwill years ago. Were you near tears as your son went off to his prom? I am sure that I will be a hot mess.

    A good cape goes with everything.

  11. Well congrats on still fitting in the dress!

  12. Do they even make pant suits anymore? Shit I can't even wear pants because I'm 90 feet tall and they look like high waters. Pffff, a term from our youth.

  13. There is no way I could fit in my prom dress because now I have boobs.

    LOVE this post! Pantsuits? *really* ?????

  14. What Marianne said. Bitch. Hilarious!!!
