Things have changed since 1986 when I went to my high school prom. Dresses are shorter, heels are higher, and apparently it is now all the rage to execute a creative way to ask your date to go.
These are some of the ways Bella’s friends have been asked to prom:
Her bedroom is filled with pink balloons and five red helium balloons float above, spelling the question, PROM? (He likes her a lot.)
He uses car wax to write PROM? on the hood of her car (He likes her less.)
He ties a little note to the collar of a chihuahua puppy (prom?) and leaves it outside the front entrance of school and texts her to come out and meet him. She comes out and only sees the puppy. (This really happened!)
They write a song and play and sing it in front of their classmates – this culminates in the presentation of roses to their prospective dates. (This is how Bella and her friend were asked.)
Very sweet. These teenagers have a lot of energy – I’m glad it’s being channeled in fun and creative ways.
