It’s happening tonight. Sam’s first prom. Crazy as it sounds, Alex is going too although she is only a sophomore. So that meant we had to buy clothes and shoes for both girls.
No, Sam isn’t going in blue jeans. She drove me crazy taking so much time in choosing what to wear. By her standards, everything was either pang-matrona (matronly) or pang-pokpok (slutty). She finally settled on a beige Debenham’s top with mother-of-pearl button trimmings. The price was insane but the mall was about to close and what choice did I really have? Turned out that the item was on sale and, at 60% off, I could only sigh with relief.
Alex chose an Oleg Cassini top in red and a black Criselda Lontok Fernandez bottom.
I could go to the prom too (I can as a faculty member) but Sam isn’t so cool about it. On second thought, I really wouldn’t want to cramp their style. So, Speedy and I talked about donning all-black attires tonight, paint our faces with black make-up, crawl on our bellies towards the clubhouse where the prom will be held and take photos with telephoto lenses. Just a thought, you know. :razz:
