|Beware the Dog|
|2003-05-27 || Back to the Grind Stone, but Barely There|
I hope that everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend.� I did.� I am not even ready for it to be over.� The weather is gorgeous and I had a great time hiking this weekend at mine, and the boyfriend�s alma mater.� I love the school because it is so gorgeous!� Plus, I can�t wait to play outside tonight.� The park is calling to me.
A week or so ago the boyfriend and I went to Maggiano�s for take-out.� The have hella� chicken parm and this great cheesy and tomato-y ravioli.� Not the best for my diet but I am a firm believer that everyone has to take the time (and the greasy, fried fatness) to have a good time.� The joint is always jumping but when we pulled up this time it was like limo-extravaganza� - there were three limos and a billion teenagers in their party clothes all over the place.� After circling the lot slowly and ignoring the boyfriends swears and curses, I jumped out to grab the food while he kept the car rolling for get-away.� I had forgotten about prom-time.
Truth is that I never really made it to my prom.� I dressed up and my date and I met friends and went to eat and went to a party at Lake Lanier.� But I can�t dance.� At all.� And I got so freaked out thinking about a re-hash of my Bat Mitzvah.� My boyfriend never went to prom.� He was shy in high school.�
I just don�t get it.� I do still have my prom dress that I bought at a secondhand store and never ever wore again.� There is a bow on the back of that dress that puts Zsa Zsa to shame.� Gaudy and silly, I don�t remember anyone buying thousand dollar gowns or wearing sexy Brittany clothes.� But now, it�s a totally different story.� Those chicks were sparkling and glammy � They were definitely more Frederick�s than Delia�s.� And a few weeks ago, I was in BCBG and there was a girl buying a gorgeous and very adult red sleeveless dress for prom.� I do have a red sleeveless dress, but I have never had the balls to wear it out of the bedroom.� And I definitely wouldn�t have had 16 or 17 or 18!
I really don�t get it.
*** Not on the subject � but a safety tip.� Watch for this guy!
