Generational warfare aside, with Prom Night being the No. 1 film at the box office, the big night seems to be on the brain this week. And, as such, Bravesfan459 (hey! I’m a Braves fan, too) suggested, for this week’s comment diversion, an open thread about our own best and worst prom experiences, basically because that’s just the sort of topic likely to provoke a decent story or two from you good people. So, give up the goods, folks. And those of you in Canada, England, Australia and elsewhere who didn’t have proms, well: Surely you have the equivalent, right?

As for me: I have zero good prom experiences to speak of. At my senior prom, I got a flat tire, engaged in a food fight over dinner, fought with my date the entire night, and ultimately got tossed from a hotel room for over-occupancy at five in the morning (we were watching Leprechaun 2, as I recall). My date dumped me a few weeks later (but I got the last laugh, when I dumped her ass six years later, though she did get all the furniture. Damnit). My second experience, sadly, was even worse: I was one of those college freshman who got cajoled back to a friend’s prom, and not wanting to be that guy, I actually hid in the bathroom most of the night with the other four or five college students who didn’t want to be seen at a high school prom.

Neither prom experience ended the God intended them to end, either. Damn it. :(

How Bad Did Your Prom Suck?
