Ah prom! A time-honored rite of passage into being an adult!
Now a days prom has turned into an anything goes bash where kids are blowing enormous amounts of their parent’s money, showing off and trying to live up to unreal expectations.
Kids don’t ask one another to prom, we now have the prom-proposals where young men are expected to provide outrageous showings to prove that they are the best choice for a date. It’s a lot of one-upping and male posturing going on. Girls expect boys to deliver outlandish prom ‘asks’ that range from standing up on the lunch room table with a bull horn to poster boards and flowers and other outrageous gifts all in the hopes that the person being asked won’t say no. All of it recorded for a quick upload to YouTube.
But no pressure
Lets talk about pressure for a moment.
