Looking through her pictures allowed me to reflect on my senior prom. I didn’t have a date. No surprise there (haha?). But I wore a Lilly dress which made the night that much better!!!
Sadly, looking back on my dances, I feel like I really missed out. I was never one for dancing. In fact, I never danced EVER. I hated the dancing part. Really, I only liked getting ready and buying the dress, and makeup/hair/nails.
I’ve hated dances since sixth grade when the middle school would host “after school” dances. Waiting for a boy to ask you out for a “slow” dance was miserable. And there was always girl who would be melodramatic and cry by the bleachers when the wrong boy asked her dance. I wanted to slap her and tell her to be grateful someone even asked her.
Looking back, I realize how much fun I missed by sitting out and not dancing. I think the saddest part is that I rarely dance at parties now. I’m thinking I may need to adjust my no-dancing rule.
