In my Countdown To Feb 12th, I’ve been showing a lot of embarrassing photos on Twitter. And what could be more embarrassing than a collection of all my dance photos from high school? (I think there are two dances missing from this collection. Not sure where those photos are.)
Morp my junior year. Yes, I went in shorts.
Sadie Hawkins my junior year. For this dance, no one was paired off: it was a group of five girls who asked a group of five guys. Kind of weird.
Junior prom my junior year. My favorite part of this photo: look how THRILLED my date is to be in this picture.
Homecoming my senior year. True story: my date was in a car crash on the way to respond to my invitation, and she hasn’t driven a car since.
Homecoming my senior year. May I point out I’m the only one in a tux. May I also point out my tie and cummerbund are METALLIC PINK.
Christmas Dance, senior year. Again: a stylish tux.
Christmas dance, senior year. This is notable for being the Three Amigos: these were the guys I hung out with all senior year, and even worked with (at a crappy bakery job).
Junior Prom, senior year. This one is a weird one. I asked out this girl who I hardly knew who didn’t even go to our school or live in our city. She must have thought it was very odd. But I liked her.
Junior Prom, senior year. In case the photo’s not clear, we’re all checking our appearance in a compact.
Senior prom, senior year. May I just say: look at that stylish outfit. (This dance was supposed to be centennial based, because it was the 100 year anniversary of Utah becoming a state. But I think I was the only one who took it seriously.) (I was also the only one who worked at a theater and had access to a lot of costumes.)
Senior Prom, senior year. I don’t know how I ended up in this group; I don’t know half the people. Still: awesome suit.
