I walked into my Portfolio class yesterday and took out my iPod earbuds only to hear what a giddy high schooler would say this time of year, "I'm so excited to go look at all the prom dresses! I love prom season! OMG they are sooooo pretty!"
My instinct was to turn my iPod back on, but it was too late - it was in my coat pocket already.
How can a girl, my age (a senior in college), be excited for prom season? I've had three classes with her, so I kind of know her personality...but prom dresses? Wow. There is something wrong with the universe if she gets a better job than me.
Later in class, I noticed how rude and blunt this girl is. I'm rude and blunt, but not out loud - only in my head, so that makes it okay, right? I'm rationalizing here. "Ever gone a week without a rationalization?" - The Big Chill. Speaking of that movie, everyone who has a love for movies should see it. I can't stress enough how great this movie is!!! Jeff Goldblum...come on people!! :)
Anyway, prom season? Are you kidding me? She's four years out of college and she's still emotionally connected to prom. I bet that she becomes one of those moms who lives through her children. It's very sad. I should start a 12 step program for moms like that.
