Prom Night '07
I originally didn't want to go. Limos, tuxedos & corsages cost lots of money, which I'd rather be saving than spending on useless endeavors like these. But my friends wanted me to come, so I consented (sans date).
The music was basically all hip-hop, rap & techno rap. George Carlin doesn't even curse as much as these songs. Everybody had sore throats by the end of the night because the music was so loud you had to scream to the person next to you.
But we danced, nonetheless. Most of the kids (mostly the girls) were on the dance floor...
We ate, danced & sat from 7 to 11:30, then we all jumped in our limo & split.
Since the prom was announced, we still couldn't find the right place to go afterwards. Southstreet Seaport was closed off... the Nautical Mile in Freeport is like a ghosttown by this hour... we were all too tired to dance at a club... everything seemed to be out of our reach.
So at the last minute (literally when we left the prom), we decided to head over to the one place that never stops for a breather...
By that hour, most stores, restaurants & bars were long shut down for the night (besides a few McDonalds, Starbucks' & nudey bars). Since McDonalds is nasty & the nudey bars were off limits, we went to a Starbucks. The girls got their frothy, caffeinated drinks & we were on the move again.
At this point we were all at wit's end. We had no destination, no energy & absolutely no fun whatsoever. So we decided to go have breakfast at 2 in the morning.
We drove back to our neck of the woods & after finding most of our local diners closed, we finally caught an all-nighter. It was a filthy, disgusting establishment, but it was a diner.
We ordered our grub & chowed down. I asked for silver dollar pancakes, but I got a short stack. I ordered a drink, & the mug wasn't clean. I barely ate, paid the tab & got back home just in time to meet our limo-rent time.
By the time I dragged myself into bed it was 4 a.m. I'm totally drunk with exhaustion & every part of my body has some sort of ache. & the worst part of it was that we all had to wake up early for graduation rehersal. Poor ol' me. I barely have the strength to post here.
So in conclusion I just wanna say that I'm totally fi- (slumps onto keyboard, snores...)
