Looking for humor today, so what better topic to strike up for some laughs at a site full of gaming geeks than the PROM. I'm not talking about hearing about the sock hop or some weird SCA festival, the real deal, PROM. If most of you are more like the geek I was back then, there probably isn't a lot to talk about because you probably were like me and didn't go. So let's hear those tales of victory and defeat without any shame. Did you even try? What's your story? What was the theme? How much did you blow? (money of course) My tale will be quick. I asked one girl senior year. She was so way out of my league any hope of success was pure fantasy. Thank god we didn't do the grand gesture asks that are so common these days. But to this day, I'll give that glorious beauty credit. She could have easily crushed me like a grape by laughing in my face, but she didn't. With a endearing smile on her face she told me that I was too late and she had already accepted another invitation but thanked me anyway. While I was crushed by the rejection, I still fondly remember her not being cruel about it. So who did better, and don't be afraid to say you did worse.
