Sunday Funnies 2012.04.29

Our son went to his first high school prom last night. Tux, corsage, limo ... the whole works. He even spent the night at his date's house (along with several other couples, all under the watchful eye of her parents.) But we had to explain a few things to him before he went.

First, tinting the windows of his mother's minivan doesn't make it a limo.

Second, we live in the country, so there are a few rednecks in his school. Consequently, the prom has child care facilities.

Finally, when he told me how much he was spending on renting his tux, hiring a limo, and buying his date's corsage, I was flabbergasted. I told him "That's more than I spent on the wedding when your mother and I got married."

His reply: "Yeah, but you've been married three times. A prom is a once in a lifetime experience."

Please tell me you were joking about child care at prom.

CenTexTim said...

Yes, I was joking. And the picture is not of my son and his date.

LOL, yeah things ARE a tad different than back in our day... We had enough guns in trucks and cars to not worry about putting em in any pictures... They were tools! :-)

CenTexTim said...

NFO - I hardly see gun racks in pickups anymore, much less guns. I know I don't display mine for fear of theft.

But you're right. They used to be considered tools, and they used to be safe inside a truck

I'm glad you already answered the question about the couple in the pic. I just about shat myself when I saw that and was going to ask you about it. LMAO!

CD - Our kid posed with an AR-15 and his date was packing a M1911... :-)

Speaking of High School proms.... if you can find this old book by Jean Shepherd (deceased male) give it a read.

Title: "Wanda Hickey's night of Golden memories".

If you 50+ you'll laugh your ass off.

If you're under 50 you'll laugh but your ass will remain attached.

Toejam - I just ordered the Wanda hickey book from Amazon (used books). I'll let you know how I like it.
