Old Prom Photos

I happened on a site filled with old prom photos. Slightly yellowed & Polaroid-garish. The boys all looked a little shell-shocked & the girls (mostly) all had the look of female praying mantises. Especially if you can imagine a praying mantis in polyester sateen & big puffy sleeves.

I admit I may have some bias here, since I was in the male role & I was so scared of my first prom date that afterwards I never gave her a copy of our pictures & I never really talked to her again. FOR THE ENTIRE TWO YEARS BEFORE WE MOVED. (OK, so maybe this IS a view through anxiety-tinted glasses...)
