What A Day!

I had the honor I suppose of chauffeuring my niece and her date to the prom. Initially I was upset with my niece because I felt that she did not plan her prom correctly. First she asked her boyfriend to take her and he said no. He did not want to attend so she dumped him and asked another boy from another school. Now this is setting her up for a second prom which she’ll need a whole new set of clothing for this, knowing her parents could not afford two proms, one week apart. Then she requested to drive her brothers’ new car and he agreed. That is until he found out that she had to drive across the bridge over the Mississippi River and she just passed the driver’s test one month ago. She never told him she would have to drive through construction 15 minutes away to another city with limited behind the wheel driving. So one week before the prom he changed his mind. Then no one wanted to rent a car for her because she really is not a good driver and only drove once in six months from the time she received her permit to the day she got her license. Family members were worried that she would have an accident and nobody wanted that on their hearts. Three days before prom she was riding with another couple who failed to come through with the limousine that she was going to help pay for. She totally screwed things up. On the day of the prom, she called to say that she did not have an evening purse. This after we (her mom, granny and I) had purchased the prom dress, shoes, graduation dress and shoes & purse, and her graduation pinning ceremony dress and shoes. Mind you this after graduation fees, pictures, and so much more stuff that had to be purchased.

The day of the prom we ran around trying to get her a camera, the evening purse, and she wanted to change her jewelry. I was quite pissed. I agreed to drive her and the date to the prom several days earlier. Her brother would pick them up. Needless to say, everything worked out well. I had the car washed, waxed and cleaned and really worked it for them. They were proud and folks must have really thought I was the hired hand. All I was missing was the Chauffeurs’ cap. My niece and her date sat in the back and as I looked through the rear view mirror I saw the biggest smile on her face. She was happy! Job well done. Hopefully soon I'll get the real pictures. My digital camera was low on charge.

LOL. I am laughing at the fact that even if your niece made plans something would have happened. Prom time is a nervous time. I remember all the things were planned out and still stuff happened.

I am getting nervous because my only child's prom is next year. Geez.

You are a good aunty. I am not sure I would have been doing all that for my niece. I think her backside is too spoiled as it is.

Your niece looks fabulous Rose and she is lucky to have such a kind aunt. I hope she appreciated all the work you all put in to make the night a success for her.

sounds like an adventure. don't you just love prom? and graduation? in young adults that need you to plan and coordinate everything?

I love this time of the year for the kids. Well not that my pocket loves it but to see young people in the prime of their little lives makes me totally nostalgic. Good job auntie Rose. You know one day she is going to look back on this time in her life and she will think of you with much love and gratitude.

Teman saya pernah terkena kutil kelamin di sekitar bibir vaginanya, sangat mengerikan. di sekitar vagina tersebut di tumbuhi daging kaya kutil dan itu banyak sekali pokoknya menakutkan sekali. Tapi setelah minum obat Penyakit kutil kelamin wanita dari herbal, dalam waktu 2 hari sudah kering. Mantap banget virus HPV ini sehingga nanti kedepannya khsusunya untuk kaum pria dapat menjaga diri agar terhindar dari penyakit ini obat alternatif herbal paling manjur
