It is day 13 of the Back Where I Come From Challenge by Suzanne McClendon. This is one of those challenges that make you think, remember, and sometimes work through personal issues that we would rather stuff down far inside of us. It is interesting and sometimes cathartic. Join us. You can easily catch up.
Day 13: What color were the eyes of your first date?
Would you believe….I have absolutely NO idea?
My first date was as a junior in high school and it was a “group date” to the Senior class prom.
I had to sneak out of the house (not so easy to do in a borrowed prom dress) as I wasn’t “allowed” to date.
I remember all the kids that piled into Richard Alexander’s parent’s car…I can remember the color of the tuxedos and dresses…I even remember the crazy bouffant hairstyles of the girls.
But, I don’t remember who my date was or the color of his eyes.
My date was either Mark R. or David T……both of whom were people I barely knew.
I wasn’t supposed to even go to this prom as I was a junior, but one of those two had no date at all and my best friend Cynthia Nuckles talked me into going with…well, whichever one of those guys it was.
I remember dancing half the night with several people, none of whom were my “date”.
I have a rather funny suspicion I was someone’s “beard”.
