All right, here's why I hate the idea of Senior ball.
Reason #1: I hated proms in high school. The reason I hated them did include the company I was in, but I consider that besides the point, as there are other sides to this issue. The dresses, the shoes, the making of hair and make-up. Bah. People trying to look pretty. How I hate it. I hate formals. I hate it all.
Reason #2: Consumerism. Cost of ticket: $55. Add to that the cost of the dress, the shoes, the alcohol and the room at the hotel. Do I look like I have cash coming out from between my bedsheets?
There are other reasons, but I can't think, as I have to work on my theory paper. But people are talking about it a lot. I think Scott wants to go. And I'm not just that hyped about it. Just kind of depressing.
