What happens at Prom? Prom is a once in a lifetime school event that should be full of pomp and pageantry. Usually the best boy will get a limousine, other male students (including the date, his best buddy, his brother, or his best friend’s son) will provide him with advice and tips on how to impress the girl, his date, and his parents. There might be a “joke” involving the two of them where the one asking the question gets to dance. Some proms have been known to include such things as indoor karaoke and live entertainment. Other proms might just have the girls perform silly, sexy routines or act out some dramatic scenes.
Pookie is an old, stand-by for female Halloween called upon by some folks at Halloween parties in my hometown. The biggy comes in many shapes and sizes, but I think the pookie costume has stayed pretty much the same over the years. Usually a biggy is puffy white or dark colored and worn with a skirt. Sometimes a pookie might have a fairy or other playful animal on her sleeve or a tiara.
What happens at Prom depends on what happens in the rest of the evening. If there are other prom guests, other parents, or other personnel at the party, then the actual Prom may last a lot longer. The biggy and pookie will likely be involved for quite a while, especially if there are both teenagers. As the biggy and pookie dances around the room and the band starts, everyone will want to join in and this can take some getting used to.
The next time you hear the phrase, “It’s the Prom,” stop and think about what your friend, your brother, or your parent did at their prom night. What happened? Did they go out to a nice dinner or to a club and dress the way they wanted to? Did they buy a new dress or rent one from the thrift store? Most likely they didn’t do anything at all, but that doesn’t mean that they couldn’t have done something different. At some point during the evening, they decided that a tuxedo was necessary and a top hat and bow tie were also needed.
Maybe your friend or your brother or your high school students decided to rent or borrow one of the limousines that are so popular at weddings these days. Even though it’s a formal event, they might have still felt the need to wear something special. That’s the great thing about high school. We are allowed to let our hair down for once in a while.
What happens at Prom, if any, is really dependent upon the personality of those who participate. Some people will do their best to incorporate a little fun and color into their prom theme. Some of them will choose gowns that are a bit more form fitting. Others will choose elaborate dresses that they can wear with a tuxedo or a bow tie, but even then there are some boundaries set for what’s acceptable. It’s not uncommon for parents to break those rules at some point in time, but usually only when the child has demonstrated his or her ability to behave.
The question of what happens at proms sometimes gets asked by teens who are in some sort of drug abuse program, in other words, a rehabilitation facility. When teens come in to deal with their problems, what happens at prom can be very difficult for them to handle. For example, if they are doing drugs, they may feel like their only social outlet is going to be at the prom. Since most of these teens would have drank alcohol or done drugs already, this can lead to problems where they try to make their way to the dance floor or they get too drunk to stand up.
What happens at prom might also be a problem for some teens who don’t want to dress like everyone else at their prom. They may want to go out in ” rebellion” and choose to wear something that is unique and out of the ordinary. Many teenagers who are looking for uniqueness in their fashion choices often choose to wear unique clothing that is not common in their peer group. Some of these choices include denim shirt and denim jeans paired with a plaid skirt. These are just some examples of what happens at prom dresses, because they are among the many that you see and hear about.
