Some things are just more fun in a dress.



Kickball Prom = best idea ever. We had quite a few gawkers as we took the field dressed in our fancy garb. I wore a bridesmaid dress, others donned outfits from high school dances, thrift stores or the depths of their closests. The look was completed with cleats, tennis shoes, sports bras and spandex. Maybe kickball should always be played like this.

It got me thinking about other activities that could be spiced up with ironic formal attire. They need to be minimally physical, fairly public and work well with groups. Grocery shopping. Bowling. BBQing. Bookclub Prom? Maybe in the spring.

I heard stuff like this is just a chance for nerds to live out their lifelong dream of a better prom. You see, this time the night might not end with your date playing video games while you and his best friend’s date gaze awkwardly at the basement carpet talking about how great the punch was.

Not me though. I went to prom like a dozen times, each one more amazing than the last.

Did you actually play in these dresses? Because that sounds messy.

Yeah we did play in the dresses; it wasn't so bad. Running was a little awkward, but that was it.

And I would welcome any post-dance ending in video games. Tetris tourney. Wii bowling. Good ideas for next prom...
