And aren't the young ladies lovely with their new nails and hairdos and new 'gowns', most of which show most of their breasts and thier thong outlines?

I would guess that when you were a wee little lad of that age, that sort of thing would not have bothered you. So the standards have changed somewhat over the years... that's life.

Personally, I would prefer seeing what you describe over what I normally see as I go about my daily activities... rolls of lard spilling over jean waists, with a shirt too short to "contain" things. Ugh...!

Put a lid on it Squid Boy. Your last paragraph has nothing to do with the proms. You have some of the most stupid comments.

Granted, you're entitled to your opinion.

But hold on... you didn't really give one other than to trash another's. Do you have any thoughts unique to yourself?

Why be an azz ? Prom night is an important event for kids about to become adults.

Let them enjoy it.

I doubt the kids were seeking anyone's approval other than possibly their dates'.

I am sure more than a few of them will 'become adults' on prom night.

Always very pleased with the dresses my girls chose and their dates too for that matter. After five straight proms though, we get a break this year from all the pre-primp stressers. Even though I enjoy the end result nearly as much as they do I can admit to being ready to sit back and watch others go through this. I'll be back to it again soon enough.

Just be sure her thong matches her push-up bra and her wrist bouquet.

Did you fritter away your youth ?

Let your body go to mush ?

You have a lof of anger toward the younger generation.

This is my only daughter's Senior Prom and the dress she chose is elegant, appropriate and beautiful. I cried when she walked out of the dressing room but almost had a heart attack when I saw the bill. LOL She has worked very hard to get here and will graduate in June. She deserves to be pampered a little (maybe a lot) and I am enjoying the experience almost as much as she is.

Congrats on having a year off - after five proms you definitely deserve it.

As it should be. Good for you both. Wish her the very best for me too please. ;) I know the end of her Senior year will be bittersweet for you as well. Wasn't it only Yesterday?*Sniffles* and smiles too!

Thank you and I will wish her the best for you. It is bittersweet - sometimes I really miss my "little girl" but she is smart young lady now and that is good too.

You are incorrect in your assessment.

I adore and love children. there is no anger toward THEM.

I ABHOR their parents and other adults that insist on dressing them up like little trollops and offering them up to the world in that condition.

The parents BUY thoses revealing dresses- and then blame the date (or whatever man is involved) if the girl gets 'taken advantage of'.

These girls are BEAUTIFUL but most are dressed inappropriately for a public function. Their breasts are showing, their 'dresses' are very clingy and provocative, and in most cases it is apparent they have on no underwear. In that attire, they are sending out the message that their body is available.

And as I said before- THE PARENTS BOUGHT THE DRESSES.

Wake up, people!

What in the hell is the matter with YOU?
For crying out loud!! This is an evening that they will remember forever and is supposed to be magical. It is fools like you that like to rain on anything----and another thing---they are NOT children, they are young adults. Gad, but you are such a putz sometimes.

Underwear? Who spends money on that useless stuff? I always thought it was optional.
