A "Bad Prom Pictures" contest made me wonder, do I have any?

Answer: no. I was smart enough to make my parents leave before the guy arrived. No group photo, thank you very much.

And when he did arrive (Joe Roach, twenty-something radical dude), it was in his grandfather's light blue Cadillac, with mini bottles of vodka littering the floor (he told me he was nervous on the drive up to get me).

Here are 2 pix my mama took before I made her leave:
