It's a little blurry, I took this with my cell phone and you might be able to make out what it says if you look closely. This actually happened a few weeks ago, before whatever bacterial alien virus invaded my body and rendered me incapable of speaking without offering up a lung. (Hmmm, perhaps a decidedly suspect alien organ donation program?) Anyway I digress...
I was in downtown Seattle going to an appointment and had parked at Pacific Place. While walking through the mall, there were about twenty very excited kids with signs chattering in the hallway and I could not figure out why. In a hurry, I shrugged and went on my way. Well on my way back to my car after my appointment I witnessed what the fuss was all about, and it was adorable! They had all been practicing placing and holding their signs just so, in order that a shy young man could ask his choice to go to prom with him, and it came complete with tears, flowers and a yes!
Oh and the applause of all of us that witnessed it...the whole thing was very charming and people all over the mall like me were smiling and taking photos of people we did not know, it was that infectious*. Well done kids!
*not Infectious like I was before antibiotics, infectious like: spreading or capable of spreading rapidly to others <their enthusiam was> -Websters.
Well how about this: The reason why this post is called Full Disclosure is that I never went to prom in High School, and shockingly enough (!) survived to tell the tale.
This alien organ donation program is something else entirely...
