Because that shit she pulled at the Junior Prom six years ago was un-fucking-believeable! That's right, six years ago! It's been hanging on him for six long horrible years!
It all started innocently enough when LS filled out a roving Facebook questionnaire that contained some random question about "the prom." She just filled it out and thought nothing of it.
She gets a strange email on her Facebook page.
From Alex, the guy that took her to the prom.
And not even the real prom. The Junior Prom.
Like that even fucking counts.
Anyway, she hadn't even talked to him since... well, ... the end of Junior Prom.
Did I mention it was six years ago? And they're 23 now?
Here's the odd exchange:
Reading your note brought to mind something that's puzzled me for a while (Ed Note: Six years!), and you probably explained it at the time, but when you were anxious to split at prom why did you still insist on a couples' portrait? were your folks paying for it?
A) I don't recall being anxious to leave at Junior prom, but then again, I honestly remember hardly anything from that prom.
B) Was the portrait optional even? Doesn't everyone get those? I have no idea who paid for it.
Well, you weren't so much anxious to leave prom as you were to avoid me. You were finding fault with my park job and right after dinner concluded, you kept your distance. That all wouldn't have seemed so strange if when we got in the door you didn't insist on buying a portrait (you paid for it). Not everyone opted for one, and we were a pretty contentious pair.
It makes sense if it seemed necessary. It just confused me at the time.
Do you always spend six years brooding over a girl who was inconsiderate to you when she was 16?
That's an interesting idea. Why, you never asked someone why they did something puzzling? I included the details because you said that you hardly remember anything. Maybe it's weird because we rarely talk.
(Ed Note: They never talk.)
Me: No, no I haven't.
BP: Well, I hope you find an occasion to.
Get out much?
