Wayback Wedensday: Ed’s Big Date

Junior prom, May 1988.
Junior prom, May 1988.

It’s prom season, so what better time to share one of my favorite pictures, which was taken before my junior prom. Back in the day, we called this photo “Ed’s Big Date,” though we did not all actually go to the prom with Ed. Erin (center) was Ed’s actual date, but both Dana (right) and I had dates of our own. Given the amount of time we all spent together, however, I don’t doubt he probably felt he was dating all three of us every now and then.

If my math – and picture labeling – are correct, this was taken 24 years ago this upcoming weekend. Oof. How is that even possible?

    Every time the media reports about a date in the ’80’s, I find myself double-checking the math b/c I struggle to believe that was 30 years ago! Then I try to console myself by focusing on my college graduation, which wasn’t until the ’90’s, like that gives me back 10 years.

    Know how you feel “girls”. Someone was commenting the other day on “all we’ve seen in our lifetime”. Sorta made me feel like I was around when the first motor car was rolled out 😊

    “GIRLS” — my friends and I still call ourselves that. “Lady Friends” sounds *ancient*!! 😏
