I wasn't really dating anyone special at that time...my personality was such that I had a LOT of good friends...boys and girls...but I was not really into romantic liaisons! My friends all insisted I invite someone to go...so I got up the nerve to ask a guy who had graduated a couple of years before me...he WAS really cute so a couple of weeks before the dance, my gal pals and I drove out to his house which was out in the country.
Actually we had a good time and he and I dated some that summer when he was home from college! The year I asked him to the dance, he was going to a local college and living at home.
Looking back and knowing how I HATE to drive in bad weather, I had forgotten how as teenagers, we were just like the Mailman..."Snow nor rain nor dark of night will keep us from our destination!" (or something like that!)
