Two teens posed before prom, a girl in a mint green satin dress next to a boy in a Depeche Mode-esque grey and black suit.

1991’s mint green is the best mint green

Me, talking to the Americans I live with: Wait, you had to pay to go to prom?

Alan: Yeah, it was like $100. But they needed that to rent the Hyatt Regency.

Me: My prom was in the school gymnasium.

Alan [laughing]: Well, this is America, not the third world country you grew up in.

Me: Yeah, I’ll take my hurt feelings to the hospital where I can get them treated for free.

Alan: …we’re working on that.

So then I had to find this picture to show him the sweet dress my Mum made me for prom.
