So tonight, the school where I work is having a Prom, and I'm sort of taken aback by that. Not that they're having a formal dance -- we had those in college too, but we called them "formals" (or "semi-formals", depending). "Prom" sounds like high school to me. Did anyone else have "proms" in college?

Also, the theme is described as "retro". Which is also fine, except that by retro, they mean the 1980s. The '80s are retro now? No, no, I refuse to believe that I am that old. ;)

I kind of wish I could stick around and see what "retro '80s wear" means to this crowd, but I already have plans for the evening. Oh well, there will be pictures.
