Under the Sea…Prom in Antarctica

14 Jan

I got a special invitation from Peggy and Anne (our friends that have been here for the last decade or more) that the BFC (Berg Field Center) was hosting Prom with ‘Under the Sea’ as the theme.  Since I recall how fantastic prom was in high school, I figured I would give this a try. 

I was told it was a formal affair and people were wearing ball gowns and such, but I found a few things to dazzle me up and worked on a date.  Linda and I decided to take our neighbor Aaron.  He was a lucky man that night with two women on his arm.

We arrived fashionably late but just in time for all of the fun.  There was great 80’s music and wonderful dancing if you can imagine how great it was back in highschool.  We stopped by the photo booth for a few snap shots.  We even were just in time for the annoucing of the prom king and queen.  The royal court was drawn in a carriage by some strapping young men around the room and they took their first dance to some really cheezy 80’s song that was probably written by Air Supply, Journey, or REO Speedwagon. 

Linda, Aaron and I enjoyed our time thoroughly and got a kick out of all of the costumes, the music, and the great dancing.  People really go to town on these occasions.
