There are very few things I miss about high school…but Homecoming is one of them! I can still vividly remember the excitement of waiting for my date to pick me up, the agony of seeing someone else with Homecoming Queen and of course the few little fibs we tell when it comes to the big dance. Check out these little things I was really thinking at the Homecoming dance, and see if you relate!
When Your BFF Gets Asked in an Over-the-Top Way
She said: Awww Chloeeeee! That’s SO sweet. Can’t wait to see how my date will ask me!
She meant: I AM ALIVE WITH JEALOUSY. And it really doesn’t matter how my dude asks me because no matter what I’m going to add balloons, fireworks, sky writers and an appearance by Ryan Gosling to the story.
Discussing an Updo With Your Hair Stylist
She said: I brought these pics of Blake Lively from her premieres…something like this–easy but chic. Anything but the typical “mall hair” look.
She meant: God help you if you give me tendrils, bitch.
Finding Your Frenemy’s Stupid Homecoming Pintrest Board
She said: Follow
She meant: MOCK AND DESTROY
What You Tell the Sales Lady at Macy’s You’re Looking For in a Dress
She said: Umm, something chic but sassy. Maybe, like, purple or hunter green?
She meant: Is there a “Render Your Date Speechless With Your Hotness” category? Or perhaps a “Watch Your Nemesis Grind Her Teeth All Night Because Her Date Likes You Better” section?
Hearing Other Girls Talk About Their Dresses
She said: Oh peplum, huh? Yeah that’ll be very, uh, on-trend.
She meant: Um, not even Scarlett can pull this off totally perfectly. Please just stick to something that’s flattering–this isn’t the Met Costume Gala.
When Your Crush Asks Someone Else
She said: Pfft NBD who cares. I’m, like, totally psyched to take my time and choose someone really worthy.
She meant: Like my cousin Arnold? Because now that my crush is off the market that’s just about my other option. NBD? Try FML.
When Your Favorite Slow Song Comes On and You Spy Your Crush Walking Towards You But Your Friends Won’t Leave
She said: Hey Jules, Kristy, I see your dates looking for you. Just, yep, right over there. Better go get them! Right now!
She said: GET THE EFF AWAY FROM ME!! My crush is never going to ask me to dance if I’m in a girl cluster!
