Prom Dresses: A Short Story

Judge Memorial seems to be about the only school in the Salt Lake Valley that does short dresses for their annual prom. Last year, I attended Cottonwood High School's prom and wore a short dress, assuming that that was the norm. However, I had to apologize to my date, as I was literally the only girl there who sported a dress even remotely above the knees. It's a bummer that Judge girls feel the need to wear short dresses; yes, they're easier to dance in but long dresses are so regal, so princess-esque. I wore a medium length dress to prom this year, a concession to the rest of my Judge peers and my desire to feel like a princess for a night.
