How much again?

I was reading headlines–as I’m won’t to do when bored–when an article on ‘acceptable’ dresses for attending your high school prom caught my eye. I clicked right on, ready to get indignant at the prudery of parents and teachers (and I was–no shorter than three inches above the knee, with ruler in hand, really?).

What seriously knocked me over is reading about how families are expending around a thousand dollars between prom dresses, transportation, etc. An 18th boasts that she got away with a $500 dress, like that’s some sort of steal.

$500, at a bare minimum, for one night of your life.

No wonder so many of these kids grow up to incur debts of hundreds of thousands of dollars before they hit 30.

Book Bargain: The Governess Affair by Courtney Milan - 99c At Amazon

Just had to Kindle this, it sounds too good to pass up, especially for the great price of .99c over at Amazon.com (0.77p at Amazon UK)
