Well, that's awful about your mother hitting you - that habit has got to stop in the culture.
I have to say I would LOVE to see your prom pics, kc!! *2* dates!! That must have been hilarious - you are right, it must have looked like you were there with bodyguards!! You & The Dates must have had the best time!! How did you convince them to go together like that? Were they jealous? How did that work?
Ya...I agree with you...I remember when I was still in elementary school(I was around 9 I think)..I think I said something, it was bad, and I got a fat lip because she hit me with her shoe. No teacher intervene or asked me or questioned what happened.
Or there was a time where I wouldn't do what my mom wanted me to do and she would pull my hair to do what she wanted me to do(I was about 14 or 15).
I remember I almost missed the bus to get to school for a final exam in science(i hated science) and I had to pretend that nothing happened. I don't remember if I was hit, I think I blocked it....but i was lucky to catch the bus and passed the exam, this was in grade 10.
So, when I had my doctor warn my mother about the whiplash, nothing happened after that.
I remember when I was 11 or 12, my one of my brothers friends smacked my ass too, it was one summer, my parents weren't around...I didn't say anything, even to this day actually coming to think about it.
Regarding my prom, I may have pictures, but I'm not sure where they are...basically, I was going out with one of them, but the other guy i was friends with. So, I agreed that it would be okay to bring both of them as long they were okay with it. They weren't jealous...so it was a fun night!
