Ah, the halcyon days of youth, where the right crowd, a nice blue serge suit, and a prom dress TDF could add up to the apotheosis of many a teenager's life.

Too much!

Excellent selection of photographs. I enjoyed it. Something every British person knows about even though we don't have that here as such.

It's one apotheosis I missed. Actually, 'deliberately avoided' is more like it. I was in the full flower of anti-bourgeoisie, Rebel-Without-a-Pity adolescence (a true state of mind if ever one were charted), and you couldn't have paid me to get-up in one of those powder-blue tuxes and go to my Senior Prom (a posture that was immeasurably assisted by the fact that I was sans-girlfriend at the time).

Looking back, do I regret it?

Sometimes.

Tom, I plead the same. I was writing about this for my blog last month, but put it aside due to family matters, so I guess I'll have to finish. It was a timely post.
