Punk rocker that I was, I also was too cool for prom, Long Island circa 1984. I went to see the Violent Femmes at Danceteria instead. Your writing brought back some fond memories. Thank you!

This is really lovely and when I looked at that prom photo, it was a direct trip back to my own time in high school...as my prom was in 1980. I had a white dress almost identical to Ruth's. Thanks for the memories.

Beautiful! How wonderful that you reconnected with Ruth and her memory of you and that wonderful night.
