Have You Ever Been to a Homecoming Dance?

My 15-year old grandson is going to his high school’s Homecoming Dance tonight. It will be his FIRST “date,” I guess, but he is meeting her there. He doesn’t have his driver’s license yet. This photo is from Pixabay. It's not my grandson. There is a Homecoming football game also, but it may be cancelled because of the rain coming in tonight from Hurricane Matthew. Several of my family, were planning to go to the game. My daughter wanted me to go too, but I’m really not interested. If the game is played, it will be cold outside and I’m not interested in sitting on cold bleacher seats for two hours. I remember going to Homecoming dances and Homecoming football games when I was a teen-ager. It’s still a BIG DEAL, I guess. A “right of passage” I guess, for all teenagers. Sort of like the PROM. Have you ever been to a Homecoming Dance?

The game was tonight. The dance is tomorrow night. I was confused. So, they went to the game. No rain, which surprised me. I still haven't heard who won the football game. They got in late. I guess I will find out tomorrow.
