Sherry jumped out of bed and could barely hold in her excitement. The day of her senior Prom had finally arrived. |
Sherry had been dreaming about senior prom night ever since sophomore year when she met Josh. She and Josh had been steadies ever since then. They really made an adorable couple. Josh was about 6 feet tall now and had gorgeous, shoulder length, brown, flowing hair. Sherry was about 5'6" and had long flowing Blonde hair. Sherry just knew tonight would magical. How could it not be?
Sherry and Josh's two best friends, Dotti and Bruce, were double dating for the prom and they all chipped in to share a limousine. The limo driver was planning on picking up Bruce and Dotti first, then Josh, and finally Sherry. Sherry wanted it that way because she wanted to take lots of pictures of all of them in their formals next to the beautifully bloomed garden in Sherry's backyard.
After hours of primping and fussing, Sherry was finally ready. The whole family was waiting downstairs in the living room for Sherry to make her grand entrance. Mom was at the bottom of the stairs with the video camera, and Dad and her 12 year old brother Timmy were seated on the couch.
There she was. Sherry looked stunning as she strolled down the stairs. Her light pink spaghetti strap dress seemed to flow with her every movement. Her golden blonde hair shimmered. She looked like a princess.
"You look like a pink elephant!..HAHAHA", Timmy remarked, as would any younger brother.
"Shut up Timmy! You little Freak!"..Sherry snapped back.
"Can we have 10 minutes without you two at each other's throats?" Mom asked.
"Okay, okay...Mom, enough with the video. Josh and the gang should be here in 20 minutes and we really need to pick out the best spot by the garden for pictures" Sherry said.
The whole family headed out to the yard, even their St. Bernard, Fluffers.
The flower garden looked absolutely beautiful and Sherry saw the best spot for the pictures. Mom, Dad and Sherry took a few test shots while Timmy stood to the side making fart noises with his hand in his armpit.
Just then, Fluffers, their dog, ran over to the big evergreen tree on the other side of the yard and started barking like a crazy dog. Curious what Fluffers could be all excited about, Sherry, in her beautiful dress and high heeled strappy shoes, walked over to Fluffers and the tree.
Mom yelled from the other side of the yard, "What do you see Honey?"
"I don't see anything, Mom. Wait, there's something rustling under the tree. It must be a cat. Yeah, it's a cat. A black and white one. Let me shoo it out of here." Sherry said.
"Don't get dirty, Honey!" Mom yelled.
What happened next could only happen in a teenage girls worst nightmare. That was no cat under that tree.
"SHERRY! RUN!" Dad yelled, hoping to stop her in time.
Too late...Sherry had just been sprayed by a SKUNK!
"Beep, Beep!" sounded the horn of the limo that had just pulled up in front.
Timmy, now rolling on the ground, holding his stomach due to the pain all his laughter was causing him, managed to snort out "They're heeeeeeeeeere!...HAHAHA"
