Not sure if this is amusing, but it is memorable. My cousin was born with a lung disease known as Cystic Fibrosis, it is pretty serious disease and not many people live very long if they have it. She had a lung transplant at a young age but by the time she was a senior her body was rejecting the lung, scary I know. Needless to say when your body is going through that you miss a lot of school. My school has this policy that you must pass all your classes, and have a 90% attendance rate to go to any of the school dance, including prom. Now you think when a student is LITERALLY DYING you would make an exception. However, this public school does not care and told my cousin she could not go to prom? The solution? She had her own prom in the parking lot of the prom she could not attend. I was only in eighth grade at the time but I was being a brat and demanded to be invited. So I went and it was amazing. My cousin even brought a Johnny Depp life sized cut out as her date and did the gangnam style dance with it. This was way back when that song was really popular. Some of the kids who were attending the original prom came outside and partied with us. My uncle was the DJ and brought his phone and speaker, the music was kind of terrible but we were having too much fun to care. The teachers tried to stop us but you know us crazy kids just ignored them. I heard a lot of the kids were in trouble when they went back but I was in middle school so I was safe. We ended the night with our middle fingers raised high and left. It was one of the last times I saw my cousin happy before she died. I will always remember that night and the teachers faces as we gathered around in a parking lot in prom attire defying the system.
