It's prom night ... I'm cleaning my gun!

It's prom night ... I'm cleaning my gun!

Yes, my baby girl is going to the Lassiter High School prom tonight. Well, technically she's my step daughter, but me and her mom have been together since Tori was 2. This is the baby girl who pee'd on my leg while we were watching "The Hunchback of Notre Dame".  She is amazingly beautiful and he seems like a nice young man. But still she is our baby girl and he is a teenage boy....

Her mom already made him write an essay to turn in to us about why he should be allowed to take her to prom.  Really.  :-)  He turned that in to us on Thursday. I have the address of the Fox Theater in Atlanta programmed in the GPS that I'm loaning them.  Home is programmed in as well.  No getting lost excuses tonight!

But still, this is my baby girl. I thought a little fear will be a good thing.  So I had a little man to man talk with him. A little talk about trust, a little about respect, and of course 11:30 means 11:30 NOT 11:31!

Prom night...clean my gun

So here is how it went down. After arriving at our house to pick Tori up, Barbara wanted us all to go to Lost Mountain Lakes to take the pictures.  The have a nice gazebo there out on the lake that would be a nice spot for photos.  No problem.  Tori can ride with Barbara. The GPS, the machine gun, and me can ride in the car with Andre'.  I think I made him a little nervous....

Hi Bob,  What were you thinking  !?!   Is it too late to go  to the prom with them ?  Is it too late to consider a double date ?  LOL   Take a deep breath, relax, maybe watch some basketball ... and have the " safety " off at 11:31 !

My daughter has always asked why I don't like her boyfriend.  I told her I can't, because someday I might have to kill him.  :)

Bob, I can so empathize with that.  Instead of a gun I used to make sure the guy saw me packing my gym bag with my martial arts gear and made sure he saw my black belt...I think it worked. 

My daughter is now thirty-three and I'm glad all that stuff is behind me.

I can relate...I have a teenage daughter going to her first prom next year. I don't think the gun will be needed though.

As the father of two boys, I thank God I never had daughters!  If I had, I'm sure I would have been just as protective as you and your wife.  Hope the happy couple had a safe and enjoyable Prom night.

Howdy and evenen to ya Bob

When by stepdaughter's boyfriend came to take her out the very first time, I put on three of my six shooters. And I took him out back and showed him I never miss the bulls eye.

Hello Bob - It's got to hard on dad's.  Our little girl still has about 15 years before she'll be ready for prom.
