You have to start your detox months in advance.
Work hard on that golden tan.
Not to mention taming some unruly hair.
…Wherever it may be.
And of course, put on a good face.
Search long and hard for that perfect dress.
In the end, don’t look like this.
Make a graceful first appearance to your mom and dad.
Match yourself with a great date.
Take beautiful and lasting pre-prom pictures.
Hitch a cool ride.
Ensure that the venue is tasteful.
Make a grand entrance.
Take a flaw-free picture with your date.
Make sure nobody is wearing the same outfit as you.
Keep yourself entertained.
Don’t drink too much punch.
Try not to dance like a fool.
Navigate the slow dance successfully.
Look good throughout the whole night.
Stay away from drama.
Most importantly, compete for Queen.
And if applicable, have your first time.
But then avoid this.
Have the best night of your life.
