My prom date and I never married. We did meet once three years later for 24 hours in Venice. When the train stopped exactly in the spot where our noses met - i was in my seat and he was standing on the platform-once again we were nose to nose this time with a train window between us. He became an OB/GYN and I never stopped painting and designing clothes. The dress embarrassingly enough was my own creation...shawl to match...i even embellished the ballet flats. The song was "We may never pass this way again." Yet, it was The Miracles, Love Machine that had EVERYONE ON THE DANCE FLOOR. A group of six of us headed to a very memorable and very fancy dinner at the Century Club - the king crab legs, chocolate mousse and WINE - courtesy of Davids' Dad!
