I went to prom with two lesbians and my ex-girlfriend so I am not sure I’m one to talk, but I do appreciate when something makes a good story. Prom is an important night for many young girls (myself included) and not having a date is no reason to stay home and miss it. Regina Reynolds agreed with that sentiment and decided to take her T1-84 calculator to prom instead of a date, prompting me to ask the inevitably question: who uses calculators anymore?
She made it a little tuxedo and bow-tie, introduced it to people as her date, and even slow-danced with it, in perhaps the biggest missed opportunity to create a viral video ever. There is no word on whether or not she lost her virginity and/or has plans to marry her calculator, but if her prom night went anything like mine, I am guessing that calculator awoke ass-up in a ditch with a condom in it’s ear. Ah, young love.
