My PromPosal Story

It all started at lunch.

I got PROMposed to!!!

A post shared by Linda | Holistic Health Coach (@thefitty) on

I take a course called musical theater, which means no PA days, no late starts, no early dismissals, and select Saturdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays after school because they’re all dedicated rehearsal time. Rehearsal time also cut 30 minutes into our 1 hour lunch, which always leaves me 30 minutes to eat and get back to our rehearsal space. It’s a privilege to get a full lunch when you’re in this course because you’re always busy busy busy, creating and refining content.

So there I was, sitting next to my friends Kayla and Tara in the hallway at lunch. I used my backpack to block the view of open food from the hall monitor because food was prohibited on the second floor, but us seniors could care less; we always clean up after ourselves anyway so we didn’t see what the big deal was. Strangely, he wasn’t there that lunch. I wasn’t hungry, but being the bored-eater type I was, I opened up my thermos and ate some of the steamed chicken skin i packed, knowing fully well this was feeding to a bad, unintuitive habit, a habit I was determined to break someday. I finished faster than my friends and sat by the lockers, chatting leisurely and waiting for time to pass by until I go back to rehearsals. Looking back, I should have realized Kayla and Tara, the two friends who I sat with, were not close and they were only there to stall me as Daniel prepped his promposal.


But Kayla slapped Tara’s bum at some point during their giggle-off, and I didn’t question their closeness. At 11:55, I told Kayla I had to leave for MT rehearsals and she said to wait until she finished her banana. God, she was eating everything so slowly! I was getting bored of waiting for her the entire lunch. There was even a fashion show I wanted to see but she made me miss it with her slow eating.

Suddenly, “Chariots of Fire” started playing over the PA system and I saw from around the corner of the hall a guy who was running in slow motion with a group of people behind him cheering in silence. I didn’t recognize Daniel at first, but as he got closer I wondered what on earth he was doing. I figured it was some sort of flash mob advertisement for The 30 Hour Famine movement going on soon at our school a movement both myself, him, and a group of friends were participating in(it’s a movement to raise awareness for hungry children) and for just a split second I thought it was odd for Daniel to have volunteered to make such a scene in public; he was the shy type of guy. Halfway through he grabbed fake pink flowers from a guy and everyone in the hall(who was in on the prank) took out their phones and I thought it was because they wanted to capture the weirdness happening while it was still happening. Streamers were thrown around in the hall and one of them landed on me. As The song came close to an end, Daniel awkwardly ripped open his shirt to reveal a white t-shirt with pink text:


It was then I realized no one was behind me. I was sitting on the ground with my backpack on ready to leave, and no one was behind me, and everyone was looking at me, and for a second it took me a while to realize this action was all directed to me. I blinked and I blurted out,

A few people laughed and they wanted in anticipation, Daniel before them.

“Oh my god, Yes!” I jumped up and gave him a hug and realized he was sweaty.

He started jumping up and down like a child. “She said yes!” And everyone started clapping and cheering.

And that’s how it happened.

I never thought in my entire high school like I’d one one person celebrating me. Simply and honestly me. I never thought I’d have friends who’d decorate my locker for my birthday, anyone to rejoice with, much less someone who’d make a scene. I am so grateful to have Daniel, the egg boy in my life.

(Prom is May 8th, tonight. Stay tuned for updates!)

What was prom night like for you? Did you go, or what did you do instead?

    That’s a great story! What a sweet way to prompose πŸ™‚ I went to prom (waaaay back in the day) with my high school sweetheart and we’re still together today! Have an amazing time at prom tonight. Can’t wait to read all about it! ~Ree

  • I’m not going to my junior prom this year unfortunately πŸ™ I’m going senior year though! This is absolutely adorable and I hope you have a fabulous time!

  • Julia Grigorian

    What a fun story! My senior year, one of my guy friends was the sweetest. In the beginning of my recovery from anorexia and the beginning of my blog, I created a hashtag called Lord Still Loves Ice Cream (#lordstilllovesicecream) where to participate, you eat a pint of ice cream! Or any ice cream really. Anyway, my friends at school knew about it, so the guy asked me to prom with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. It was the best and I still laugh about it when I think about it. I love the creativity people go to. πŸ™‚ Have so much fun tonight!

  • Cutest prom-posal story I’ve ever heard! Sounds like you guys will have a fun time :). My boyfriend senior year just wrote prom on my car and gave me flowers and balloons. Such a typical guy idea haha

  • So cool! Have a fantastic time at prom, Linda! πŸ™‚

  • Angela @ HonestlyAngela

    Aw this sounds like something out of a movie. So sweet! I can’t wait to hear how it went!

  • Aww, that’s so cute! πŸ˜€ I hope you have a ton of fun! People who bring you food are the best! :]

  • That’s both cute and awesome!!! Hope you had a great time πŸ™‚

  • Kjaydee

    That’s a very cute story! Daniel seems like a cool guy.

    Just a note: Don’t beat yourself up for eating when you’re not hungry. Sometimes you need to eat when there are designated meal times, especially when you’re in a structured situation like school. Nourishing your body is as important as exercise!

    Hehe… πŸ™‚ I’ve never been to prom, so I haven’t had a story like that.

  • Juliana

    This is terribly cute!!

  • Hm, when I went to prom, I went with a cousin. And before you get any ideas, no, she and I are not in “that” sort of relationship. I just asked her to accompany me ’cause there were no old enough girls that were close enough to me in my social circle. The things I remember most about the prom I went to was the suit…that stuffy suit…and the organized dance that the teachers had us do, which contained enough fun for me. Actually, during high school, the females I frequently interacted with are the ones in my family and some of the female teachers in school, hahaha…but hey, I see lots of awesomeness in them, yo! \(^o^)

    • It’s totally fine to go with a female as a friend. You’d still make great memories and have pictures to look back on πŸ™‚ I would’ve went with you, haha. We’re you voice acting Keith by the way?

      • Yeah, I think that’s okay too! And hey, our proms are over already, so I guess I’ll definitely decline, hahaha! Oh, and I voiced Brendon, not Keith!
