Whether or not you’re taking a Texans cheerleader, have a great prom in three easy steps

This Saturday, HMNS is hosting the prom for Crosby High School — and one student is in for an especially memorable night. Most high school football players dream big and take a cheerleader to their prom (some take it uber-seriously and hold prom drafts…), but one local teen has taken prom-posals to the next level.

Mike Ramirez, 17, reached out to Houston Texans cheerleader Caitlyn Beth on Twitter, asking if she’d go with him to prom if he got 10,000 retweets. She accepted and within 24 hours, not only had he met the goal — he’d surpassed it!

We’d like to say congratulations to Mike on your prom-Twitter-swag and we hope that you and Caitlyn will have a great time together!

Now, all of this prom talk got me thinking: My prom seems to have happened in a simpler time. With these extravagant prom-posals happening everywhere, I wondered what else might be changing about prom.

So I did some research and I’ve synthesized every prom-advice guide into three simple steps, guaranteed to ensure that your prom is awesome.

1. FIND A DATE

It could be literally anyone or anything! Now if you’re dating someone, it’s probably a bad move to ask someone else to prom. But if you’re single, the world is your oyster! Ask a friend! Ask your grandma! Bring a pet! Or, if you really wanna turn heads, bring a cardboard cutout of a celebrity!

2. WEAR CLOTHES

Gown, tux, whatever – just have something on. You’ll also probably want to coordinate with your date (see step 1), but don’t shy away from color!.

 

3. GO TO PROM

You’re almost there! Now all you have to do is get there.

There you go — the secrets to a great prom revealed! And happy prom night to everyone at Crosby High School, and we hope you have a great time at HMNS.

ALSO, bonus points for anyone who gets this for their date:
