Elizabeth's school has an annual formal dance for students in grades 9-12, but seniors make a bigger deal of it so it comes close to being a prom. Elizabeth has attended all four years; she and her boyfriend got together after going to the formal together freshman year. She has been looking forward to this year for months, and finally tonight is the night. I think she went shopping with friends for her dress. She wasn't happy with her choices of evening bags so she crocheted her own. Her advisor gave her a ride to a store to buy a black satin ribbon for the strap.
