Oh, the irony*

While packing up all of our worldly possessions I came across the prom Spring Formal favors from FCA's first ever prom Spring Formal.

After mustering up the courage (and I'm not really sure what made me think to ask in the first place), I asked C to attend this inaugural event. I still take crap from him over not inviting him to prom Spring Formal my senior year, but in my defense I knew he really needed to focus on his studies at Miami to make that year worth it (read: to earn any credit hours).

Last week C and I decided this was our first date. We had hung out a lot before that, but our siblings and parents were usually there. So this was the first "just us, could be construed as romantic (although we both agree it wasn't)" outing, thus making it a "date".

I decided since things worked out for us that I should keep the glasses (not sure I otherwise would have), but couldn't help but see the irony* in them.

A martini glass and beer mug for the students of FCA. The students who had to sign the Student Handbook saying they wouldn't drink so long as they were enrolled in the school.

For the record, each glass also came with a footprint lapel pin to remind us that Jesus is with us every step of the way.

*C confirmed that the word I am looking for is "irony" (I usually don't use the word right). If I am incorrect please take it up with him.
