Prom season is here! So, while all the ladies are out at the last minute shopping for dresses and the guys scrambling for tuxedos we thought we would add to the prom tornado with a look at one of the most interesting prom photos ever to be taken.
President Obama in 1979 taking his Prom pictures! In the photo below you can clearly see that Obama is having a really great time!
It kind of looks like President Obama fancies his friends date more than his own doesn’t he? Anyways, Time Magazine has some… interesting details regarding the picture.
Obama spent most of his time in high school shooting hoops, studying and having fun with friends. The male friend in the picture, was his best bud Greg Orme. During the Prom the duo double dated. Obama and his date Megan (the blonde on the right) met Orme and his date, Kelli Allman at Allman’s house where they had champagne (UNDERAGE DRINKING ANYONE?) before going off to the dance. It was a pretty typical Prom for Obama as he went out to dinner and then to the dance.
The photos were originally sent to Time Magazine by Kelli Allman, Obama’s friends date. She also shared what Obama wrote here in her yearbook at the end of senior year.
You are very sweet and FOXY! I have no clue why Greg wants to spend any time with me at all.
