    We didn't have them in Indiana where I went to high school. They are real big in Texas. There's a whole cottage industry centered around Homecoming Mums. There's even Homecoming Garters for the guys.
    Every year I drop about $80 on a Homecoming Mum for my daughter. This year I have 2 daughters in high school...I'm going to have to sell blood just to accommodate them.

    Ah yes, I remember my first pet T-Rex with fondness. We never had problems with salespeople or Jehovah's Witnesses. Come to think about it we didn't get many visitors either.

    $160 bucks?! Ack.

    Always have a gay guy do any flower arrangements you need. They do a better job than women, and can put together stuff you've never even thought of for like 1/3 to 1/2 less.

    we didn't do all that at my high school, the only thing you had to buy were corsages and boutineers for the dance.
