Ashlee Simpson's Permanent Wrist Corsage
We can see why Ashlee Simpson thought it'd be cool to get a life-size corsage on her wrist. It's like prom everyday! Which sounds like a good idea -- if you're 16 and most of the pop songs on the radio feel like they're written just for you (or, we suppose, you write songs for 16-year-olds). In either case, prom for life probably sounds great. But just give it a few years.
It's fine to reminisce about adolescence, but if you're honest with yourself, being a teenager wasn't so grand, and the truth is, prom is all hype. The limo ride and the after-party are typically better than the dancing, and there's nothing much to do besides scope out the dresses. Simpson's corsage is like tattooing a diaper around your waist. We've all been there, but it doesn't mean we want to go back.
