First Prom at Age 90

Ninety-year-old great-grandmother Hasselteen Rumba of Kansas City has something to really celebrate: she attended her first prom. Going to a dance was on her "bucket list".

Great-grandson Ron Blalock said he decided to help Rumba after learning that attending a dance was on her list.

"She never went to a prom and I figured I'm having a prom so she should come with me and enjoy herself," Blalock said.

Rumba said she wasn't allowed to attend dances as a teenager.

"Well about 60 years ago my folks was real strict," Rumba said. "They said oh no you're not going to a dance. I couldn't do that."

90 yrs old? "60 yrs ago" her parents were strict? Maybe they were right not to let a 30-yr old go to prom. Haha. Good for her for accomplishing her bucket list.

saw this on yahoo or something. weird, great grandson can take gram to prom but you can't take your lesbian girlfriend to prom (heck, they cancel the whole prom because of it!). Weird messages for teens nowadays.
