A girl without a prom date manned up and decided not to miss one of the most important events in her young life, even if it meant taking her calculator as her date.
“No one asked me to prom, so I took my calculator,” Tumblr user ishipitlikeups wrote on her blog. Urged by other users to share some photos and prove herself, the girl added a series of pics of her holding her trusty TI-84 Plus Silver Edition graphic calculator all dressed-up and ready to party. He wore a hand-made silk tuxedo complete with a nice little bow tie and was the star of the show as his date introduced him to her friends and teachers.
The creative girl, named Regina Reynolds, only a junior in high-school,was surprised to see her story go viral so fast, but was quick to respond to online users’ reactions on major social platforms like Twitter and Facebook. Although there was the occasional negative comment to her choice as partner, most people congratulated Regina for her original geeky idea and considered her an inspiration.
