Eagle Eye Promposal Contest: Fishing For A Prom Date

Eagle Eye Promposal Contest: Fishing For A Prom Date

Junior Parker Mitchell found a creative way to ask his longtime girlfriend, Payton Wagner, to prom using her love of fishies. Mitchell bought two goldfish and made a sign that read ” Out of all the fish in the sea, will you go to Prom with me?”. Payton was ecstatic about her new prom date and pets to care for. Unfortunately, this fairy tale doesn’t have a happy ending as one of the fish died four days later. The couple will still be attending prom though!
