1. Ironed hair and copious amounts of body glitter for the girls

2. Crispy, gelled spikes in the hair for the boys

3. Convincing your mam to leave you off at a darkened Dunnes car park…

4. …Where you swiftly downed some sort of horrific alcoholic concoction with your mates before trooping inside

5. The boys and girls standing on opposite sides of the room for no reason other than mortification

6. But loosening up when Bobby Joe/Saturday Night/that Country Roads remix came on

7. That one lad who thought he could break dance. There was always one

8. Everyone horsing into chewing gum to freshen themselves up for the possibility of the shift

9. “My friend wants to know will you go with him?”

10. Witnessing (and experiencing) the worst, sloppiest, most terrible kissing of all time

11. Then walking back to your friends straight away afterwards without a word to them

12. Dipping into your pocket money to splash out on a warm can of Fanta

13. Accidentally touching a wall that was slippery with condensation. Rotten

14. Hearing that someone had to go home because they vommed everywhere, and being slightly scandalised

15. The lights coming on, and everyone suddenly becoming mortified again

16. Reuniting with your paramour outside for one last shift against the back wall

18. The dads and mams leaning against their cars outside, ready to whisk you away

19. Hearing the rumours at school on Monday morning about someone getting ‘topped’. GASP

20. Then mmediately starting plans for the next one
