I'm old enough to have been asked to prom verbally, but it's my understanding that promposals are extremely important these days. So important, it seems, they're worth risking hefty fines and jail time just in the interest of doing some original and cute.© Facebook/Colorado National Monument This Promposal Could Land a Teen in Jail
According to the Daily Sentinel, officials at the Colorado National Monument recently discovered a spray-painted message that appears to be a promposal on some rocks within the park. The messages, painted across not one but several rocks, read, "I promise to love you Forever + Always," "You're perfect to me," and "PROM...ISE?"
While spray painting regular rocks that aren't within one of the country's national parks is perfectly fine, if a little weird, vandalizing national park land is a federal misdemeanor punishable by three to six months of jail time and up to a $5,000 fine.
But, perhaps softened by the idea of young love, park officials trying to locate the romantic vandalizer have said they'll go easy on whoever comes forward.
"If someone came forward we would be much more lenient," park ranger Frank Hayde told the Daily Sentinel. "If we have to keep investigating and put out a reward, it will be much harsher. If this was a young person, even if they should have known better, maybe they didn't."
Let this be a lesson to all future promposal-ers: if you're going to take your date to a national park (a lovely idea!), don't spray paint anything. Leave no trace and have a happy and safe prom.
