Most people look back at high school prom photos with some mixture of embarrassment and nostalgia. Not Eleanor Clarke.

The only thing she will ever wonder is the question currently pinned to the top of her Twitter timeline: “Still don’t know how I got away with a huge hip flask as my prom clutch.”

Most people put their booze in novelty items: awful jewelry, perfume bottles, water bottles, binoculars, etc. Clarke hid hers in plain sight, carrying it under her arm like it was her handbag. It’s brilliant, and it inspired dozens of applause GIFs and 61,000 retweets.

For what it’s worth, Clarke has promised to stay humble.

Who needs a date when you’re packing a half-a-liter of hard liquor?
