You don’t want to play with Barbie’s? You don’t have to. You don’t want to poke yourself in the eye? You don’t have to. You don’t want to have a cat lick your nose? You don’t have to. You don’t want to go to the dance you just got asked to? You have to.
Recently I had an interesting experience I want to share with you. A little over a year ago I broke up with my girlfriend, things just weren’t working out. We hadn’t talked in a month and I thought things were over for real until she struck. I got home from work one day looking to go relax in my room and what else do I find, but a big mess. Now this didn’t surprise me because I am obviously one of the coolest and most wanted guys at Alta. What did surprise me was who had asked me. It was her, my ex-girlfriend.
Let’s jump back a little bit to my sophomore year. My mom told me when I started dating that if I ever got asked to a dance then I would have to say yes because it is common courtesy. Now lets pretend that I got asked by two girls and one of them was one that I really wanted to go with and the other was similar to a one cow wife. The hot and funny one asked me second though, I would have to go with the cow woman. That is where I have an issue. Why can’t you say no to a dance? I understand that is a little bit rude and it might make someone sad but what about my feelings? That dance was one of the worst and most awkward nights of my life and do you know why? Because of some stupid rule someone made up and the beginning of time. You cant say no if you get asked to a dance
