I remember after the shock of him saying yes, telling my friend who so encouraged me, and she said she could never turn around and do the same with the guy she wanted to go with!!
Of course, he wacked his back on a vault, so went to the prom on crutches...we actually had a good time.
In the life is weird department, years later, in my 30's, I met him again at this friends house, and he let me know he'd really wanted to ask my friend
I honestly wish he hadn't told me. Then, my thought was, well, you didn't have the guts to ask her, she didn't have the guts to ask the guy she wanted to go with, I had the guts to ask you and I had a good time...that memory can not be taken away.
