James Tate asked Sonali Rodrigues to prom by hanging foot tall letters to the side of the school during the night. The school board said no. Tate and the other boys who helped him were banned from the prom and suspended from school for trespassing on school grounds after hours and being unsafe.
Ah, youth. I remember one time in the mid-nineties a similar situation happened. My girl and I had been in a fight, something stupid about her giving me a pen. I stood outside her house in my long tan overcoat holding a boombox over my head, blasting the song we fell in love to. Then, just as the chorus reached its peak, she looked out the window and smiled. Then her father hit me with the water hose. Because the boombox was plugged in to the outside socket, I was electrocuted and my Def Leppard CD was ruined. My family sued her family, we got millions and I lost the love of my life. I will never hear Pour Some Sugar on Me without remembering her.
Ms. Rodrigues did say yes, in case you were wondering.
