Well, he did. He finally turned on me and broke my heart. I know it's probably a normal teenager's reduced brain function, or hormones or something, but hey! It still stings!
There is a semi-formal dance at his school on Friday. I asked him if he was planning to go to it and he looked at me like I was crazy. No way was he going to a dance. I thought it was only because he was too shy to ask someone to go along with him and threw out a few suggestions from the nice girls I know in his class. He said no to all of them. I suggested he go with his best friend. He still said no. What could be holding him back? I know he wants to go. Who wouldn't? So I did the only thing a good mother could do. I offered to go as his date. I offered myself up but it's not a truly altruistic gesture. I really want to go to the dance. I LOVED high school dances when I was in high school!
He said, "NOOOOOOOO WAY!!!!" He acted like I suggested he run naked through the homecoming game. What's wrong with me? I've held up! I'd pay for everything! I'd even buy my own wrist corsage! I told him all the advantages of going with his mom and he was not fazed at all! Can you believe it! I even suggested a double date with his friend Andy and Andy's mom. Still, he wouldn't think about it for even one second. He didn't even try to let me down easy! What a monster! It's like I'm in high school all over again.
But I'll show him. I am going to find another date to this dance and just show up! Then he'll be jealous!
