So it’s likely my last year teaching, unless no other job offer comes post MBA, I probably won’t get to chaperon dances anymore. I’m OK with this entirely, but I thought the assignment to chaperon Prom passed up too good of a date opportunity! (Lots of schools and churches need chaperons, or anyone could set up their own Prom themed date). Both of us attended our Proms with people who were just pals, so this was the perfect opportunity to get to say I went with my husband- someone I actually wanted to hang with!
The high school I teach at has a culture to ask in a creative way, I thought I’d be a dork and do the same for Jacob. After a marketing conference near the Sprinkles in Scottsdale I picked up a few cupcakes. I’d printed the sign earlier that day. Jacob knew I was on my way home, so it made it even more funny. I parked my car in our driveway and door ditched with this. I heard a lot of laughter from the front porch and he came and found me hiding on the side of the garage. Sometimes I think it’s these unexpected dorky things that keep us in love!
I teased for a week or two that I didn’t know if I had a date, he hadn’t answered me. A few days before Prom I woke up and found this on our fridge:
Watch out for those dorky white people on the dance floor!
