I didn’t have a date for New Year’s Eve. Now I do, but he is kind of creepy. Big teeth, thick glasses, scrawny, and he dresses badly.
Bright red plaid pants. Yes, you’ve got that, right? I saw him at a Christmas party and he was wearing them. At first they looked like pajamas, but then I saw they were pants! To me that’s not cool.
Although, he’s invited me to a totally cool party with a live band and a DJ, but I’ll have to kiss him at midnight. My friends will be there and they’ll see how desperate I’ll be feeling. Is it too late to back out?
