All Dressed Up

It's Anna. It's Saturday. Anna is... going out on a Saturday!?

Before two o'clock, Bouncy A calls Anna to ask if she can get a ride to homecoming. "You're going, aren't you?"

"Uh... no."

Bouncy A, quite dissapointed, proceeeds to carry on a conversation about how Anna ought to go, how Anna shouldn't be scared of Necker's sister, whether there is a large stick-beating in the Bible, whether or not she will beat with Anna with stick if Anna doesn't go, why the only dresses Anna owns are an outgrown qi-pao and an elf costume, how Necker probably doesn't hate Anna, how Bouncy will ask Necker to dance with Anna/beat him with a stick, and how Anna really just ought to go.

Three o'clockish, Brittany has repeated all of Bouncy's arguments. Three-thirtyish, and Brittany's brought Anna a whole stack of dresses that aren't outgrown qi-paos or elf costumes. Five minutes later, Anna's picked the hot pink net one with the metal loop as a clear favorite. Four o'clock, and Anna has accessorized, added a black velvet skirt underneath, and realized she owns a hot pink purse with metal loops that matches just superbly. She's also realized that her hot pink flats live in her hall locker, and that she must now choose between black heels and fishnets, black boots and kneesocks, or hot pink cowboy boots and stockings.

Four-thirtyish, and Anna is off to shower, shave her legs, make that shoe-and-sock decision, maybe dye her hair, find a black sweater, call a whole spate of people, pack up her pink purse, and actually attend homecoming.

And 3 o'clock the next day Anna decides to drop by Larry's house to give him some money.

WHEEEEEEE! I totally win. You had a blast, didn't you? I know you did. And if you didn't (Which i know you didn't) well, that's my fault and you can beat me with a big ugly stick if you want.
