I had a conversation with a friend the other day about how high school included some weird dates. I don’t know how it is anywhere else, but in Utah they make a big deal about date dances. When you ask someone to a dance, you do it in a creative way, and they answer you back in a creative way. The date also has to be creative. This idea applied, there are some weird dates going on with high school kids.

One of those awkward dates for me was Homecoming. My date decided it would be great to have lunch on a little round about right in front of a Chevrolet dealership. We got there and there was a little table set up in the middle. We sat and ate a chicago style pizza and watched people shop for cars at the Chevrolet dealership. As we were shouting to hear each other over the sound of the traffic, a guy in a suit came jogging across the road. It turns out the Chevrolet dealership was not happy with us being there. We left.

I guess it makes for a funny story, but at the time it was just kind of awkward! But I am a fan of Chicago style pizza…so at least that was good!
