Last Dance Update, I Promise

So, dance was last night. Mark and Eddie met the girls in the lobby and they all went inside together. Mark didn't end up able to pay Kelly's way in because of the way they ended up standing (who knows what that means).

Mark danced with Kelly for the first slow song, and then Kelly took Eddie aside so she could break up with him for Kate, and Kate took Mark aside to tell him that Kelly likes someone else so she couldn't dance with him anymore.

Mark was bummed for a few minutes, but then asked another girl to dance (who he doesn't like, but she has a crush on him), and then another girl (just a friend), and then ended up dancing three times with Nicole. Nicole used to go to our school, but moved to another school nearby a few years ago. She's been flirting with Mark for some time now, whenever they run into each other, but she's also been dating someone. Apparently that is now over. Mark asked her if she wants to go to a movie next week. She's thinking about it. They're trying to figure out a good time to double with Eddie and Holly (Nicole's friend, who Eddie hooked up with at the dance after Kate dumped him...the boy does NOT let grass grow under *his* feet.)

In the meantime, there has been much IM-ing. When they got home from the dance last night, and then more today. Since Tuesday when Mark got IM, he's developed quite an extensive buddy list. TWO are guys. The rest....girls.

In Mark's words, "This dance totally ruled." ooooookay. mk

Oh the joys of young love - always so much drama. I don't know how those kids keep it all straight. (I obviously did when I was their age!!!)

Of course, having cell phones sure has helped with it!

to be young again! Iwish :)

Oh, I know, the drama!

Fortunately (for me), so far Mark does not have a cell. I'm trying to hold out until he's in high school.

BG, as soon as Mark told me Kelly said that, I blurted right out, "Wow, good thing you didn't pay her way in!" Really, that would have been most of a week's allowance for him to dance with her once and then get ditched.

Sounds typical to me. I wouldn't go back to that age for nothing even if I could. Those were heart breaking days for me. Glad that he took this all in stride.

I am so, so, so glad I'm not in school anymore.

I was wondering how it all went. Oh well. Sounds like it all turned out for the best! So now we prepare for his first date! Keep me posted.

P.S. Have a good trip.
