Sadie Hawkins Dance?
Tonight is the Sadie Hawkins Dance here in small town Wyoming. The big girl here is a freshman and has no idea how good she has it. There are a group of a dozen girls who are close friends. They appreciate their friendships, but I don't think any of them realize that it is unusual to have so many close girl friends who can continue to hang out together without major divisiveness. The girls are all hanging out, getting ready. They have a BBQ planned, which they don't seem to be too concerned about how or if the boys join them for. They will all head to the dance in about an hour, to make an appearance. None of them are big into dancing so they will bail pretty early to head to another house for a bonfire. Most of the girls will then have a sleep over. Are you noticing that this is really about the girls getting to hang out with an interlude of boys? So, I wonder if it is really about the Sadie Hawkins Dance or just an excuse for an elaborate sleepover. ;)
