The first dance
A big social step, the question is, am I ready?

It comes out in a happy rush: 'Mom, I asked X to the dance and she said yes.'

Hold up there, little boy! A few small points to query.

a) Who is X?

b) What dance?

c) You're 11?

And so we enter a whole new phase of socialising with girls. I'm ready. I think.
