My son asked a girl to homecoming. That's only remarkable if you know my son. He has been silent on the subject of girls and appears really completely oblivious to the world of the fairer sex. We were floored to say the least. Turns out Dr. Who is enough to have in common with a girl to cement a homecoming dance level relationship.
He was pretty clueless in fact: he needed much prodding to find out the where's and how's and when's and other details. Including dress for the evening. And then the issue of flowers. We explained a bit, and thought he was on the right track. Until he started talking about the corset he needed us to order for her on his behalf????? Corsage --> corset....Ahhh. Yup - spelling counts.
It got even more fun when our older son (who, btw, knows everything about anything, just ask him) started explaining corsets and why you would never think to buy one for a girl, in fact, it's such a bad idea, even dad would know better than to buy one for mom.
