    How I Asked A Girl To Prom

    Materials:
    1 sneaky ninja
    5 hours of time
    1,000 sticky notes

    I am a senior in high school (incase you didn't already know) and I wanted to ask one of my friends to prom, and I thought I might as well be creative. The whole plan went down today.

    A few nights ago, I spent a couple hours writing "Prom?" on 1,000 sticky notes. Today, I had one of our friends steal her keys in the morning (without her noticing) and give them to me. Then I got excused from two classes and spent the entire time putting them on her windows, doors, dash, etc. I also spelled out the word "Prom?" with a different color of sticky notes on her windsheild. I ended up spending over 3 hours doing it and missed half of a class that I wasn't excused from.

    She loved it and said yes.

    Check out the pictures:

    Wow, you really went the extra mile with that one
    Shame you broke so many laws... Oh well.

    I bet your office supplier loved you

    EDIT: I hope you helped her take them off the windsheild?

    Me and all my friends walked to our cars like we always do so everyone was there to see her reaction. And yeah, we all helped her clean them up.

    Very Creative

    Now, don't mess up the Prom, or get ill on the night... It sucks. And make sure she washes her hair at least 12hours prior to you picking her up. That way she has no excuse to change her mind with

    Good Luck

    Wow, that was really really great. Love that. I have often thought about doing big things like that too, but always ended with an easy solution. I will probably get a smack because of that in the future, but I am still alive and kicking.


    Kudos (SP?) to you...really....

    Don't feel bad. With the group of people that I hand out with, it is kind of expected that all the guys go over the top. It is kind of a competition between us. I just asked on of the single girls, but most of the guys are in an ongoing (friendly) competition for the title of "best boyfriend".

    It's great! You better start thinking now about how you will ask her to marry you, because you'll have to top this one.

    No, but we did make an agreement in our group of friends this year that if the guys have to go all out to ask the girls, then the girls have to go all out to say "yes" to the guys. The girl I asked told me that if Carl Sagan was still alive she would have him call me and say yes. That would pretty much make my day/year/life.

    Incase I ever read this thread years from now I want it to be linked to this thread:

    ... And it didn't cost that much. Mostly because I already had an economy pack of sticky notes, but even then, it coulnt' be more than like $10 I would think.
