But, then again at least one girl asked me to go steady when I was 10 years old and because I was shy this was more embarrassing than anything else for me at the time. I think she had seen me in my Sunday Church Suit at a restaurant and was impressed or something. It's amazing how difficult some aspects of those kinds can be for young people trying to make sense of it all.

We both loved it because it is just like things were then in so many ways (at least for white people in suburbia in the U.S.)
