A while back I mentioned asking a girl out in the 9th grade. We had Algebra together I think, and after class one day, I worked up the nerve to ask her out. She said no, that she wanted to protect our friendship. And, of course, we weren't really friends.
When I got an email asking me if I was coming to the reunion, I begged off, jokingly saying that I couldn't come because I never fully recovered from that incident. So she emailed me after that, and as it turns out, she wasn't allowed to date until she was 16.
At least that's her story now.
