"How are you going to answer her?" his mom queried. "I don't know. That's why I have sisters," he replied.
The next night his reply found its way to her doorstep--a red velvet cupcake from The Sweet Tooth Fairy complete with homemade "YES" flag.
Luckily this asking/replying interchange was relatively simple (not to mention delicious.)
Do they do this where you live?
Often the "asking" can be quite elaborate in these parts, and it really is only done for the bigger school-sponsored dances like PROM, MORP, Homecoming, etc. The concept was foreign to me until I came to BYU as a college freshman. Once again I live in Provo, and the practice is as strong as ever.
Anyone know how and when this even started?
