5th grade is hard for parents
The purpose of the elementary school's Sock Hop is not a fundraiser (though that is what they will have you believe). The true purpose it to make families crazy.
Children begin dreaming of the Sock Hop several weeks before the actual blessed event. When they are in the younger grades their dreams of the dance are mainly of candy and "looking cool." When they are in the older grades their dreams are of "who will I go to the dance with?!?!"
You will go to the dance with your family.
You will NOT go to the dance with some kid who offered to pick you up in his golf cart.
You will NOT go to the dance with some kid who suggested that you go with "a real He-Man" like himself.
Your parents are currently seeking therapy.
