The Topic: Really need an answer...

  The A~Man

Okay, it's times like these that I really miss Forum 3000, since I might have actually gotten a helpful answer from it. But, in its absence, I shall ask you all.

In a nutshell: a "friend" decided to hook me, a junior, up with her friend, a senior, for prom. At first I figured it'd be too awkward since I don't know the person at all, so I said no. But after debate with another friend, I decided to ask said "friend" if I could discretely get the girl's number, in case I decided to ask her. Well, she told the girl that I'd be asking her to prom, and now I'm really thinking that this is pushing the boundaries of my doing-a-favor-as-a-nice-guy limits. However, I'm supposed to talk to her tomorrow after the last available time to buy tickets for prom. So I either have to buy the tickets, or not buy them, and either ask her or talk to her about it, respectively. Since I'm leaning towards not asking her, I need to know how I can gracefully decline the offer.

Thanks for your help.

So, you've already made up your mind, and you just want us to validate your decision? And you've already delayed making up your mind so long that there's no graceful way for you to bow out...

It sounds as if you really don't need our help. Just suck it up and be a man.

I do not mean to be rude, Counselor, but it seems to me that your duties as ship's counselor have suffered slightly since you decided to take on extra bridge command duties. Perhaps the added responsibility detracts from your primary function on the ship.

Oh, shove it, Data.

Of course, it could also be your incessant drinking.
