Anonymous asked: Dearest Aunt Jilli, I'm in a particularly sticky situation. A boy I know asked me to prom, and because I'm incredibly socially awkward and shouldn't be allowed out of the asylum, I thought it was all a joke and said no rather rudely to the poor boy. I feel incredibly awful and want to apologize, but further plot twist! His friend who is madly in love with him heard and is quite angry with me, within reason I suppose. Any advice you give would be highly appreciated, especially before tomorrow.
Oh pumpkin! Firstly, apologize to the boy who asked you to prom, explaining it to him just like you did in your message here. Secondly, explain the same thing to the madly-in-love friend AND tell them to go ask the boy out!
