I was going to my first school dance!   I was so exited to purchase a dress, see all of my friends, and hopefully dance with a guy.

When I told my parents of this event, my mom immediately said she would take me dress shopping.   My dad, on the other hand, was flipping out and wanted to be a chaperone!   What could be more embarrassing than a parent chaperoning and following you everywhere when you are supposed to be having fun?
  
“Will they let parents just sit in the gym and watch their kids?”  my dad asked.
“Jim!”  my mom said in astonishment.
“Or maybe I could chaperone…..” my dad said.

I nearly had a stroke after he said that.   I could just imagine it--my dad sitting at the table, looking at me, watching my every move through binoculars, and not letting a boy come even anywhere near me.   Talk about nightmares!!   He told me that he would have a bullhorn and scream through it at any boy who asked me to dance.  

Luckily, my mom addressed the terrifying situation, had a long discussion with my dad, and I was successfully dropped off at the school that Friday night--without my dad as a chaperone.   The whole time I was there, I mainly talked with my friends and took a few pictures.   I didn’t dance with a guy, because I had to leave early.   We had to leave in time to attend a family Christmas get-together. 

I was so sad that I didn’t dance with a guy, but I had a really good time at the dance.

you did exactly what all young teens do at dances. you socialized with dear friends, and admired each other's dresses. maybe you even took pictures. dancing was hardly a priorty. however, karate was, if needed, an option to use. i love your opportunity to have caring parents to scope out this memorable time. these are memories to remember!

Methinks that the "long discussion" would also make for an interesting story. Two things come to mind......either you are so beautiful that the guys that age are too afraid to ask you to dance, of being a dad myself, I would have paid the boys not to ask. Did you ever think that your dad was probably more terrified than you? And your mom did great where angels fear to tred. You will get your dance, & many more, but I sure do love that bullhorn idea.
