My son, Benjamin wanted to ask a girl to Homecoming. He wanted a unique way other than the usual, which is just walking up to the girl and asking her, "Will you go to Homecoming with me?"

Some of his friends have come up with some unique ways to ask the girls. One boy had wrote, "Will you go to Homecoming with me?" and taped it to a remote control car, then drove it up to the girl. Another boy wrote each letter of HOMECOMING on separate pieces of poster paper and had his friends hold them up in front of the girl.

The girl that my son wanted to ask plays soccer for the Naches Rangers. They had a soccer game yesterday. Benjamin printed up a slip of paper that said, "Will you go to Homecoming with me?" Then, he taped it to a soccer ball and handed it to her after her soccer game. She said, "Yes!"

I was so impressed with the creative ideas for asking girls that the boys are thinking up.
