Dan does not chaperone high school events. I've begged him to go to some of the dances because I think they'd be fun, some of the fundraisers because I think he would look good if he did, and on and on, but he refuses. He related an actual conversation between him and a student to Julie and me, and we about died laughing, but he was totally serious!
Dan (speaking to the student): You know how you get to see all your buddies during the school day, every day, and then when you guys have dances, you get to hang out with them Friday nights too? Well, I want to have time to hang out with my buddies too and I can't do that if I'm always chaperoning your stuff!
But the kids kept asking, and so he finally agreed that he would chaperone their last dance of the year.
Without knowing the exact date of the dance.
Turns out, it's the last day of school.
Therefore, completely encompassing the Lost season finale.
And here comes the ultimate sacrifice part....
I told him I'd go with him and help chaperone instead of watching Lost without him.
