The scene plays out in high schools all over the country. She just stands there... glowing in the spotlight, looking irresistible. Everybody wants a dance. You can't help yourself. Even though you KNOW you can't dance with her (well, in my school everybody COULD dance with her. Except me... because I was a dweeb) you just stand there and stare.
Everybody may take her picture that night, flashes sparkling, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Might as well remember her in all her glitter that night, so you aren't disappointed years later if you discover she was the girl that peaked in high school.
