You… a Post a few IG Stories where she looks hot. b Text her fam so we’re all on the same page re: presents. c Plan a drive-by surprise party. What says “I love you” more than 100 people honking?? 2. You’re 10 minutes late for a first date and staring dead-eyed at your closet. What half-assed look do you grab? a An easy lil sundress because I just…can’t with anything more complicated. b Half-assed what? I vetted this outfit last week. c Something that’ll look great on Instagram…for when I make them post that pic of me. 3. You’ve offered to host your crew the next time y’all can safely go out again. What are you serving up? a Meh, they can bring whatever! My fridge…
