Hey Dave! It’s Emma, your formals date for this Friday. I just wanted to let you know the plan for pre-formals. A group of us (who you do not know at all) are going to meet at my place first, just a small group—super chill. Anyway, here’s the itinerary for the night:

1) Arrive promptly to my apartment at 9 p.m.

2) From 9-9:15 p.m. we will take pictures, and I will demand that these pictures only be taken from certain angles.

3) Then from 9:15-9:20 p.m. we will walk to a downtown house. Here there will be a larger gathering of people you also do not know.

4) From 9:20-10 p.m. we will both awkwardly stumble through the party, saying partial hellos and feigning interest in one another.

5) At 10 p.m. we will arrive at the downtown restaurant where the event is being held. I will insist you get me a drink. I will not consume the drink on the claim, “Oh, it’s too strong.”

6) After 10 p.m. I truly do not care what you do. I will have disappeared with a group of friends by this point anyway.

Okay, that’s everything! Just wanted to get in touch before formals to let you know what’s up. It’s so chill, but just be on time!
