“What's wrong with me, Charlotte? Here I am seventeen years old and not a boy has asked me for a date. I know I'm just as good looking and as neat as anyone in school.”
“Why, Ernie Lewis asked you for a date once, and didn't Harry Lang want to take you to his Sunday School party?”
“Oh yes, but who wants to have a date with Ernie? He wears glasses and has a bad complexion, and Harry Lang talks of nothing but livestock! Can you think of anything more boring?”
“Now listen to me, Thelma! Since you ask me what is wrong with you, I'll tell you. You're too 'high-hat.' Just because a boy wears glasses is no sign that he is not a good scout. Ernie can row a boat better than anyone else in school, and he's wonderful in his home.
