A North Carolina high school student said he made up for the lateness of his prom invitation to his girlfriend with balloons and signs at the side of the road.
Jake Doster, a senior at South Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte, said he arranged balloons and 10 pieces of poster board at the entrance to his girlfriend's Cameron Wood neighborhood that combined to create the invitation: "Lauren will you go to the prom with me? Love, Jake," The Charlotte Observer reported Wednesday.
Doster waited, flowers in hand, for his girlfriend of six months, junior Lauren Blight, to drive past on her way to drop off a friend.
Blight, who immediately accepted the invitation, said Doster has always been romantic.
