I Can't Believe These Movies Are Like, Out In Special 20th Anniversary DVD's!

I was a skinny, bad perm, huge upside-down glasses-wearing, no boobs 14 year-old 10th grader when 16 Candles came out. One day, my friend Nancy, who was in grade 12, told me a guy in her class liked me. He was going to call. I waited all week. He didn't call. I gave up. That Friday, 16 Candles was on First Choice. I watched it, sympathizing with Samantha and her desperate love for Jake. The movie ended. The phone rang. It was him. It was like magic. He asked me to go over to his place on the weekend to watch a movie. My mother wouldn't let me go. She was afraid he would turn out to be a pervert. He told Nancy he had decided I was too young for him. It was one of the most humiliating of many humiliating events during my teen years.
