Being single is like a Trail Mix of emotions: it's cool, empowering, fun and yet, every once in a while, you find a raisin. (Gross).
(In case you needed further evidence of how generally unpleasant raisins are.)
For 18-year-old Josee Stetich, her single-lady-raisin-moment came in the form of a Valentine's Day dance at her high school in Bountiful, Utah. Josee and her two friends had been preparing for the "Sweetheart Dance," buying dresses, doing their makeup, hair and generally getting excited. Everything seemed to be going smoothly until the three girls arrived at the Utah State Fairgrounds for the party.
When the three girls tried to get in, Josee was refused while her two friends were allowed to enter. Josee, who is single, was denied because the V-Day themed dance was supposed to be for couples. The tricky part is, all of the girls are single -- none of the girls had been formally asked by a date to the dance. However, Josee's friends were able to enter because they were sharing a ticket.
“They said, ‘No, you can't come in, because you don't have a date,' ” Josee told a local station, “I've gone to this school for three years, and I never even knew about that rule.”
But like a cool, calm, classy, collected lady, Josee didn't make a scene at the event; she and her girls all left. KATV reports that the girls "went to Hatch Family Chocolates, where they were given a tour of the kitchen and free samples."
Hella boss. Chocolate is the best part of trail mix, anyway.
