Johnny was a bright, charming boy and he was even fairly good-looking.
The only problem was that he had lost his eye in a fishing accident when he was younger.
They were too poor to afford a glass eye, so his father made him a wooden one.
He was made fun of all through school for his eye and it completely destroyed his self esteem.
But he was tired of letting the world get him down.
The school dance was coming up and he would be damned if he didn’t let himself have a good time.
Johnny liked a girl named Lisa.
She was shy and just as lonely as he was, due to having a fairly pronounced mustache, earning her the nickname, “Hair-lip”.
Well Johnny saw past her stache and thought she was the most beautiful girl in school, and he decided he was going to ask her out.
He waited until lunch, and spotted her sitting alone in the corner.
He walked up to her and said, “Lisa, I’ve been seeing you around for a while, and, well… Would you like to go to the dance with me?”
Lisa’s eyes lit up and she said, “Would I!”
Johnny said, “Hair-lip!” and walked away.
