Cool Keeping It Creative

OK, so I'm a junior in high school right now, and there's a girl I really wanted to ask to prom. I was desperately trying to think of a creative and cute way to ask her to go with me. She just got her license (lucky girl's driving a Benz!), and she was super nervous she would get a ticket parking in the junior parking lot (we park off campus due to our quasi-urbanesque campus), so whilst lying in bed, it hit me: make a parking ticket! I used the 'Mini Motering Citation' humorous ticket available here:
HTML Code:
http://www.miniusa.com/#/play/collectibles/citation-m
and cleared out the text using photoshop in order to fit my needs (i.e. make it more of a real parking ticket, and less of a joke. So, I get on the bus to the jr. lot, and I stick it on her windshield. And wait. What I didn't know is that someone had accidentally thrown her phone down a storm drain, so while it was retrieved undamaged, she was really stressed out. So when she saw the ticket she almost didn't read it! Thankfully, my friend was waiting in his car next to her and encouraged her to read it. She gave me the 'that was SO not funny' look after, but then she smiled, and said yes

Here's the ticket:

Haha I thought my fellow moterheads would enjoy this.
EDIT: Yeah, I know I made a few spelling/grammar errors, I *probably* should have read it out loud first

Thanks guys! The general consensus from my friends at school so far is that it was a good idea. At the very least I have a few more respect points from the ladies (always nice to have some of those just in case shit hits the fan)
