Need help ASAP

Hey guys,

Tonight is my school's Senior Prom, and I do not regret not going. Every chick I asked had a date (they were telling the truth) and I declared to my friends that I wouldn't go to Prom with out a date. Also, I just got home from BU college orientation, so time would have been an issue too (it was from June 14-16).

Before I went to BU, some friends and I arranged to go on a cruise around NYC from 1:30AM-4:00 AM. The catch for me however is that I got exactly zero hours (or close to it) during my 3 days/2 nights of orientation.

Obviously, I am very tired today (I was really awake yesterday though ) and if I go on this cruise, I will be sleeping on the boat the entire time. WhenI walked around BU this morning, I thought I was sleepwalking.

When I explained this whole situation to my friends, it didn't go down too well for them. Knowing how my body works, yes I will end up sleeping on the boat and yes, I will be sick during the weekend if I went on this excursion. They suggested (w/ my counter-argument):
-Sleep for 4 hours before you go on the cruise (the nap will make me more tired IMO - it probably will)
-Drink coffee/Red Bull (I don't drink either, and I don't think the coffee will really help. I'm not touching Red Bull)
-Sleep in the car (I can't).

So, what do I tell my friends here...how do I say no, but get them to accept it? Yes, I know it's Senior Prom and all, but I am not risking my health for this - I never viewed Prom as a life-altering event. I've also been not feeling real well on-and-off the past couple weeks either.

*note that I would WANT to do this, but I have to see the forest from the trees here and realize that it probably isn't the best for me (well-being wise) at the moment.

1. Stop being a pansy. In college, you'll have to deal with plenty of sleepless nights and days.

2. Take a nap.

3. Go on the cruise.

All that matters is how sentimental you are; if prom doesn't mean anything to you and you're going to cruises and stuff, just skip it. I went to 3 proms in high school and what little I remember about them was awkward.

And speaking of awkward, I even had dates to those proms; you can't fly solo to the prom, it's not a middle school ice cream social. Believe me, evereyone will be there with a date except for the 4 fat girls and their 2 dorky girlfriends who will all wear thrift store dresses and dance in the corner like every song is the hokey pokey.

Is the dilemma that you're friends are going to be "upset" for you not going? Blah, cruises and college are so much more worth it. Skip it.

Ok here is Karma for you.

This hot girl who was a sophmore and that I made out with asked me to take her to prom.

I was like aight.

Then I decided to ask another girl who I also made out with and then dumped the hotter girl. I'm not sure why I was probably on the marijuana.

Anyways on the day of the prom the girl got grounded for selling weed or something.

I went by myself and smoked cigars with the principle..But I hated highschool.

Prom was lame.

The End..

Assuming you don't have to go to the prom to go on the cruise, sleep through the prom and go on the cruise.
