Why did a mum invoke these tears? School functions are the last thing that I would associate W with. However, I am sure I would have forced him to at least make a mum for his girlfriend and take her to the game. At least that part did not involve dancing. He probably would have given in and I would have helped him with it.
Seeing that pretty girl with her impossibly sized mum was a reminder of another ritual that we won't be experiencing this year.
