This is so funny. You developed your characters well. Great descriptions. I love title and the ending. Good job. Keep writing.
I thought it was clever to show the POV from the man. Usually when we think about getting ready for the big dance, it's the girls who worry.

My only suggestion would be do not go into quite as many details about how to tie the tie but instead show the antics of the guys in the room.

I do think you did a nice job on this. You show the conflict right away and you grab my interest. The ending was great too. Good job.
You have stirred old memories of the first time I tried to tie a tie. What a hoot that was in junior high. All my working career and Sundays I wore a tie so I can tie one blindfolded. Now that I'm retired, I don't miss it a bit. I like the humor in your story.
Congratulations on ranking 10th in level one!
