5. They do look mighty young.

My guess would've been freshmen in high school. When I was in school, at least one out of the couple had to be a junior, at the youngest. Maybe the boy is really smart and he's graduating early. He certainly doesn't look like a junior or a senior, but sometimes people look younger than they are for their entire lives.

6. They were juniors:

High school junior Jake Schwartz has been dating his girlfriend, Paige Drury, since they were in ninth grade, so when it came to deciding whether or not to ask Drury to junior prom this year, the 17-year-old says it was a no-brainer.

Schwartz, who lives in Glastonbury, Connecticut, came up with a sweet way to ask Drury, who is blind, to be his date: On a poster board, he used Hershey's Kisses to spell out "prom" in braille.

"It felt like the cutest thing to do," Schwartz told TODAY Parents. "I've seen very cute promposals from upperclassmen at my school, and not to be outdone, I wanted to do something similar. I decided to write a message in braille because I felt it would be more personal."

Earlier this week, on a day when the teens had the day off from classes at Glastonbury High School but were there for play rehearsal, Schwartz surprised Drury with his creation, at first telling her they were going to exchange Valentine's Day gifts since he was out of town on the holiday.

"We met at the school entrance and walked in together, and then went into the lobby of the auditorium to exchange gifts," Schwartz recalled. "After I sprung the surprise on her, we walked back out to applause from the rest of the cast. It was pretty surreal."

7. Wow! I never would have known that if I had

just seen a picture of them. Guess I've forgotten what kids that age look like. It's hard for me to tell what age people are if they're below 25.

Boy, is she going to be surprised when she finds out she's going to the prom with little Chris Hayes.
