One never knows when one will meet that special someone.  When such an opportunity does come along one doesn't want to be depressed or disheveled.  The best way to prevent that is to try to always have an attractive appearance and to try and always keep one's mood positive.

    Tom Lehrer wrote a funny song about the importance of being prepared.

Be prepared,
that's the Boy Scout's marching song
Be prepared,
as through life you march along
Be prepared to hold your liquor pretty well
Don't write naughty words on walls if you can't spell

Be prepared
to hide that pack of cigarettes
Don't make book
if you cannot cover bets
Keep those reefers hidden where you're sure
That it will not be found
And be careful not to smoke them
When the scoutmaster's around
For he only will insist that it be shared
Be prepared

Be prepared,
that's the Boy Scouts' solemn creed
Be prepared,
and be clean in word and deed
Don't solicit for your sister, that's not nice
Unless you get a good percentage of her price

Be prepared,
and be careful not to do
Your good deeds
when there's no one watching you
If you're looking for adventure of a new and different kind
And you come across a Girl Scout who is similarly inclined
Don't be nervous, don't be flustered, don't be scared
Be prepared
