Prom Dress Commentary From My Mom

I have laughed harder with my mother than just about anybody in the world. She and I have had many laughing times over the person is the best, but we've had many a laughfest over the phone, and now emailing too.

When she heard about the prom dress being made over here she told me a fantastic story about how she got my youngest sister's prom dress at a yard sale for a quarter. ......ho hum.

Here's the email she just sent to me that made me LOL. So I called her and she and I are on the phone right now talking and laughing as usual.

Here's what she wrote in her email!

"just read your blog about the prom dress mess. I'll write the end of the story for you.

The day of the prom my daughter spent the better part of the day preparing her hair, make up, fingernails, and toenails while in constant contact with her boyfriend. It turned out that we hadn't considered any jewelry so we went to the mall to find something appropriate. There was nothing appropriate but we bought something anyhow. As the magic hour approached, that moment when her boyfriend would soon arrive and she put on the dress viewing herself from all angles in the mirror (full length unfortunately), she made her final decision. "I'm not going", she said. "
