She looked great!

Several weeks ago, my youngest daughter, Cakes, came up to me with her face beaming, “Dad, I bought a new dress for the prom.”

“What prom?”

“The Senior Prom.”

“When is that?”

“April 10th.”

At the time, that seemed like the far distant future, so I focused on more immediate concerns…

“How much did it cost?”

“Only $180!”


She then proceeded to validate her “thriftiness” by comparing it to all of her friends…

“How many times will you wear it?”

“Probably once.”


Well, today she put that dress on…

She looked great! While I have not been completely napping, she has blossomed into a beautiful young woman right under my very nose!
