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!”

“WHAT???”

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

“How many times will you wear it?”

“Probably once.”

“Once?…$180?!”

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!
