Skirting the Issue
Armed with a gift certificate from my friend Mindy, I hit the Ann Taylor Summer Sale. I brought this darling stretch twill skirt, but since I am not 5' 10" and 102 pounds it looks slightly different on me.
Nonetheless, I like it. So I wore it to church Sunday.
That evening we went to dinner at my parents' house. Shortly after arriving, my fashion oblivious father donned in a checkered western- cut shirt from Shephlers which was unbutton at the neck one too many buttons, commented, "Did you get a new skirt?"
"Er, yeah. I can't believe you noticed."
"Well of course I'd notice! You haven't worn anything that stylish in years."
Was that a compliment? Either way it is certain his head injury from 2004 is much more serious than we originally thought.
