Broken Rules

Is it just me or isn’t it some unwritten rule that Moms are supposed to keep the Prom Dress and all Bridesmaids dresses of their daughters, in their homes, until the day they die?

Seriously. I think it’s a rule somewhere. One day, the Mom dies, and the kids come to the house, going through the closets and the daughters find their old prom dresses… the bridesmaids dresses of the first weddings they were in… weddings that occurred while they still lived at home. And they hold up the dresses and reminisce, “Oh, remember so-and-so that you went to prom with? Whatever happened to him?” Or “Oh! I remember that wedding! We all wore red and the dripless candles started to BURN under the air conditioning and big pieces of black wax chunks fell to the floor of the Navy chapel…”

See… that’s what was supposed to happen… in about THIRTY YEARS! But noooo, my Mom sent these dresses to MY house. WITH MY SISTER!

P.S. That's not what was in the box... that comes tomorrow...

C;mon let us in on what's in the box already. If it's something really gross and/or disturbing, we want pictures! (Praying for bodies of pets past)

It was not what I expected.

I have a new definition of EVIL...and yes, your picture is right beside it! ;-)

Have a great time my meeting with THE MENTOR! Yikes! That'll be interesting.

Okay... I have to protest Bou - you are making me feel really old! I know exactly how your parents feel - getting rid of all that stuff. It's the mode I've been in lately. When my daughter and her husband bought their townhouse, I went through her closet and boxed up all her stuff - I told her she had space for it now so she could deal with it. (you should've heard the whining - LOL). I still have her prom dress... I don't know what to do with it. She said she doesn't want it. Hmmm... decisions, decisions...
