The Perfect Dress April 7, 2010Posted by Mary W. Matthews in Humor, Jokes.
Jennifer’s wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could dampen her excitement — not even her parents’ nasty divorce.
Her mother, Maude, had found the PERFECT dress to wear, and would be the best-dressed mother-of-the-bride in history.
A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father’s new, beautiful “trophy” wife had bought the same dress as her mother, only in size 0.
Jennifer asked Barbie to exchange her dress, and explained why. Barbie refused. ”Absolutely not! I look like a million bucks in this dress, and I’m wearing it,” she replied. Jennifer wondered whether Barbie had found out what dress Maude planned to wear and deliberately gone out to buy the same dress out of sheer spite.
Jennifer told her mother, who graciously said, ”Never mind, sweetheart. I’ll get another dress. After all, it’s your special day.”
A few days later, they went shopping, and did find another gorgeous dress for Maude.
When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, ”Aren’t you going to return the other dress? You really don’t have another occasion where you could wear it.”
Maude just smiled and replied, ”Of course I do, dear! . . . I’m wearing it to the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding.”
