Ha Ha Ha

I know, this is random of me, but I thought you might enjoy this. (Especially my mom...)


Mother of the Bride

The wedding day was fast approaching. Everything was ready, and nothing could dampen Jennifer's excitement.

Her mother Sheila finally found the perfect dress to wear and would be the best-dressed mother of the bride ever!

A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn her new mother-in-law, Barbie, had purchased the same dress. She asked Barbie to exchange the dress, but Barbie refused, "Absolutely not! I'm going to wear this dress. I'll look like a million bucks in it!"

Jennifer told her mother, who graciously replied, "Never mind, dear. I'll get another dress. After all it's YOUR special day, not ours."

Two weeks later, another dress was finally found. When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, "What are you going to do with the first dress? Maybe you should return it. You don't have any place to wear it."

Sheila grinned and replied, "Of course, I do, dear. I'm wearing it to the rehearsal dinner."

Yet another advantage to skipping the wedding altogether. So much easier to just get married on a ski slope. :-D

Oh! I love it! (Should I admit that!) Will definately share that with the girls in our family. They are all very sweet and gracious, though :0)

I should probably qualify my enjoyment of this, and my mom's, by saying that she is not a catty woman, but she was a wedding coordinator for many years :0)

ROFTL! That is one resourceful mother of the bride!

"Revenge is a dish best served cold" credited to Star Trek in a comment here...
Sorry, I can't let STAR TREK (!) get credited for that one! One of the earliest recorded (in print) statement is from 1782 "Les Liaisons Dangereuses" (Dangerous Liasons) by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos; though there are similar proverbs/idioms existing in many languages and cultures - Sicilian, Pashtun, etc. So it's a bit hard to say where it really started. But WAY before Star Trek! (Sorry, it's the English teacher in me that couldn't let it slide!)

Way to go, Tam-Tam :0)

I knew the quote was older, but didn't have a source.
