“Adolescence isn’t just about prom or wearing sparkly dresses.” (Jena Malone)
Yes, for my teenage daughter it’s about a lot of things—including working two part-time jobs, one of them at Cold Stone.
She came home last night to report the experience of describing her dress to her date so he could coordinate his attire. She told him it was black and champagne. But the boy couldn’t grasp the concept of that particular color description—champagne. My daughter said she tried a few other descriptive words and finally hit on the idea to put it in terms he could understand. (They both work at Cold Stone.)
“It’s the color of coffee ice cream!”
Light dawned in his eyes; he got it.
I guess you could say my daughter is heading to prom in a dress the color of hot fudge and coffee ice cream. And apparently, her date will be dressed to match. But here’s what’s really important, according to someone who ought to know: ”Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.” (Yves Saint Laurent)
