I was over saying goodbye to Adelaide last week as she prepared to go back to Fort Collins where she is attending college. She and her mother Jll and I were chatting when Jll’s phone dinged, indicating a text message. It was from Addie’s sister Dagny, who was with friends. Here is how the message thread went:
Dagny: Hey mom if I find a homecoming dress today will you pay me back
Jll: Yes. Within reason. What is the price range?
Dagny: I don’t know yet.
(A bit of silence.)
Then, another ding. Jll’s eyes got big and she looked at Addie for assistance. Here’s why…..
Dagny: Can I get a bitch dress too
Addie and I spent the next few moments trying to think why our sweet little Dee would want a bitch dress (whatever that was).
Dagny: OMG. I meant church dress.
There was a great deal of relief in that room, let me tell you. And a great deal of laughter. Ya gotta love autocorrect.
Have a great weekend.
