The following is a transcript of a IM chat I had with the hubs while stressing about what dress to get for my brother’s wedding. I’d recently had some awkward experiences with dresses that looked long enough on the hanger and when standing still, but exposed far too much while trying to pull a one year old out from under a couch.
He says: you really should focus on finding dresses that are mid-calf
She says: why?
He says: that way there is no possibility of them being too short
He says: a dress should cover your knees when you sit.
She says: they don’t really make dresses that long, have you noticed?
He says: I have noticed. But I still see people wearing them…
She says: Maybe a time machine back to 1985 would solve that?
He says: I can look for one on ebay
He says: a time machine that is
She says: I wouldn’t put it past you :)
She says: OH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD
He says: not at all what I thought it would look like
She says: YOU ARE IMPOSSIBLE
He says: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/DeLorean-Back-To-The-Future-Time-Machine-Time-Machine-1981-DeLorean-Back-To-The-Future-Time-Machine_W0QQitemZ200463030088QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUS_Cars_Trucks?hash=item2eac871748
He says: that’s more like it
He says: bret michaels was in that car
He says: look at the pics
He says: make sure you put a tissue on the seat before you sit on it
She says: ………..
She says: I give up
He says: he has the yuckies
He says: you don’t want to sit where he sat
