Second Stop - The Dress
I could have become a dress locator for anyone in the state. A mother or daughter could have described what they wanted in a full length white gown and chances were I could have told them where it was because I had seen it and my daughter had rejected it.
That was until she went to have it altered. As she tried it on for the seamstress the lady immediately looked at her and told my daughter she should never wear that dress. It did nothing for her. Mercifully, my daughter did not take her advice to heart but thanked her and brought the dress home. Undeterred, she found another lady to alter the dress, and life went on.
