Do you believe that there are no clearance racks in prom dress and bridal stores? Trust me, I know, because I searched high and low for one in every store. I did find one in the mother-of-the-bride section of a bridal store. Try as I might, I couldn't get Megan interested in even one of the dresses.
The dentist grabbed the tooth and started to tug.
So on we trekked through store after store, hour after hour. That store didn't have anything. That store was too expensive. That dress was too tight. That dress showed too much cleavage. That store was for losers. That store was for tramps.
And the dentist kept yanking on that tooth.
I gave up for a while and decided to take a break. I left Megan trying on dresses and headed to the food court. I collapsed on a table and began to doze when suddenly my phone buzzed. A text popped up that said, "I think I found it!"
"How much?" I asked with trepidation.
"It's not bad!" she replied.
Elated, I ran through the mall; in slow motion, of course. The theme from "Chariots of Fire" was playing.
The dentist was saying "The tooth is out!"
I caught up with Megan and the dress was indeed in good taste and well priced. I was elated. We paid for the dress and Megan smiled and said, "Now we need to get shoes and jewelry!"
And the dentist said, "Now let's get started on the next tooth."
