Are those bats on her dress?
I previously dubbed this Sourpuss dress the “dress of the year.” A bat dress can be a little cliche, but that is fine with me. After I posted about the dress, I bought one (of course). And, I have worn it a great deal. So often, in fact, that just about everyone I know (friends, family, neighbors) have seen me in it.
Recently, I wore it on the beach on vacation. I dressed up because we were walking along the beach to get to a restaurant. Perfectly normal. Perfectly natural.
Apparently, my somewhat uptight and conservative uncle saw a picture at my mom’s house of me wearing this dress on the beach.
Below is the conversation (more or less) that followed:
Uncle to mom — Are those bats on her dress?!?
Mom to uncle — Yes.
Uncle to mom — Didn’t she know she was at the beach?!?
Mom — I suppose she did.
Uncle to mom — Why would she wear a dress with bats on the beach?!?
Mom — That is how she always dresses.
Uncle to mom — Arghh grumble grumble [or insert some other inaudible sound of disgust]
What does all this mean? It is a great dress. Seriously, if it can provoke a reaction like that from my uncle, just imagine what it can do for you. Highly recommend.
