My fabulous friend Barb reminded me today about my Christmas shopping trip when I was in search of an item that my mom wanted for Christmas. I was basically in tears, hysterically laughing as I ran down the description to see if she could guess what I was describing. I don’t think two people ever laughed so hard. Thank goodness for waterproof mascara!
I’m going to give you the run down of the phone call with my mom and I’d love for you to guess what I am describing:
Me: Mom, what do you want for Christmas?
My mom: I want “X” but I like it to have certain things.
Me: What do you mean? How can “X” have certain things?
My mom: Well I like flared sleeves.
Me: Flared sleeves? For “X”? Ok…
My mom: I’d like it to be A-line, but if it’s not I need a bigger size.
Me (laughing): Ok wait, I need to write this down. Who knew that “X” would have specifications mom?
My mom: And a peter pan collar.
Me: A what?
My mom: A peter pan collar. I really like flounce too.
Me: Mom, now you are getting ridiculous! What the heck is flounce!?
My mom: It’s at the bottom of “X.” I like flounce at the bottom, about an inch or two of flounce.
Me: Ok, I guess we’ll see if I can find what you’re looking for.
And let me tell you, I had to call my mom from my cell phone in the middle of Sears Women’s department because I had no clue what a peter pan collar looked like and I couldn’t find this particular item with flared sleeves. Barb and I were laughing so hard that people were staring. And don’t you know that when my mom opened her gift on Christmas, she informed me that there wasn’t enough flounce. Damn the flounce! haha.
So can you guess what it is my mother was describing?
